Coos Bay was our last stop on Oregon’s coast. As I write this, we are already floating on California waters. With two states on our wake, we have now California’s long stretch of coast to cover.
The weather has been playing its cards, and celebrated the onset of Autumn on Tuesday by throwing a set of two cold fronts to drench the Pacific Northwest. As NOAA put it on their Weather Outlook: “THE FIRST BIG SURF OF THE SEASON WILL ARRIVE ON AREA BEACHES TODAY”. In fact, I have been checking real time data from weather buoys out there, and the swell is ranging (or should I say “raging”) between a respectable 15ft and a disturbing 20ft in some areas. Needless to say, I already advised the marina’s office that we will be extending our stay 🙂
So, here we are tucked in Pesto’s cabin on a cold and rainy day in Crescent City’s harbor district marina, waiting for a new weather window to continue our march south.
I thought I would use the time to post a photographic update on our days in Coos Bay, and the passage to here.
