Why you should visit the Oregon Coast this week.

Sunset -- Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon

In a nutshell, because when there's an off-shore airflow like now its clear and warm! Actually the weather is forecast good the next couple days, Thursday it'll start clouding up and the balance of the week is rain.

Portland was cold and windy, basically not much fun to be out and about. Contrasting that, the coast was about 65 degrees and only a light breeze, a light sweater was perfect. Consider this, much of August was actually colder!

Not sure what more there is to say, ate at Moe's, went to Ecola State Park, and back to the beach for sunset. It was my first time at Ecola, a nice place and the views are wonderful (see below). There's Elk droppings all over the grass near the parking area so watch for them if you're there at sunrise or sunset. Could make for a nice photo op!
