A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Nearly three minutes of surf in the sun

Written February 9th, 2020 by Hasso Hering

It will be Monday soon enough. But before the start of another valley week in February — first fog, possibly freezing, and later rain — take a look at some surf in the sun.

It’s not warm surf, no. It’s surf on the Oregon coast, after all. If you were there on Sunday, and if you happened to take your bike for a short ride up and down 101 north and south of Yachats, you could not help but notice the stiff cold breeze.

And, enjoying the sunshine despite the wind, you might have stood there, gazing at the surf for nearly three minutes through your phone. Like this:

Now, after this little interlude, starting Monday, back to the usual stuff on this blog, such as it is. (hh)

    Relish the “interludes”, few they may be and really enjoy your efforts on the “usual stuff”. At least your points provide a means of dialogue for the opposing voices.. Beats throwing rocks at each other.

    I agree with Jim Engel’s comments. Thank you, Hasso, for the 3-minutes at the coast, as we call it in Oregon. I’m trying to make my vehicle, that has many miles on it, last as long as I do, so I don’t drive to the Coast. (I also have quite a few miles on me.) And, I am keeping down my carbon footprint by not driving far, too. Feel I have to do what I can for this old earth; Trump and his gang sure as hell are shutting down EPA and all emissions and stream protection legislation as fast as they can.
