We were over at the BIL & sister's coast place in Waldport Oregon for New Years - for years I've been all snooty-face because they are up on a hill and can't see the beach. OTOH, they are also above the fog and don't have the salt air corroding anything metallic. and THEY have a coast house, which we don't.... Took a little drive out on a spit of land across the Waldport bay that is very built up with houses that DO have an ocean view and snapped these shots. Going to need to re-think the whole ocean view idea. The sand blows in and does this over a matter of a few days when the conditions are right - hear there is a guy with a Bobcat scoop loader that does right well at keeping his family fed by digging out the houses.
