I’ve had a lack of cyber presence lately due to being on vacation – yeah for the Oregon Coast with nothing to do! I do recommend the lovely city of Yachats, OR. I stayed there at a beach house with my folks, which was super close to the sand and surf and also within walking distance to my favorite part of Yachats – the rocks! Yachats has this great section of volcanic rock along the coastline that are these huge barnacle covered boulders perfect for climbing and spelunking. Primo tide pools for sea life viewing and great little pockets of washed up beach stuff for combing. I came away with a whole bag of agates! Now I just got to figure out what to do with them as well as the bag I brought home from my visit two years ago… sigh. Agates anyone?
