I love sharing the stunning area of the Central Oregon Coast with my readers.  Taking a break from the main theme of this blog and including some of the sites and happenings at home is healing and informative.  We are so blessed to live in this beautiful area right on the Pacific Ocean.  The tides are especially low right now.  This is the first time since moving to the coast almost 8 years ago that we have been able to venture this far out on our beaches.  Boiler Bay is easily accessible at the northern edge of the City of Depoe Bay, Oregon.  For beach combers this is heaven!  Keep us in mind for your next visit to the Oregon Coast…
