Tillamook shoreline

We’re parked about 60 miles south from the Washington border. The coast here offers pretty dramatic differences in short order. Always with the relentless waves…the sound, the spray, the motion, the color.

The ocean surface has been much quieter here than we usually experience south in Trinidad, CA…about half the wave height. Water temperature is about 4 degrees cooler, too.

Still just as blue…
