Central Oregon Coast

Halloween has finally arrived and so I will end my Oregon series with this final picture. It is a Green Flash sunset series taken in Yachats. So go out tonight and see if you can see a Green Flash sunset before the trick-or-treaters arrive.

In keeping with the Halloween theme - Here is a ghoulish beer I found on this trip. It was to die for!

Central Oregon Coast

Whenever I go to the coast I look for interesting driftwood. This one is appropriate with Halloween approaching. This driftwood reminded me of "The Scream" by Edvard Munch.

Central Oregon Coast

We climbed up to the West Shelter on the top of Cape Perputula. See the story about More Mud Bud and how this was built. The lovely lady in this picture is my partner in crime - Ellie.

Central Oregon Coast

While most of the Sea Lions were crowded on every exposed rock this one had this rock all to him/herself.

Central Oregon Coast

The Oregon coast has a large population of the endangered Steller Sea Lion (Eumetopias jubatus) also known as the Northern Sea Lion. It is the sole member of the genus Eumetopias and the largest of the eared seals (Otariidae). Among pinnipeds, it is inferior in size only to the walrus and the two elephant seals. The species is named for the naturalist Georg Wilhelm Steller who first described them in 1741. Females are much smaller at about 600 lbs while males top the scales at 2500 lbs! Here is a bad boy in the middle of his harem.

San Diego Sunrise

It has often been said that the best camera is the one you have on you. That is best illustrated with this sunrise picture I took on today's morning walk. It was shot with the camera in my iPhone. Thank You Steve Jobs!

The sign said "Stay off rocks! Several fatalities have occurred here." Works for me!

It was fun watching Neptune come out of the ocean and crash on the rocky shore. Can you see his head and arms?
