Early this year when we turned down several volunteer opportunities we were forced to ask ourselves, “Where did we really want to volunteer next?” The answer was, we would like to volunteer somewhere on the Oregon Coast during the hot time of summer. At the top of our list was Beaver Creek State Nature Area. Today we experienced the results of following through with what we wanted; we arrived at Beaver Creek State Natural Area.
This is where Beaver Creek flows into the ocean at Ona Beach. This morning it was foggy and 65 degrees, a mile up Beaver Creek is where the Welcome Center is located, and and where we will be staying, it was sunny and 70 degrees. It stayed in the mid 70’s here today and I know the Willamette and Umpqua Valleys were in the 90’s. I think our plan has worked out just fine.
More photos and details tomorrow.
