Nature’s Coastal Holiday

Today was a bright interlude between rain events and I headed to Azalea Park in Brookings hoping to find stranger #8.  I only found two electricians who were working, so I didn’t want to disturb them.  Instead, Blanca and I looked at the project they were working on, which is called “Nature’s Coastal Holiday” and is a display of some 500,000 colorful lights sculpted into coast-inspired animals and shapes.  It must be quite a spectacle in the evening!  For $1 per person, it can be enjoyed every evening through December 24 from 5 pm to 9 pm, including free hot cider and cookies.  But since I don’t like to drive home in the dark, I only looked in the daytime – that was also fun!  (Click on pictures to see larger.)

    WOW ! Impressive even by daylight. I prefer not to be on the Coastal Highways and byways after nightfall either.
    Thank you for sending these to ENJOY ! Trish

      Thanks, Trish, I thought it would be fun for you to see! On my way home, I saw 4 deer crossing the highway at the very same spot where I had my collision, but fortunately all drivers saw them and were able to slow down safely while they crossed! Whew!
