Nice day at the coast with this silly crew. Thanks for biking there boys so we had an excuse to get away and feel the sand between our toes. A little chilly, but in Oregon I wouldn’t expect anything less 🌊🌥🐾 #pacificcity
I finally got a picture while I’m holding both my babies... and I’m not taking the photo! The last time I remember getting this photographed was when they were 5 weeks old! .
was able to come over and take the girls to play on the beach for the first time! We had so much fun!
Today was a wonderful celebration of marriage for Don and Katie who chose to have a Sand Ceremony with their 6 children. Each child wrote a unique quality that they bring to the family on a sand dollar. The family then poured 8 different colors of sand into the vase, adding their sand dollars between each layer, representing the joining of two families in love.

Mile 171 | Heceta Beach | Dick Mason, an active CoastWatch volunteer, recently submitted a very thorough report. He stated, “There is an unusually large die-off of Mole crabs (Emerita analoga) all along the mile, except for the very southern end of the mile near the Siuslaw River North Jetty "lagoon". Rarely seen until just a few years ago on Heceta Beach, they now seem to be all over. I don't know if these crabs shed their exterior shells like Dungeness crabs, so I tried to disassemble a few only to find they still had the soft inner tissues inside including one crab who was still alive and highly offended by my efforts to take him apart.” To read his full report visit: https://oregonshores.org/mile-171-heceta-beach-south-almost-north-jetty-april-23-2018
Note: Yes, Dick, Mole Crabs do molt.

Various species of phytoplankton are known to bioluminescence, and their lights can be seen in oceans all around the world, even right here off the Oregon coast. The most common type of marine bioluminescence is generated by phytoplankton known as dinoflagellates. If you ever get a chance to see it in person, it will take your breath away.

The shore was full of bees, flying peacefully. Went here because I heard it was a nude beach. Ya boi was ready to show The D, but when I arrived I saw two old dudes, bees everywhere, and one lady. It was a trap. #beReckless #teamElvis
