Day Two at the Coast

We spent the first night of our coastal trip at a delightful motel in Seaside, but decided to drive down to Cannon Beach instead of walking the beach at Seaside.  We were rewarded with an unusual view of Haystack Rock bathed in morning light.

That beautiful light came with a cost, though, as the Northeast winds were intense.  I kept my camera lens covered for fear that it would be sandblasted.  I’ve never seen rooster tails quite like this on breaking waves.

By the time we got to Hecata Head Lighthouse the winds had calmed some or were blocked by the coastal mountains, but the sunshine and blue skies remained.  

The Sea Lions at the Sea Lion Caves near Florence were taking advantage of the sun, sunbathing on the rocks outside the cave rather than hiding from the wind and cold in their caves.
