Yachats to Waldport
April 21, 2003
We started before a -1.2 low tide and headed North from Yachats,
but were met with a strong North wind and rain so we reversed our
course and drove to Waldport so we could have the wind on our backs
and had such a pleasant stroll without rain,
the sand flying ahead of us and a magnificent beach and ocean.
Despite reports of multiple float-finds in recent days, we only
found a decomposing sea-lion, many sail-by-the-wind, drift wood and
We managed a bit of rock climbing by Big Creek, and by the time we
came near Star Creek the tide was up and as a large amount of sand
has shifted all but the last stretch was a bit dicy.
The incredible ancient roots were exposed once more.
It was a joy to share with a group of great Obsidians
(and almost Obsidians), a day of Peach and Joy.
