Beach-Waldport to Yachats

March 29, 1981

The weather at the parking lot agreed with the forecast for the day . . . 100% “chance” of showers. An Obsidian ski group pointed out that snow in the Cascades would be preferable to rain on the coast. We said we’d take our “chances” even if 100%. There was steady rain from Eugene to Waldport. The rain and wind picked up tempo as we donned raingear and headed south on the beach (on an outgoing tide.) By lunch time, midway down the beach, the rain and wind subsided and our spirits picked up as sun and blue sky became the order of the afternoon. The leader’s veiled “promise” to see migrating whales heading north did not materialize. However, some ducks in poor formation were sighted heading north so all was not for naught. There was time to explore the tide pools just north of Yachats while we looked for and found our shuttle car at the Adobe parking lot. On the return drive to Eugene, one car sighted 12 rainbows, a new “car record” for an Obsidian outing. Soggy, but good-natured hikers were Dallas and Jack Cole, Fran Gnose, Dave and Marcia Guekes, Margaret Hadaway, Roger Hine, Jeanie Holmes, Mary Keenan, Dick Loescher, Elsie Peck, Ann and Davin Strother, Chris Rhoades, Kate Weindt, Merle Traudt & leader Joe Lowry.
