Happy Friday Everyone!
Well, My Son and I were waiting and waiting for a sunny day to go to the Beach. So, we waited and waited, watching the weather forecast like crazy and eventually after a few weeks the first day of Summer started to look like a promisingly warm day at the Oregon Coast. So, we packed the car with seats and towels (more for wind protection, 'coz nobody in their right mind goes into the chilly waters of the Pacific ocean, except a toe or two, LOL! :)
We had a wonderful time, sat outside overlooking the Ocean for lunch and even got to go inside the house on the beach we will be renting later this year, YAY!!!
Here are a few photos from the first Day of Summer on the Oregon Coast :)

Cape Kiwanda's BIG Sand Dune! (The "kids" LOVE to climb this! )
Part of the BIG Sand Dune overlooking the Tidal Pools
There are always surfers at Pacific City, I think one just went under as I took this shot, oops!
See those few little specs.(not the really little ones they are foot prints He! He!) they are people, that is how BIG this Sand Dune is, you can just see on the bottom right someone running down it :)
Tidal Pools :)
Haystack rock as the Marina layer starts to form and we start to shiver.
Now it started to get chilly and out came the towels, the beach cleared really quickly, but rarely do the beaches get really crowded :)
A couple of shots taken about 30 miles on our return journey looking back the Coastal Range and the Marina layer.
I hope you enjoyed our little trip to the Oregon Coast :)
