It's remarkable that in 350+ posts over four years, I have none from Oregon! Unfortunately, this weekend's brief excursion did not lend itself to much rigorous beach exploration, but I decided to throw in a few coastal shots just to show we were there for a few hours on Sunday morning.
The photos capture the basic theme of Oregon's coast - broad sandy beaches and high rocky headlands. It also suggests that despite Oregon's generally enlightened and public-minded view of its beaches, the state has still left room for some mistakes and poor judgment.
Besides the Columbia River bridge in Astoria, the shots include the beach at Seaside, Tillamook Head, Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, and Rockaway Beach.
