March 28, 1999
The nine of us went to the coast the day after the helpful volunteers had picked up
all the beaches.
They missed the massive log jams tossed up by the sea around Cape Perpetua.
A storm was coming in with gale warnings posted for the evening.
We arrived with high tide and higher waves crashing and spurting in fountains.
After a walk along the breaking waves we hiked up the car road, which is closed to cars,
to the viewpoint.
The sea was ripped by white caps all the way to the angry clouds gathering above the horizon.
The howling wind and driven rain at the top encouraged us down and home.
The companions were Royal & Marilyn Murdock (leaders), Hal Brown, Dana Furgarson,
Janet Hall, Teresa Ladd, Sig Otto, Lucille Peterson and Ivan Vandeberg.
