Even living 10 miles inland we never know what the coastline will look like when we get there.
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!
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.
Some pretty good wave-action too.
Beautiful view of Baker Beach from the top of the hill coming down from Sea Lion Caves on Hwy 101.
