February was the last of four monthly trips to photograph bunnies on the coast this winter. It almost didn’t happen because of a massive snowstorm! We didn’t have too hard of a time leaving Tigard, and I even said too soon “I’m so glad we were able to go today!” When we got within about 45 minutes of Pacific City (we were in Grand Ronde, so already detoured), we talked to a cop blocking off a road with obvious downed trees and wires, and he said if we wanted to go to the coast our best bet was to go down to Corvallis and over to Newport. I really badly needed to get out of my house for a few days, so it was an easy decision to just do it. We had gotten a Figaro’s pizza in Sheridan, in a fun and funny little twist of events, so at least we weren’t hungry. It was 5.5 hours of driving.

We stayed in a cabin in a campground right on the coast (but high up, out of the inundation zone 😅). The trip was a lot of visits to see the bunnies, in not-great light. At one point there was a cat in the campground and all the bunnies were on high alert, which was fun to watch. We walked the dogs at Sitka Sedge. We saw some deer; a fawn walked right up to me in the car.

I put off editing these photos for a long time. I took so many, and I knew all along that so few, if any, were usable for my project. But I really wanted to make it through them, and now I have! So catching up should be easy, or at least I’m not as daunted anymore. I actually got a new camera and a new lens this summer. For Michael’s wedding (COVID willing), which I am photographing!
