It's hard not to have a great time on the Oregon Coast any time of year.

Peter and I believed the KVAL weatherwoman’s prediction for a sunny Saturday at the beach–suckered again! But it’s hard not to have a great time on the Oregon Coast any time of year.

We poked around Old Town, had a crab cocktail at the Krab Kettle, and wandered north to our favorite stretch of surf–Bob Beach.

Peter wrote a poem while I wandered with i-Pad, taking videos and photographs. When we got home, we combined our efforts to make this one minute digital poetry story.

We went on up to Yachats, played around at Toad Hall,

then took pictures at Yachats State Park, which is right in town. We didn’t know it, but soon after we pulled out, something a whole lot more exciting than seagulls in the wind happened:

“What started out as an altercation between a couple at the Underground in Yachats, wound up with a car in the surf off SW 2nd Street in Yachats Saturday evening. Witness accounts say that the couple continued their loud altercation outside the bar. The woman got in her car and roared down SW 2nd, crossed over the lawn at SW 2nd and Ocean View (barely missing another car), hit the curb, was sent airborne for at least 150 feet, crashing down between some huge boulders way out on the beach.”

  • What a great day! Lisle and I went kayaking in Portland the same day! Do you ever get the seafood chowder at Webers in Florence? Yum!
