We have seen some very extreme weather on the Oregon Coast over the past few days with everything from flooding to extremely high waves. Yesterday 12/11 it was reported to us that the beaches had been closed in Lincoln City because of the extreme waves and debris being tossed about. At our Lincoln City Beach Retreats condos the property management has also closed our direct access to the beaches for everyone’s safety. These are pictures taken from the property. When the weather breaks it will be fun exploring around the driftwood (CAUTION: Driftwood is not stable and it is extremely heavy and can move at the slightest touch… many people are injured every year by shifting driftwood… USE Caution)
Now is a great time to stay indoors and experience the sheer power of the Pacific. Both of our vacation rental condos are 3rd floor units with an absolutely unobstructed view. Book your stay now and enjoy the fabulous show directed by mother nature from the comfort and warmth of your oceanfront rental.
As a side note December/January are months when you can view the whale migrations. When there isn’t a storm brewing be sure to be watching for the whales, sea birds, and other ocean life that will on occasion pass us by. I also find it fun to watch the fishing boats and sometimes they are close enough you can break out the binoculars and see onto the decks of the boats. Don’t forget as well that winter season is the time for Lincoln City’s Finder’s Keepers. If you find one of the art glass float out on the beach it is yours to keep.
