The day’s forecast was cloudy in the morning and sunny in the afternoon so we hung around the RV until noon doing chores and researching our next stops and then headed out to the beaches in front of Bandon.
They have a nice trail along the headlands and then stairs every so often down to the beach so we moved the car a few times and did a couple of loops.
Someone had done some huge drawing that were about to get erased by the incoming tide.
The people in the picture very carefully went in and out of the maze without crossing any lines.
There were many rocks and sea stacks on and off shore to look at and explore. One was called Face Rock and is supposed to be a native chief’s daughter who’s face can be seen looking out to sea.
If you can’t see the face, here is an explanation picture.
Here are some more pictures from today.
We walked along the shore, sometimes on the headlands but mostly on the beach.
Back up we go for a short while.
As we drive along the scenic route along the coast, you can see the finest homes/estates so beautifully landscaped. Every day we pass signs stating that we are entering or leaving a Tsunami zone. It is hard for us to comprehend building such beautiful, luxurious homes in an area that will be wiped out with certainty; it is just a matter of time. Everybody believes it will never happen to them.
A fish and chips snack after our walk.
