Best weather on the Oregon Coast!

Well, that’s a matter of opinion.  After living here for a while, I like the rain and fog as much as the sunshine.  You could say the Oregon Coast is a little moody.

If you’re here for the views though, July – October is when you’ll find the clearest skies.  Of course my favorite views are between Waldport and Florence because you can see everything from Highway 101.

Today would be an awesome day for a horseback ride on the beach.

Our friends say the fishing is good.

First day of winter – Oregon Coast

It was 50F today!  Not bad for the first day of winter!

We grabbed a sandwich from Subway and ate it at Bob Creek Wayside, between Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and Heceta Lighthouse.  A couple seals were feeding in the cove and kept an eye on the beach-walkers.

Lots of seafoam and clouds remain from the storm that blew through last night.
