Was up on Cape Meares near the lighthouse today at the north platform. Remembered to bring my camera besides the binocs. This is the looking view north from the north platform. Near the two patches of dirt in the upper right hand corner on the far cliff is a peregrine falcon nest with 4 chicks.
Looking down to the Pacific, the closest toe of the cliff in the center foreground is where the black oystercatcher (BLOY) nest is believed to be. Saw one BLOY in the same area today that we saw two last week - just above the black band..
Waves swirling around the small island rocks. The two larger rock islands in the background have bird and sea lion populations

Looking south - the mouth of Netarts Bay. The 'finger' of Cape Lookout is jutting almost completely across the horizon. The entrance to Netarts Bay is almost directly in front of Cape Lookout's mt from this angle.
Stopped and had a latte at Brewin' In The Wind in Oceanside. Came back home and putzed around the house instead of doing the stocking up grocery shopping - that will have get done tomorrow. Today is my day off and I'm enjoying the off.
You can click on any of the photos to see them full sized. Much more detail is evident when full size.
