The front edge of the fog was right on the shoreline today.
Not exactly the best for whale watching.
I was enjoying the drive south from Waldport, going in and out of the fog as we travelled down Hwy 101.
But this is the last of the view for a while so we pulled over for another couple of photos.
A couple weeks ago the California Goldenrod was a bright yellow. Now it has settled into a nice golden color.
On our way back from Florence, we stopped at Yachats State Park to see what we could see out in the deep blue sea.
Besides seeing the edge of the fog on the edge of the sea…
We see a flock of about 50 Black Brants. They looked pretty relaxed until they saw (or heard) an osprey flying above them. It didn’t take them long to clear out. What was amazing is that it only took them about 3 seconds from the first signal to all of them flying in formation out to sea.
One more stop in Waldport before we head up the Alsea River.
