We are in Charleston, OR.
I took an early morning drive to grab my required, 44oz Diet Coke. The scenery around this small, working fishing town is spectacular. I know where I will be at Sunset with my Nikon in hand.
We drove up to Reedsport and Winchester Bay. Both are in the heart of the open areas of the Oregon Dunes Recreation Area. I also spent time in Charleston harbor and out to Cape Arago during the late afternoon and early evening hours.
ATV's on the beach!!! Just north of Coos Bay.

Low tide near the Charleston Municipal Dock as a fishing boat and fishermen unload their catch.
At Cape Arago, looking north up the coast. The Cape Arago Lighthouse can barely be seen in the photo.

Whenever we find a great local eatery we will report! Today, we had lunch at Crabby's Cafe in Winchester Bay, OR. I had a fresh Cod Melt Sandwich and the fish was as light and delicate as fresh Opah in Hawaii.
