All Mile 172 Reports
Another glorious sunny winter day at Heceta Beach! The recent high tides have washed away most of the summer dunes that accumulate on the high beach in front of the vegetation zone. Just another day in paradise!
Lots of wood debris stacked up on the beach from past high tide and storms.
Louie the Lab and I chased his Chuck-It ball from Driftwood Shores north to Sutton Creek and back today.
Nice sunny day for flinging the "Chuck-It" ball into the surf for the dog.
There were two dead sea lions in a 1 mile stretch between Driftwood Shores and the north jetty.
A 60-degree weather report brought out lots of people on the beach.
Took the missus out for a trial walk with her new walking sticks, initially heading north into the wind from Driftwood Shores Resort up to Sutton Creek and return with a nice tailwind.
