A Winter Surf
Oregonians love their beaches during the winter. Where in summer, beach towns might be crowded with people from all over, in the winter, it's mostly natives who go to see the surf at its most spectacular. It's easy to get motels and the roads aren't particularly crowded.
Sunday was one of those perfect days with the weather changing constantly from sunshine to rainstorms with snowflakes mixed in.
Don't like the weather for photos? Wait five minutes. The breakers were huge and surged ashore with that power only the ocean has. It was particularly nice to not have it be windy. It was cold though but that didn't keep people inside their cars.
