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.
Ashley took a bunch of pictures1 and I took a few. Cousins threw Frisbees, flew kites, and everyone ate. We watched a camp fire burn ’till way after dark.
Another great day at the Oregon coast! :-)
