Westport in spring

Just got back from a quick trip to the ocean. Considering the unrelenting snow dumps in the mountains I expected the weather to be nasty. In fact, I’d heard it was snowing on the coast in Oregon earlier this week so I was hoping to see some white beaches.

However, with the exception of a stiff wind, the weather in Westport was quite pleasant. At least for the hour I spent there. Surprisingly I saw only one surfer at the jetty riding some fairly sweet waves.

While I didn’t see any snow on the beach, by dinner time I was teaching my son how to start a fire in the rain. Good enough.

A windy but lovely day at Westport …

… and on the beach south of Grayland.

Volunteers are heading to the coast this weekend to clean the beaches of trash like this. If you want to participate just show up at your favorite beach Saturday morning.
