Busy Day at Yaquina Bay

Yaquina Bay south jetty is a favorite lunch spot for us.

What do they fish for from the south jetty?  Maybe the same thing the seals do?

Every so often you can see the seals jumping and splashing.  I don’t know if they were chasing food or just playing.

This Harlequin male doesn’t look like he’s in full breeding color.  Not sure how fast they change.  Maybe, since he’s married now, he’s changing back so he doesn’t attract more ladies?

Commute to Work?

Hope you have the day off!  This guy has to work 24/7 for his food.

We’ve got about a dozen campers in Tillicum Campground today.  There’s still room for you in the ocean front sites.

Another beautiful day at the beach!

High tides are in the mornings.  Low tides in the evenings.  Got a point 2 today and  a minus .2 tomorrow.
