Day 51 - Muriel O Ponsler | 804 Trail

Excavation practise continues.

Freshly mangled kelp from last night's storm is on the beach.

Ellie considers her options.

She opts for some off leash playtime with 2 year old and very friendly Ceci.

The two new friends take a little break from the action.

Then dive right back in for a lot more fun for dogs.

Meantime, Rex just isn't sure what to do about all of this activity around him.

At the trailhead to 804, the Rules and Regulations, along with a sobering memorial for those that didn't properly respect the sea.

Ah yes, another of the world-famous Oregon Coast Tripod Holes.

The weather folks have issued a high surf advisory for the whole coast. The evidence is right in front of us - we've never seen these rocks so swamped before.

A good reason to think about the Rules and Regulations - on other days, we've been able to walk out on those ledges. Today's high tide and storm surge has them underwater.

The pushmepullya stance.

Another no-go zone.

The Overleaf Lodge sits perched on the edge of all this stormy ocean surge.

The Other Picnic Table at the Other End of the Universe.

Wendy and Ella enjoy the End of the Universe. Funny thing is: we all thought there would be a restaurant here.

The crazy consequences of extreme winds and waters.

Drainage channels are still full and overflowing after yesterdays ridiculous rains.

What's a heron to do - when all the usual perching spots are under water?

We almost get caught by a sneaky wave - for the 3rd time today! But the sea leaves behind some delightful foamy stuff to surround the shiny kelp.
