Cape Perpetua Adventures

In late March we made a pleasant visit to the Oregon Coast, staying at the SeaQuest Inn bed-and-breakfast near Yachats.

On our third day we finally got some sunshine. I was hoping for some good light for photographs.

Cape Perpetua was our main stop of the day. There was a fine visitor center where we joined the crowd looking for migrating whales. We didn’t spot any.

We entertained ourselves by taking two hikes in the area. The first was to a a 600-year old giant Sitka Spruce, 185 feet tall with a circumference of 40 feet.

Then we hiked to a rock shelter at the top of the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

The Oregon Coast always has many surprises for its visitors.
