Debris from the Yachats River on Tillicum Beach

I was surprised, yesterday, when I didn’t see any debris on the beach.  But this morning was another story.

Rivers rising to major flood stage means they pick up a LOT of branches and logs and carry them out to sea.  The current is carrying them north.  So it only took a day for the debris from the Yachats River to get to Tillicum Beach.  At least, I assume, that’s where this is from.

This is the north stairway at Tillicum Campground.  Unbelievable!

2 1/2 feet of this stump is showing

Maybe this is part of a “ghost forest“?

Windy today – lots of foam – high tide was 9.0 this morning and low was -1.0 this evening.
