South Jetty Road - Siltcoos and Honeyman Dunes

February 10, 1980

After setting up our car shuttle, we began our walk at the first beach parking lot on the Siuslaw South Jetty Road, heading south to the Siltcoos Outlet, about 6 miles on the beach. It was one of those hard-to-believe winter days when everything seemed to go just right. The tide was outgoing, the sun was shining, the ocean waves were spectacular, crab fishing boats were close inshore, and the beach was protected from the east wind by the foredunes. Only one small stream, easily negotiated, — crossed the beach, and motorized traffic was minimal.

Lunch in the warm sun was so relaxing that many people found the prone position preferable to the upright. And some were a little slow at attaining the latter when it was time to move on. But we made it on to the Siltcoos where we picked up our cars and drove to Honeyman Park. A brisk couple of miles in the dunes for the energetic, and more sunning for the others added the final touch to the day.

Walkers were Tom Brinton, John Cecil, Angela Colk, Bob Foster, Joanne Haines, Mary Hansen, Helene Johnston, Rachael Major, Jerry Nelson, Robin Steussy, Merle Traudt, Dorothy Turner, Paula Vehrs, Marcia Wright, and Betty Legris (leader).
