Yesterday, we took a day trip over to the coast and spent some time at the beach just north of Bandon. There is a stretch of beach which is just desolate, no houses, no state park regulations, where we let the dogs run. They had a blast. At one point they came upon a sea lion who was on the beach, reclining in the creek near the beach. It scared Samson half to death and he came running back to me with his ears all laid back. Sea lions can be pretty dangerous, but this one, we think, was on it’s last…er….
leg flipper. We also found one that had died not too far away. The weather was gorgeous, fairly warm and sunny, much better than our visit in the summer which was cool and foggy.
