One of our favorite low tide walks is from 72nd street to end of “Knob Hill”.
Our first year here, we walked it 3-4 times a week. Now we choose a different beach access each day to spice things up. This section seems to hold the most mystery and wildlife. Love seeing the waterfalls.
At the end Nate found a beach ball floating around. The 25+ mph winds kept lifting it up and bouncing it on the rocks.
If the tide is low enough, the brave and tide/current aware may hike around the tip to what we like to call Mystery Beach. With hubby’s broken shoulder we hung back, and the water wasn’t quite low enough to go easily, so Nate and I just peeked.
On the way back, we saw a flock of gulls pecking at a log like crazy.
Upon closer observation – we discovered they had found their own sushi bar, probably washed up from Japan.
Hubby held up one of the invasive species for me to observe.
I chose to just hold the camera.

Never know what low tide on the Oregon Coast will reveal! High winds, hail, and a downpour of rain – yet always worth the walk!
