2013

January 17, 2013 - rubygoes
A perfect day at the beach. Miles 125 and 126 were wide and appeared swept clean at low tide. Walking along the bluff, however, there was a great deal of plastic debris, mostly bottles and jugs....

September 9, 2012 - rubygoes
Miles 124 and 125 were much cleaner than usual. There was an absence of any rope or nets. Orange Styrofoam chunks were plentiful, as were aqua blue Styrofoam pieces, most approx. 1x1' size. Not...

This was an eventful Coast Watch excursion. The1945 wreck of the George Olsen was still visible,due to little storm activity at the time of myvisit on 12/17. Other than two very large treetrunks...

9/19 was spectacularly beautiful, perfect for a Coast Watch report. No other people on the beach. I am puzzled by thousands of tiny jellyfish that ride up onto the beach with every wave. They...

June 20 was an absolutely beautiful day with a very low tide that made riding there on the hard sand a joy. And I had the beach to myself...not another soul to be seen. ATV tracks in the Snowy...

Miles 124 and 125, those just north of the north jetty on Coos Bay, must certainly retain their title of the filthiest miles in Oregon. Litter pick up here is like trying to drain the ocean with a...
May 6, 2010 - rubygoes
May 6th was as perfect a day as Nature can provide for enjoying our beautiful Oregon Coastline: cobalt blue sea, waves to 3", picture perfect waves crashing into blazingly brilliant white surf, all...
March 7, 2010 - rubygoes
The wreck of the George Olson, that 2008 smash sensation, lay covered up last year, but now it's back. Not too impressive, but there. Its one visible side stands 4' at the bow, 2' at the stern....

2009

December 19, 2009 - rubygoes
12/19 was supposed to be stormy, but instead gave us a warm 56 high temp. and a partially sunnyday. Although the tide was outgoing, the surf wasso high that I did not risk exploring all of 126.My...
