A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Two minutes of no corona news

Written April 30th, 2020 by Hasso Hering

If you’re climbing the walls because of the corona crisis, maybe it helps to contemplate the soothing sights of the Oregon coast. And since we’re not supposed to go there, how about a virtual substitute?

Here’s a couple of minutes of waves washing ashore, under a blue sky. Even a Coast Guard helicopter makes a brief appearance, though too far and too briefly to be seen well.

And this concludes today’s interlude of nature in spring. Did it help? Probably not. (hh)

    So what if we are told we can’t show examples of happiness with nature because it may encourage someone else to go there as well. Yet it is the very happiness that might actually keep us healthy and today the time with your video was well spent. Looks like social distance was not difficult and probably all the better for many of us to see and here your posts and videos. Keeping open our minds to more than just our own thinking of those things still packed in our day. It is good for all of us to go and find a sensible balance at least pay attention to how much you’re relying on the outside world right now and how much an Explorer may need some help at some point. So yes separate yourself and keep happy and healthy thank you :)

    I yearn for a coast fix. We talked abt a drive to Depot Bay, take out halibut at Gracie’s and enjoy the ocean across the way while we eat. Problem is a restroom….

    In the meantime, will enjoy your video.
