Even though the Willamette Valley, about 50 miles inland, is generally in the 80's to low 90's in mid-July, the coast is often foggy, or as here, hazy. And cool. With the wind, it's not unfair to describe it as cold. We're looking to the south, toward Beverly Beach. The graceful bridge near the middle of the shoreline is the pedestrian walkway under Route 101 from the day use/camping areas out to the beach access area. The southern stretch, beginning maybe 150 yards south from the bridge, is chock full of fossil shells (see ~middle part of that post for some examples) as well awesome erosional and weathering patterns.
