Hug Point

With more fantastic weather, another trip to the beach was in order. We packed up the family (at least, those who are left at home right now) and headed to Hug Point. We arrived mid-afternoon, shortly before high tide. Cousins arriving before us had already constructed a wall against the advancing tide. We pitched in to help.

One big wave came in, breached the wall, and sent everyone on the beach back to its top edge or even onto the rocks behind. We rebuilt our fortress, bigger, better, and stronger. A couple more waves made futile attempts but failed.

Shortly after sunset, the tide was low. We could easily walk around the points to the beach to the north.

Another great day at the Oregon coast! :-)

    Hi Brent,

    Martha and I were at Hug Point yesterday PM about 3ish, but didn’t get down on the sandy beach or stay very long, as Martha wanted to find a park with walking trails, which we did not find at Hug Point. Instead, we ended up at the park with the giant 200′ Spruce tree that fell down a few years ago and walked the trails there. All in all, a nice day at the beach.
