We finally made it to the Oregon coast. We stayed in Seaside at the Seashore Inn at the Beach. I loved the wide long beach and Broadway Street. It was much larger and more touristy than I expected. I brought my drone and flew in Seaside, Cannon Beach and Fort Stevens.
Let’s start with the beach. It must be 100 yards wide from the boardwalk to the water. The sand was real sand; if you’ve read a few of my other blogs you understand. Beaches around the world do not always have sand. Most west coast beach are the nice walkable sandy beaches. The water was calm with a few 3 to 4-foot waves. The surfers were catching a few. The sunny weather brought people to the coast. It was an unusually warm dry November day. A light jacket was needed in the morning or dusk. I flew my drone over the beach and over the small waves.

Looking down at the waves was mesmerizing. I like the elevated view from the drone down the beach. A couple other drones showed up through the day. Of course, walking the beach is the best. The sound of the crashing, albeit small waves, was soothing.
The biggest surprise for me was the town. Broadway Street was lined with shops, restaurants, candy stores and a fun zone. I fondly remember playing Frogger for hours in a fun zone.
