We have continued to have rain showers. Yesterday the sun came out a few times, but the dark cloudy sky inevitably always produced more rain. We drove into Depo Bay for lunch yesterday. Coming into that area we noticed that waves were splashing up as far as the road and even giving cars a good spray of ocean water as they drove past. The ocean has been churning away because of the strong winds. Even way off into the distance we could see very high waves. It has been quite awesome viewing such a powerful force of nature, something which is unique for me.Closer up at the shoreline the ocean appears very dark and dirty. The force of the waves has been stirring the ocean floor and bringing up dirt and debris. Maybe the picture of the ocean below can give you an idea of what I am talking about. Notice the dark lines on the waves.
