Okay, I’d heard it rained a lot in Oregon. But when I think of “raining a lot” I think of the non-stop, no break in the clouds type of rain.
Although that certainly does happen here, it’s not the norm. Yesterday it was just showers with peaks of blue sky!
We packed a picnic lunch and headed south to checkout the work that’s been done in the campgrounds. One of our favorite spots on the central Oregon coast for a “picnic” (ie, sandwich in the truck) and whale watching is Bray’s Point. (Now if this gets too crowded I’m going to stop blogging!)
That photo is looking north over Bob Creek. We like Bob Creek for tidepooling and fishing and mussels.
Here’s the view to the south from Bray’s Point. I can see why businesses are named Silvery Surf this or that.
We always stop (if there’s a parking spot) at the Heceta Head Lighthouse overlook just north of Sea Lion Caves.
All the sea lions must have been in the cave yesterday because we didn’t even see any playing in the surf; let alone on the rocks below.
