Coasting


This is Nye beach, a rare flat beach along the Oregon coast; even on a cool morning, there were lotsa folks running, walking dogs, wading into the c-c-c-cold water. The arrow points to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse.


This is the view from the Devil’s Punchbowl, further north. The arrow still points to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. The coast is far more scenic and rugged as you travel away from Newport, though there are still gorgeous beaches.


The Devil’s Punchbowl.


And that arrow is up on Cape Foulweather, where we headed next.


From up on Cape Foulweather, you can look down on the Devil’s Punchbowl. This high up, there are no beaches, except the ones for seals and otters, but the views are still beautiful.


Lastly, looking north from Cape Foulweather, where we had beautiful weather while we coasted.

I lived in Tacoma for a while, thanks to the US Navy, and I think the whole North West in its entirety is simply breathtaking!

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. The Oregon Coast is so instantly recognizable, too.

the pics are beautiful! Reminds me of Vancouver coast where I lived for a bit.

The world seems littered with devil's punchbowls; obviously he is a bit of a boozer!

Utterly breathtaking. Thanks for taking wonderful pictures and showing us a part of the US that is still beautiful.
