A wind from the North quickly prompted us to begin the hike at Patterson State Park and walk south to Yachats. We were happy to have Joan and John Skarda from Florence join us for a sunny day on the beach. We started hiking at 11:00, completing the hike around 2:10. Low tide was at 1:15pm. We celebrated Barbara Norregaard’s birthday by writing a big 60 in the sand. She said," I couldn't have asked for a better place or group of people to spend a milestone birthday with." If you would like to try this hike, go at low tide and wear shoes that don’t have to be removed for the many stream crossings. Also there are only two restrooms (Tillicum and Beachside campgrounds), closer to Waldport than Yachats.Members: Janet Jacobsen, Patricia Mac Afee, Patricia Esch, Chuck Harpham, Barbara Norregaard, Barbara Aten, Moshe Rapaport. Nonmembers: Mei-Yueh Crowell, Bill Crowell, Joan Skarda, John Skarda.
