I was surprised, yesterday, when I didn’t see any debris on the beach. But this morning was another story.
Rivers rising to major flood stage means they pick up a LOT of branches and logs and carry them out to sea. The current is carrying them north. So it only took a day for the debris from the Yachats River to get to Tillicum Beach. At least, I assume, that’s where this is from.
This is the north stairway at Tillicum Campground. Unbelievable!
We’re tired tonight. Busy checking out all the campgrounds for the wind damage. Nothing too bad, just a lot of cleanup, and the hosts are doing a super job in Blackberry and Sutton. Sutton has been without power for 3 days now!
Anyway, I’ll just post some of the pix I got before dark. First let me apologize for the lack of focus. They’re really not worth looking at unless you’ve been here. It’s the wind’s fault. It was hard to stand still!
If you’ve been here, though, hopefully you can tell enough to see the difference from this summer, or even 2 days ago!
Not exactly geezer-friendly anymore!
I remember my 2 year old grandson walking, straight off the sand, to that round carving in November.
The top 6 inches of this stump has been playing hide-n-seek for a year!
Now there are 4!
There must be 5 feet of sand missing! I think we’ve reached the floor. But there still aren’t agate beds exposed. Speaking of agates, there’s an Agate Festival in Yachats this weekend!
The wind is blowing from the south. So, I walked from the south to the north stairs to keep the wind at my back.
