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.

Oregon Coast – Last Day of 2012

Just a quick jaunt between Tillicum Campground, near Yachats, and Sutton Campground, near Florence.

Yesterday was bright and sunny and today it’s cloudy again.  But we didn’t get rain showers until after noon.

A perfect day on the Oregon Coast and a perfect end to 2012.
