Pictures of the Oregon Coast, Presidents Day, 2010: Cape Foulweather and Points North

The view from Cape Foulweather: Yaquina Head farthest to the south, Devil's Punchbowl and Otter Crest in the foreground
Cape Foulweather is the first place in Oregon discovered by European explorers: Capt. James Cook spotted it during a raging storm in 1778.

Big breakers at Rocky Creek State Park, looking across Whale Cove -- Just for perspective, that squarish bit of light coloration on the rocks across the cove is a house.

Depoe Bay, World's Smalled Navigable Harbor

The sidewalk allong US-101, Depoe Bay -- I've seen whales within 50 yards of this sidewalk, but the season wasn't right this time.

Weather flag, Depoe Bay -- Points will be awarded to the first person to identify the conditions that day. A hint, it was a balmy 60 and sunny that day -- but it WAS the Oregon Coast.

    Sorry it took me so long to approve, I forgot I had Comment MOderation on.
