Roads End

July 3, 2008

Jean Coberly, Jane Hackett, Vi Johnson, and I (Janet Jacobsen) met Dallas Cole at The Inn at Spanish Head the day before the hike. Three of us hiked up to Cascade Head while Dallas and Vi enjoyed a beach walk to view the harbor seals. The next morning at 5:30 a.m. we joined Paul and Barbara Beard and their daughter, Paula, plus seven Lincoln City guests at Road’s End State Park. We were able make our way around the tip of the headland as we looked for marine life in the tide pools and on the exposed rock. We were surrounded by colorful starfish, sea slugs, chitons, mussels, and anemones. We kept a close watch on the tide table stats to make sure we would not be trapped. Back at the park, Barbara and Paul served up a brunch with coffee, pastries, chocolate dipped apricots and strawberries, fruit, cheese, and yogurt. We enjoyed meeting the Lincoln City folks and gained much respect when Dallas recited the poem that she shared at a recitation last summer on a Garrison Keillor hosted Scandinavia Cruise.

“There was a girl named Dallas who peed in the Archbishop’s Challis. I’m sure it was for relief and not out of Protestant malice.” We hope that Barbara and Paul Beard’s Road’s End beach hike at the lowest minus tide becomes an annual event.

Participants were: David Baldock, Barbara Beard (leader), Paul Beard, Paula Beard, Jean Coberly, Dallas Cole, Robert Eaton, Sue Forest, Jane Hackett, Janet Jacobsen (reporter), Paul Jensen, Vi Johnson, Sharon Meniscosy, Mary Westgard and Paul Westgard.
