Posted on September 4, 2018

  Jim Cantore is back in town. Yes siree, his plane landed in Gulfport, Mississippi, last night and within minutes everyone on the coast seemed to know we had this famous visitor on our doorstep again. (Let’s just say that “sharing” appeared to be near an all time high.) All of us know exactly why he’s here. And it’s not for a fabulous beach vacation! Don’t get me […]

Pacific Golden-Plovers

Posted on May 23, 2012

My graduate school Alma Mater is the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and let me tell you, the campus is positively covered with Pacific golden-plovers, especially during the months of the standard school year (apparently, the lanky, mottled-gold little guys “winter” in Hawaii and on other Pacific islands, but breed in Siberia and Alaska from […]

Shark Eyes, “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

Posted on April 5, 2012

Our best shark eye!  Isn’t she a beaut? Skark eyes (Neverita duplicata) are members of the moon snail family (Naticidae). These beautiful, smooth, dome-shaped shells can grow up to 3, even 3 ½” high.  Usually a light brown to grey color, the tips (apexes) of the shells often sport a darker purple-blueish cast, giving the […]

Surfing a Shark: A Real “Fish Story” (Seaside, Oregon)

Posted on October 14, 2011

Here’s a different twist on the traditional “fish story,” and never mind how big he was. (Actually, the shark was “this big”. And, yes, he got away!) “A surfer says he was knocked off his board by a shark off the Oregon Coast and he ended up standing on the 10-to-12-foot great white for several […]

Oregon’s Coastal Quirks

Posted on September 19, 2011

We have always been thrilled with our trips to the Oregon Coast.  The scenery along the Oregon Coast, from the mouth of the Columbia River to McVay Rock (the last traffic light before the Oregon/California border), is among the most dramatic on earth!  Almost every twist or  turn of  Highway 101 (the coastal road) presents […]
