The Japanese dock that washed up on Agate Beach in Newport, Oregon, is being removed this weekend. They sent a chunk of it to the Hatfield Marine Science Center to study the invasive species of sea life on it. Another chunk will be used to make a memorial for those who lost their lives in the Japanese Tsunami.
When the Willamette Valley (the I-5 corridor) gets hot, the coast gets foggy. The coast is cooler so LOTS of people head to the coast to cool off.
Our campgrounds were packed this weekend. I had frantic calls from poor-planners all weekend. After 10pm, I didn’t know what to tell them other than to keep driving south until they found something and they “may end up in California” 🙂
This weekend the fog wasn’t just a thick blanket. It came and went and came and went; giving us glimpses of the sun and making pretty formations against the rugged coastline.
Did you know there is a ghost story about the lightkeeper’s house at Heceta Head Lighthouse?
After a long day of workamping, I got to enjoy the foggy sunset from Tillicum Beach.
The fog seems to distort and enhance the beauty all at once!
