Nehalem Bay Oregon Coastal Adventure

Quote of the weekend: "Never confuse a long life with an interesting one."

Lori paddling Nehalem bay
GrizzLee enjoying the paddle towards the town of Wheeler.

This remenant from an ancient forest has provided a platform for young life, including many new trees. Although, elevated from the ground, high tides and rain bring all the moisture and nutrients needed to sustain life.

Paddling up the Nehalem river to the town of Nehalem.

The end of the day was great. We fought incoming tidal curents and WIND! Just as we got to shore, the wind subsided.

We had some friends join us from Vancouver. Rick was wearing his warm clothes and his fiance's sunglasses.

Our camp in the crowded campground.

Lori giving her best pose for the camera.

Of course there is one in every crowd. We found this amusing on full size Ford V8 truck.
Getting groceries for camp.

Yukon Johann and Kamiah decided to re-enact a scene from the movie "Jackass". Good thing there were no hills around.

The coastal highway is very scenic. This shot is looking back towards Cannon Beach.

All-in-all a great weekend. We agreed that next time we would take an extra day. The weather was nice and our time on the coast was too short.

Until next time...
