Nature has a unique way of finding its way into stories, helping create moments that seem nothing short of magical. A recent TikTok from @kristinelliss posted on Monday, September 18th shows one such awe-inspiring moment, capturing the magic that unfolded on alone Oregon beach.
As the sun dipped low, this woman walked upon a sight that one could only dream of! It featured a local herd of elk frolicking playfully at the coastline. Check out the awe-inspiring video to see what dreams are made of.
Yesterday on the Oregon Coast was one of the most beautiful days I have ever witnessed. A perfect send off of summer. A local herd of elk walked down from the misty forests above to play in the ocean. Magic.

Elk, in particular, are drawn to water not just for drinking, but also for the minerals and vegetation often found near water. A coastal environment, with its mix of fresh and saltwater, provides tons of nutrients that these majestic creatures might not find elsewhere. Plus, the gentleness of the waves and the ocean breezes can offer relief, especially during hot weather. In addition, there’s something magical about these powerful creatures being drawn to the ocean. This is truly a sight to see!
In a time when moments are fleeting, and digital distractions are all around us, such moments serve as an important reminder of the magic that unfolds when we pause and surround ourselves in the world.
The Oregon coastline, with its elk’s unexpected beach visit, shows the beauty of life’s unpredictability and the surprising encounters that are there for those who venture out with open hearts and wide eyes.
