It’s funny how we can be just 5 miles inland and not have a hint of the blue skies that were lighting up the coast today!
We had an early morning meeting in Cape Perpetua Campground. It is closed but we can get some work done in the off-season.
I’ve been ocean-deprived lately and I warned my hubby before we left. “You know it will be a perfect time for photos of the high tide and my camera is fully charged and I have an empty micro-drive and…” “I know.” He says. 🙂
So I commandeered the driver’s seat and headed to Cook’s Chasm after the work was done.
The Spouting Horn was really shooting high. And look at all that foam! The waves were making it all the way up to the little waterfall on the other side of the Hwy 101 bridge.
Thor’s Well was gorgeous today also. We were early enough that it was still in the shadow of the mountains.
I guess I can’t really call this a spindrift but this mist left a better rainbow.
Well, it’s time to head back but I’m draggin’ my feet. The tide was a little high for this spout on Yachats Beach Rd. Yachats always looks so pretty across the bay.
This is NOT the time to go for a walk on Tillicum Beach. Enjoy it from the campground until the tide goes back out a little ways.
The water was splashing over the seawall today so we stopped in Waldport too. There was a seal watching me take the photos but I didn’t catch him on camera.
If you’ve only visited Waldport, Oregon, in the summer, you’ve probably never seen this much water in the Alsea Bay.
