Crashing Cape Kiwanda [explore 9/22/10]

Boring afternoon light...decent wave action though. Cape Kiwanda/Pacific City is still, hands down, my favorite bit of coastline.

As a side note, the Pelican Pub and Brewery which is about a half-mile away from these cliffs is quite excellent (as is the clam chowder). However, I discovered that regardless of how truly delicious Grand Cru de Pelican (a very nice Belgian strong dark ale with particularly nice, lingering caramel undertones...the carbonation was quite awesome as well...) is, sufficient quantities made the hike out to these cliffs a bit more interesting than I normally prefer. So, yes, I took this picture while under the influence of alcohol.

    Some of the greatest art ever made was under the influence, ask Mozart.

    Very nice. Next time you're in Oregon, drop me a line and I'll show you some sights out on the east side. If you haven't been on this side of the state before, you haven't seen the half of it. :-)

    So that is why the foreground is blurred. It's that Belgian beer.

    Great spot and great shot.
