Bayocean, the "Silver Beach"

Once the site of a resort, the development that was Bayocean was reclaimed by the sea.  Located at the south entrance to Tillamook Bay, north of and at the foot of Cape Meares, it's a beach we like to visit for its beauty.
 When we first "discovered" it, many of the logs lying on the beach were still standing as dead snags, silvered by the sun and the salt air. The combination of the trees and the driftwood and the rocks caused me to name it the "Silver Beach" You can still see some of that today. 






 We looked for heart rocks.  Found some!

  2. Very lovely! In one photo, it almost looked like a dead cattle skull, the type popular in 'southwest' looks/decor. :)

  8. Absolutely gorgeous beach. I love the breaking of the waves in the water behind the driftwood. And those are great heart rocks, Linda. :-)

  10. We're in Port Orford and I've been walking the beach by our campsite daily. I've been picking up agates...or what I think are agates. I really have no idea what I'm looking for; I pick up anything that I like. I'll have to start looking for heart rocks. We are blessed in the Pacific northwest to have such beautiful beaches with easy public access.

  11. What has more visual appeal than driftwood? Not much.

  12. Such a nice beach! No remnants of the resort to be seen? When the sea reclaims something, it does a thorough job!
