Welcome to the Beach
Welcome to the Pacific Northwest coast.
No crowds of umbrella dwellers, snack sellers, boardwalk, bikinis, or lifeguards on duty here…
nothing like a rewarding challenge!
It almost reads like drug warnings. Do not operate heavy machinery in the water. Don't drink and swim.
Sneaker Warning....wearing Chucks at the beach is unsafe?
Thanks for coming by folks ~
When we moved out west I was completely surprised by the west coast beaches and I continue to be today.
Every year, usually more than one human is taken by those sneaker waves, sometimes while they try to rescue their child or dog from the waves. Sometimes the would-be rescuer is the only one to die.
Last summer when we were at the coast, one small town was gathering funds for the funeral of one family whose child was playing on one of the enormous 'driftwood' logs that are ubiquitous on some Pacific NW beaches - a wave came in, the log rolled and trapped the child underneath.
Then there's the cliffs.....
But, I gotta' admit, I've never been to more beautiful spots than an Oregon beach, although there are a couple in far northern Cali that are pretty special, too. We got engaged on one of them, many moons ago, under starlight, no manmade light anywhere... a shout out to Moonstone Beach, Humboldt County, California : )
New favorite: Hecata Beach, Oregon. Can't wait to get back there!!
I loved CA but I never liked the look of the beaches and didn't swim there. I was scared to death taking my dog to one, figuring she being a fearless creature, would want to dive right in. I was raised on the Atlantic, spent my entire life swimming in it and while it's cold and dark and brooding, it's manageable. The west coast beaches are ice cold and wild. They're perfect for bleating seals and walruses. I know it's fabu surf country but I don't surf. I swim. No thank you.
