Sun & Fun in December!





















Who says winter on the coast is stormy? I took this picture today at Haystack Rock in Pacific City. We've had chilly nights, but the days have been filled with sun and blue skies.

Pack a jacket and come to the coast to explore our amazing coast without the crowds of summer. Whale migration has begun and it's the perfect weather to hike to the tip of Cape Lookout, Cape Meares or Cape Kiwanda to whale watch.

Not only is it whale migration time, but the birds are traveling too. A multitude of geese, blue herons and many more. Are you interested in bird watching? Check out this Oregon Coast Birding Trail Checklist

All Oregon beaches are public and most allow you to drive on them. Don't even try it without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Even with 4 wheel drive you can get yourself in trouble. Such was the scene this afternoon on the beach at Cape Kiwanda.



















Here's the sign inviting you to park/drive on the beach...notice there's no warning sign!



















Looks like fun, right?



















Check out how deep those back tires are. Yup, they're stuck! Tide is coming in too. Sure hope someone is able to pull them out in time! DOH!!!
