Adventuring: 40:40:18 Horsfall Beach

Horsfall Beach
Horsfall Beach is located right here in my hometown area. Growing up it was the place we brought all our out-of-town family and guests. It is an impressive beach with miles of walking and shell collecting. My favorite time to go, which maybe I don't want to share... lol , is first light in the AM. Sometimes the fog is so thick I can barely see the Snowy Plover gathering their food. Other times the skies are blue and the water reflects the happy rays of light. Of course be careful in walking along the beach and keep your eyes open for the sneaker waves! (This is a Fee area).
Old Shipwreck Remains
Shells, Shells, Shells!
The beach connects with the Oregon Dunes. From the main entrance if you head to the right you will come across the ATV tracks mostly from the campers from the nearby sites. If you lead to the left, after a few miles, you get the access from the autos that like to drive out on the sand. Either way it is nice that there is designated people areas, as well as areas that can be accessed by those that enjoy to travel the sand a little faster!
You never know what you'll see!
