The Adventures of Paul Hughes

Posted by on Apr 27, 2019 in Visit Tillamook Coast | Comments Off on The Adventures of Paul Hughes

Professional photographer and Manzanita resident Paul Hughes has captured a bit of the world with his lens.
From bamboo rafts in the jungles of Southeast Asia to an attempt to photograph the mythical Loch Ness Monster, Paul hasn’t gathered much moss under his boots.
Paul has traveled 67 countries and 48 states. His photography has been exhibited in England, Germany, Korea, Japan, Mexico, continental U.S. and Hawaii.
Paul lives with his wife in Manzanita, a place they’ve called their home for over 20 years. It also happens to be one his favorite places to photograph.
Paul Hughes is a resident of Manzanita.
“There’s no comparing the light on the Oregon Coast,” he said. “It’s always changing.”
Looking at some of the moments he’s captured along the Tillamook Coast and it’s easy to see what he’s talking about: elk herds huddled together on Manzanita’s golf course; sunlight glowing on the Pacific Ocean; high clouds over Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain; rainbows piercing through rain clouds.
“I love showing people where I live,” he said.
As far as the area’s variety of locales, Paul wonders if he has to pinch himself every time he takes a photo.
“It reminds me of an old sign I once saw: ‘If you’re lucky enough to live by the beach, you’re lucky enough.’ And for those of us living on Oregon’s scenic coast, we are indeed lucky.”
Paul will participate in the Hoffman Center for the Arts May Gallery Show. Visit the Hoffman Center from May 3-May19 to view his work.
Paul “Coastal Cards” are sold locally in the Manzanita Visitors Center and the Garibaldi Museum.

Walk Neskowin’s historic homes

Posted by on Apr 24, 2019 in Visit Tillamook Coast | Comments Off on Walk Neskowin’s historic homes

A quick stroll through Neskowin is all it takes to notice the historic charm.
What was once primarily a farming and dairy community, has grown into a beachside neighborhood. Visitors are drawn to the area for the dramatic views of Proposal Rock, but are captivated by the atmosphere of the pristine, sleepy village.
A self-guided, walking tour of the historic Neskowin homes is a must.
Using Jan Boutin’s Historic Neskowin Village by the Sea sketch book, spend the afternoon enjoying one of the Tillamook Coast’s villages. Each page of the sketch book gives a brief history of several Neskowin homes and buildings.

Like the Community Cookhouse.
This Hawk Creek Drive cottage was built in 1910 and is one of the oldest cottages today in Neskowin. It was originally built as a community cookhouse for people who rented tiny sleeping cottages nearby.

Or the cottage of Sally Calkins Maxwell. In the 1950s, Sally, and Jean Spaulding were co-editors of the Yamhill News that reported on local activities in Neskowin. Stories included Mrs. East battling a bat, a flu bug invading town, and Mrs. Nicholas returning from Portland.
 

And some people call Neskowin, Next-of-kin because homes rarely are put up for sale. Such as the Parrot House. This cabin remained within the same family for nearly 100 years after being built in 1914. It gained its name because the owners were often seen walking around with parrots on their shoulders.
Copies of the Historic Neskowin Village by the Sea can be purchased at the Café on Hawk Creek in Neskowin.

Building together with Manzanita Lumber Co. and Stockton’s Nehalem Lumber

Posted by on Apr 1, 2019 in Visit Tillamook Coast | Comments Off on Building together with Manzanita Lumber Co. and Stockton’s Nehalem Lumber

You’re finally building that gazebo that will make summer at the beach house even better.
You have a long list of supplies and an even longer list of questions.
You can wander the sterile caverns of the big box stores.
Or, if you’re lucky enough to live near Manzanita or Nehalem, you can take advantage of two of the longest running lumber yards on the Tillamook Coast: Manzanita Lumber Co. and Stockton’s Nehalem Lumber.
Stockton’s Nehalem Lumber
Not only do both stock everything you need for sprucing up your beach house, they are local institutions staffed by people who always know exactly what you’re looking for.
They both also have deep community ties.
Located on the corner of Hwy 101 and Laneda Avenue, Manzanita Lumber Co. has welcomed visitors to town since the 1940’s. It has been an independent business for 55 years, run by the Stephens family.
Perched in the heart of Nehalem on the slope of Highway 101, Stockton’s Nehalem Lumber has been operating locally since 1960 when Eugene and Dale Stockton partnered to run the business.
Both also take pride in being community hubs and are often the first in line when it comes to lending a helping hand to local causes or events, such as programs at North County Recreation District, Manzanita’s Fourth of July Parade, and relief efforts during the 2016 Manzanita tornado.

Abstract expressionism with Eric Sappington

Posted by on Mar 4, 2019 in Visit Tillamook Coast | Comments Off on Abstract expressionism with Eric Sappington

Scraps of wood, house paint: rubbish to most people.But, when Eric Sappington turns on the electronic music in his studio, those discarded objects become art.Tucked away in the hillside of the Oregon Coast, Sappington creates pieces full of color, texture, and movement that he classifies as abstract expressionism.“It’s all really fluid,” Sappington said. “I get lost in it, and that’s good. Once I figure out something, it happens by accident. I discover out a lot about myself through my own art.”Along with being a visual artist, Sappington is a singer/songwriter.Fans enjoy his laidback-style and dedication to creating an experience, not just a performance.“I’ve never written down my song lyrics, most of them are free flow,” Sappington said. “I just start with a melody or my guitar and start making up words. I let it come to me. I’ve learned to just relax. I have to find a moment that I get locked in and create an experience”Find Sappington with his guitar at the Fairview Grange of Tillamook, first Saturdays for open mic from 6-8 pm. Soup and salad dinner by donation.Sappington’s visual artwork can be viewed at SOURCE in Garibaldi, as well as on his Instagram and Facebook pages.Sappington is also the Associate Artistic Director of the Oregon Coast Children’s Theatre and Centre for the Arts, serving in this position since 2002.  With this organization he leads art and theatre workshops in schools, is a puppet artisan and puppeteer, and helps organize and create public works of art.The post Abstract expressionism with Eric Sappington appeared first on Tillamook Coast.
