Coast line

Oregon's dramatic coastline...
Encroaching cliffs threaten seaside homes...
Not far from The Devil's Punchbowl -- mentioned in my previous post -- was a lookout with this magnificent view of Oregon's coastline. The Devil's Punchbowl is the visible point of land that you see in the top part of the photo. For two days in a row we watched local pods of humpback whales feeding near the kelp beds close to shore.

If I lived in one of those homes that you can see, I'd be very nervous. They are very close to those seaside cliffs. I expect that some of them will have to be abandoned at some point in the future.
