We awoke in Yachats to a gray, gray day. Amazingly, it was our first overcast day in the trip so far.
Undeterred, we had breakfast: fish tacos. Hey, why not? We then set out to roam the town.
First up was hitting the beach.
Then we roamed the trails around town. Yachats trails are interesting in that there are a number of them that wander through town. They are (fairly) well marked and go up and down the hills as well as through the town’s streets.
We did the hills first. Up, and up, and up some more! These trails started on the streets and then cut up the hillside between houses. Some of one trail we followed was simply a trail while other parts had been laid out as steps. Some people along the trail took great care to make the area welcoming and beautiful.
We then went down, down, down into the town. Have you noticed that everything along the coast is up and down? Even our second floor room!
In town we popped into the local library and also found a small wetlands area.
By this time the gray day had turned into a light drizzle, but we kept on.
We visited the Devil’s Churn and a covered bridge.
Eventually, we wore out and got chilly and a bit too damp, so we headed back to our sweet room and watched late afternoon turn to evening and sunset.
The next morning, south again!
