Although I am a sucker for a good paddle, I must admit, dawn at Yaquina Head was a real treat, despite not being on the water. The tide pools, rainbow horizon, sea lions, and friendly/knowledgable staff at the BLM Outstanding Natural Area where really remarkable. I am so jealous my best friend, Allison Ginn, who normally oversees recreation management in NE Wyoming, has the opportunity for a short detail as Site Manager at Yaquina Head. What a job!
Some of the highlights also included:
– Volunteering as an usher in order to see the Shifty Sailors performance at the Newport Community Theauter
– Feeling the prickly tentacles of a Sea Anemone
– The lush greenery of the valley which enveloped the banks of our paddle excursions
– Being there for Ally’s first SUP tour, may there be many more to come…
