I've edited the title, dearest Mira! I'm so glad you like this view - it is one of my favorites, and I am grateful to the two young men fishing from the top of the cliff for giving some scale to the image. We will call it Mira's Bridge! Warm hugs for you, my friend :O)

Suzi in Oregon on November 28, 2009

You are always so kind to my images, dear Pom', thank you so much! Wishing you well :O)

The scale of these cliffs is really brought home when one looks at the size of the people on the top left of the photo, Suzi. What a wonderful view, and just the place for mermaids to swim and play under the bridge that Mira was so clever to spot :)))

Suzi in Oregon on November 28, 2009

A happy hello to you, Amelia, did you have a pleasant walk today? A cold clear day here. I will keep taking photos of this spot to note any change in angle of the leaning tree on the cliff, and just because it really is a lovely view :O)

I shall sit and wait here a while LTM ~ for surely mermaids will turn up in abundance sooner or later ~ a wonderful spot ~ A Golden Star for each mermaid's tail :)

A great place to take a dive for us!!

Glad you invited us to this lovely spot!

Gtz, from your far away friend,

Did you see our tails just then, dear GW, or were you looking out to sea? Thank you for the shining gift - I'll wear it in my hair :O)

Suzi in Oregon on December 4, 2009

Yes, it is perfect for a dive, dear LBM, especially now, with GW sitting on Mira's illusive bridge, and LGM getting ready to splash him - always happy to see friends from far away places - thanks for coming :O)

Many thanks, kaptan - I love this view as well, and visited it again yesterday (often do - not far away). Hope to post another image of it soon. There are two leaning trees now :O)

Hello Suzi,

many thanks for showing me this photo. Here all is looking summertime. The other more dangerous! And also here the tree want to survive, wounded...but never give up!! How long time this tree stay in this position? Let me guess: more than 10 years!?

Have a good friday, Udo

Suzi in Oregon on February 21, 2010

You could well be right, dear Udo, about the time this tree has been a cliffhanger - I have known it only two+ years, so I am chronicling it. Best wishes (O:

Greetings from Hungary Z.

When is the next M-dive due??



Suzi in Oregon on June 19, 2010

Fire up the transporter, dear LBM, pick up LGM and our own GW on the way. It's a perfect day here, and the tide will be high when you arrive! You have all the coordinates! After our dive, we can all eat home made bread, just out of the oven! See you soon, dear sister (O:

Here it is a different story Suzi - erosion has all but made the trees existence untenable. Unable to get the sustenance it needs and without the moral and physical support and love of other trees there seems to be no other way but for the tree to end it all.......

So sad!

Thank you for sharing - Jethro

Hi Suzi

Great link from Jethro's page I see you have captured a tree practising for the Olympic sport of tree leaning. This one has potential with bonus points for height however I saw Tree GB training HERE



Suzi in Oregon on January 16, 2013

The Forlorn Fir or Suicidal Spruce, dear Jethro, what a sad tale. I do prefer a mystery (O:
