We took these pictures back in August. I didn't bother posting because I've already posted the same trip twice. I decided to post just the stuff that is new so as to not repeat myself.
We were at the regretful part of our latest trip to Oregon, you know, the part where you have to pack up and go home and back to work. We decided to pull into the Boiler Bay lookout and enjoy the view. I saw a whale right next to the cliff line along the shore below so I ran to get my camera, put on my 400mm lens in hopes of getting a good shot and after about a twenty minute wait, payoff.

And then the whale was gone.

We stayed a night at Devils Lake SP in Lincoln City and found it to be a nice place for being in the middle of a city. Small city that is.

Couldn't resist. Had to eat at the tourist trap.

Love those Oregon Beaches.

Interesting dead weathered tree at the RV dump but can't remember the name of the SP sorry.

Kelli loves to take pictures of old barns even if she barely grabs the camera in time and frames it against the camper jack.

This is better.

One more blur for the road.

Chipmunks are very interesting. Charlie refers to them as "Code 1 Rodent Alerts".

This was at a nice little USFS CG we spent two days at because it was so peaceful and relaxing.

Right out our door plus a few steps.

Kelli just loves her Charlie.

Beautiful trees in this CG.

We have been lucky to see whales along the coast before but this was the best we've had for photos.
Really hoping for bad weather and wind next weekend so I can go to the coast and storm watch. We had a great storm this weekend but I couldn't get out to enjoy it.

Old barns and storms. They really don't go together unless you're looking for both of 'em. I can just imagine you running to get the camera when the whale showed up.
Thanks for posting the report.

Great pictures. That would be a thrill to be in an inflatable boat next to a whale(s)...

Oh man that is depressing. I grew up in Lincoln City, lived outside of Portland for years. I took this damn job in Kentucky two years ago, can't wait to move on and get back home!

Nice pictures on your page. I know a little about your vantage point near Tillamook. Just a quick drop in. As good as the pictures are, it's still not the same as being there. You're lucky to have seen it. Thanks for the picture link suggestions. I'll check then out.

Whale watching, SW Washington Coast.
Other good travel info at this link.


In the San Juan Islands, there are Killer Whales all year. Oregon coast is easier to get to than Washington coast, Especially the NW Washington coast. In the NW area you would probably want to spend time in the Olympic Mtns. Look me up when you get closer to leaving and if you have any other questions, I'll try to give you some pointers.

Thanks Weymard.
Hope the strike situations in France aren't effecting you.
Charlie is a pretty good cat. When we first got him at 2 years old. He was wild and unapproachable. He was in a home situation that wasn't working for him. It took a full month before we were able to touch him. With a lot of patience, he has become one of the best mannered cats I've ever had.
Take care, J&K
