The Oregon Central Coast is delightful in June!

Today I bring you a photo of the Siletz Bay, located at the Historic Taft District. Taft is at the south end of Lincoln City. To the left of this spot is Mo's Restaurant, famous for great clam chowder and other delectable seafood entrees. If you want to get an ice cream, go across the street to Eleanor's Undertow, a favorite with kids as they have fun games such as pinball and air hockey. I often stop in Taft during my real estate appointments to enjoy a 20 minute vacation with my lunch.


On a day like this, many people like to collect piles of wood for a beach bonfire in the evening. Driftwood on the beach is plentiful, it has a distinct aroma of summer fun. On any given summer evening, you might see a dozen of these bonfires burning, surrounded by families toasting marshmallows and hotdogs on long skewers.

Hope you enjoyed your little virtual vacation!

Finding driftwood on the beach and having a bonfire sounds like fun!  And roasting marshmallows?  YUM!  Sounds like an interesting area.

I love the smell driftwood produces when it burns. Not sure why, but there is something about it that reminds me of my childhood and camping with my parents.

Barbara -- great photo -- I can almost smell the sea and taste the clam chowder.
