The Difference A Few Hours Can Make

We went to the Cove again today about noon and could hardly see past the end of the parking lot.

We got a lot of laughs watching the larger brown dog. It looked like he was digging for clams. He would dig, then run around in a circle then dig again... we watched him do this for a good half hour.

Look closely below the grey and you can see blue. We started seeing this about 2:00PM

By  three, Joe was out of the car and sitting in one of our camp chairs, enjoying the sun with a little breeze.

I wonder if this guy thinks he's the police or one of the other public workers.

I also was wondering if these guys come out here every day to get their supper.........

We didn't stay there for the sunset, but the sun glistening on the water was also beautiful.

Views of Seaside

Transportation varies in Seaside

The Turnaround at Seaside, Oregon, is designed as the official end of the Lewis and Clark Trail. In 1990, a bronze statue of Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Seaman,  was installed facing the ocean at the west end of Broadway at the Turnaround on the center of the Prom. The monument commemorates the 18 month, 4,000 journey from Saint Louis to the Oregon Coast ( by sculptorStanley Wanlass).

Beautiful weather on the coast brings out crowds of people.

Our favorite place to enjoy the ocean is at the Cove at the South end of Seaside

Surfers and  kite flying 

lots of seagulls just waiting to be fed. (unlike the ducks and geese, they do not like cracked corn) 
Ocean fishing

Love this multi colored boulder. I would think it's color comes from different minerals? 

And across from the boulder, beautiful tall grass

Where we have called "home" for the last four days. It was very convenient, close to the horseshoe pits, pickleball courts, pool tables and the indoor swimming pool.
