Another coastal trek

Sunday was a road-trip day, and an awesome day for it. The surf was huge and just booming against the rocks, an amazing sight. This is from the State Park just north of Depoe Bay.

This is Cascade Head, we watched a couple of sufers headed in. The weather was nice that day, not too windy and not raining. A great day for discovering.

Those same surfers a few minutes later... you can see the surf behind them as it completely obliterates a huge rock. The waves were nothing short of spectacular.
This was atop a carport roof in Pacific City. Definitely an eyecatcher. Nuff said.
We came across this little Jack Russell Terrier with a fetish for sticks. I had picked up and inspected that same chunk of wood a few minutes before they came along behind us, and he was carrying it. It was nearly as big as he was, and he eventually left it behind when he got tired of carrying it.
One of the overlooks we stopped at... someone had left these cans of food behind... they are so bulged that they aren't even sitting on their rims. We were careful to not touch them, lest they explode on us. The strange things people do...
You know I love road trips and can't wait to go again!
It's a quiet time of year, time for reflection, planning, and battery-charging.
Happy New Year!
