A Day at the Beach

Yesterday we decided we had not checked on the ocean in at least two months.  After taking care of some Christmas details in town we headed west.  It wasn’t really raining, but the windshield wipers were needed pretty much the whole time going over the coast range.  We just happened to time things so that we ended up at Mo’s in Lincoln City right at lunch time.  Yum! 


After a great lunch, we wondered along the beach.  The tide was unusually low and there was no wind, unusual in the winter.  We picked among rocks and found some agates.  I even found a whole starfish!


The sea gulls were out as were the sea otters across the Siletz Bay.IMG_3887


Since it is completely dark by 5 pm in these latitudes we decided to head home after short walk at Road’s End Beach.  The lighting was very interesting.  The overcast had broken up somewhat right where we were, but just up the beach it was still socked in. 


The light started catching the waves out at sea.


All in all it was a good day and we were assured that the ocean was still there. 

I am trying out Live Writer and it does seem much easier than composing the post directly on blogger.  So far.

  1. I have never tried live writer. I must be brave and give it the good ole college try! I enjoyed your post and your pictures. I so love to hunt for sea glass when I am on the coast. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!
