Oceanside, Oregon: Beauty and Few Distractions

“Oceanside, Oregon: Beauty and Few Distractions” by Joan Y. Edwards

See photos of views at Oceanside, Oregon in July, 2010.

Dear Readers,

I really enjoyed my trip to Oceanside, Oregon. The views were beautiful from the Oceanside Inn.
The weather surprised me. On Sunday when I arrived, it was in the 80’s. On Thursday it seemed like it was in the 40’s and 50’s. I wore a sweater and two jackets. It was very windy about 30 mph winds.

I had a good time in spite of it being chilly. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to go. Cell phones only worked on the end of the porch. Internet stayed on a few minutes only, one or two days. Then it stayed on without disconnecting me.

The motels have no land line phones in the rooms. They don’t give you service except towels unless you can catch them or write them notes. Or ask them ahead of time and tell them you need service every day.

On the plus side, the views were spectacular. It was very relaxing.
It’s a hiker’s haven. You can hike up to the top of a cliff where there are many homes with views that include the whole cove and rooftops of homes below you.

There’s a tunnel that you can walk through in the mound closest to shore.
There are approximately three feet wide spreads of rocks between the land and the sand. Part of the sand has a black tint to it. A few people used surfboards when it was warm enough. People tried to out beat the wind and keep their kites soaring, but they could only do it for 10 seconds and the kites went down.

There were not many seagulls. I only saw sixteen to twenty of them.

The high tides and low tides left interesting designs of shadows on the sand.

The sunsets were beautiful when the clouds and mists allowed you to see them.
One night I saw the moon and a star.

If you need to go to a place without many distractions, Oceanside, Oregon is the place to go.

Thanks for reading. Please let me know a topic you’d like for me to write about.

Do something fun right now. You deserve it.

  1. Joan,

    Lovely get-away. A writer’s paradise until he/she wants internet connection.

    • Dear Linda, Thanks for your humorous comment. Many times we say if there were no interruptions we could get more writing done. Sometimes it’s the interruptions of the mind and unable to focus that seems to keeps us from our writing. Happy writing!
