Default Oregon, The Quiet Side.

Early morning before the sun came out from under the fog.

A nice roadside park with a small river flowing to the sea.

For those who don't know "All" the beaches along the Oregon coast are public. No-one owns beachfront land. So there are public access points and picnic spot all the way down.

This is one of the Peaceful part of Pacific Oregon

Back along the river and down to the haunted lighthouse station at Heceta Head.

Dune country is exceptional. Monster sand dunes cover squre miles of the coastal range. Where deer and other amimals live. 4 wheelers go to rip the dunes up and kids ski down. When we lived there in Florence the high school coach would run the team up the soft sand for fitness training.

We knew where there were lakes among the dunes that warmed up in the summer. Running down the dunes and into the water was more fun.

They're like that in Maryland and Delaware as well. There are some public access points with public toilets and bath houses, that charge for admission in the summer to offset the maintenance costs. But you can walk anywhere along the beach. I thought that was true anywhere but apparently not.

Well done. Really nice shots. I have not been to that part of Oregon, and your shots have impressed me as an interesting place for a future visit.
