We're Alive!

Here's the view from the viewpoint at Harbor Vista County Park.  Note tsunami, coming in...

Just kidding.

But here's the Monkey hightailing it back up to high ground, just in case.

OMG! It got the dogs!

Oh, wait..... guess they were just retrieving flotsam.  Again, and again, and again.  Don't know *how* that keeps getting out in the water. Especially the tennis balls.  And the frisbees....
Another gorgeous late February day at the Oregon Coast.   Taken from the North Jetty of the Siuslaw River.

It was practically t-shirt and shorts weather.  No wind.
What I love most about this park.  Every time we go, someone's built a new little beach shack from the driftwood.Then it gets swept away in a winter storm, and someone else comes along and builds another one. The other thing I love about this part of the coast.??
The Dunes. 

Technically, Harbor Vista Park/ Heceta Beach is just north of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.   But it's got much of the allure and none of the off-road vehicles.  And the best ocean-view campground on the coast (shhhh....) 

Fair warning, though.  The resident crows are a bit spoiled, and are likely to scold you if you don't offer up some Milk Bone offerings.

Sidenote - the planned expedition for transplanted CA sea lions was put on hold due to the previously mentioned tsunami warning.  Besides, it looks like they've all headed back south again anyway.  "So long, and you're welcome for all the fish!!""
