Sunday Photo Blogging: Yachats


The first stop on my road trip last month was the small city of Yachats (pronounced YAH-hots), Oregon, about four hours from Portland. There is a stretch of rocky coastline here where the surf constantly sprays into the air, and the rocky promontories are dotted with tidepools. Unfortunately I arrived at high tide, so I wasn't able to get to many of the pools, but I did get some good pictures of the rough water. Posted by Picasa

I'd never lived near a tidepool zone until I moved to Beirut. Since then, I've developed quite a fondness for them.

It's hard to explain to Non-Northwesterners that the ocean is something you look at, you don't swim in it! (and to the rest of the world... "Bay Watch" lies - anything south of Santa Cruz is a filthy mess, I have no idea where they shot their clear underwater scenes)

Great shots... I can almost smell the salt air

Hi (I found you through a comment on Slactivist's blog, btw).

I love seeing these. I spent a lot of my growing up years in Oregon and we took all beach vacations out at Yachats...

Thanks for the great photos, and am enjoying looking at some of your previous posts, too.
