Meerkat Moments

As the sun starts to go down over the Pacific people find a place to pull off Hwy 101 to watch it set.

We like to call them “meerkat moments” because we all look like a bunch of meerkats as we are lined up gazing, silently, at the sun.

On this late September Thursday evening, there’s hardly any traffic on Hwy 101.

Rock Creek and Cape Perpetua Campgrounds closed this week.  Wish we could keep them open longer for the few people who would camp in them!  But there are just not enough campers to keep them open.  Tillicum, Alder Dune and Sutton are beautiful campgrounds just off Hwy 101.  The drive between them (Yachats to Florence, Oregon) is worth spending a day on; tide pools, hiking, vistas, whale watching, beach walking, surf fishing, shellfish harvesting, Sea Lion Caves, Heceta Head Lighthouse and, of course, the sunset.
