I don't know what made me think of the word mishmash the other day, meaning unrelated subject matter I think, but it fits this set of photos also.

The view looking south down Hwy 101 to my favorite beach, Meyers Creek and it's sea stacks.



A trail horse waiting to go for a ride on the beach.



A view of our home and the deck I take a lot of photos from.



A good set of Rhododendrens this year, a bit late because of the wet Spring.

Very nice views of the coast you have and a great image showing the rocks, also like the way you composed the image with road and barrier which leads your eyes to the main subject. Capturing the horse on a fast shutter speed galloping through the surf would make a interesting image, love the home and the veranda ideal for chilling with a beer or two.

What a lovely home, Richard- do you have a sit on a lawnmower  tractor ?... the lawn looks a lot to do with a push one or even one that has gears and drives itself. Love the Rhodi too. The beach really looks good for people to walk along and kids to play on-good solid sand, nice spot to take the photo from,not too high and not to low .The horse is a strange colour,Richard.

Thanks for the comments all. Regarding your questions John, the photo of the horse didn't turn out as planned. There were a lot of deep shadows on the left side of his face, and in brightening them and bringing back the color, it looks like I overdid it a tad, though he did have a lot of red in him. It didn't look that ruddish until you mentioned it!
I have a walk-behind self-propelled (thank goodness) mower that I use on the flat areas, but everything else is with a weedeater. The large grassy slope area in the photo is my septic leach field, I usually do it by hand with the weedeater, but here I had borrowed a neighbords 15 HP DR Mower while he was on vacation.
The photo of Hwy 101, The State is beginning to overlay the highway with new asphalt, and when they're all done and have it all restriped, I'll go back and take another photo with the road nice and black.
