Oregon Coast Activities #6 from 101 Things To Do on the Oregon Coast - The Wreck of the Peter Iredale
There are many more than 101 Oregon coast activities, but in this series of blog posts, we'll be focusing on the areas which are within an easy drive or day trip from Sandlake Country Inn, our Oregon Coast bed and breakfast near Pacific City. These 101 Oregon coast activities near Hwy 101 along the Oregon coast will be from Astoria down to Newport. One thing to remember is that "the coast" is a region...not everything will be beach front.
The Wreck of the Peter Iredale
On October 25, 1906, sailing from Salina Cruz, Mexico to Portland, Oregon, the four masted British vessel, the Peter Iredale came aground on the Clatsop Spit. A heavy northwest squall grounded the ship and then high seas and wind drove the ship aground, where the rusted remains still stand.
