Moody Oregon Coast

Even living 10 miles inland we never know what the coastline will look like when we get there.

Intermittent Sun and Fog

The fog keeps the temps cooler so the Willamette Valley population tend to flock to it when temps rise.  (Actually, that’s probably not the technical reason for the cooler temps on the coast.  I just know there’s a correlation.)

We had lunch at Bob Creek, on Hwy 101, because there was a break in the fog where we could watch a big flock of birds in the surf.

The wind was pretty gusty – sorry about the shaky video!

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.
