Jetty Surge

1 Mar


The king tide surged through the mouth of the Coquille river for an up close look at wave action.

The retreating tide left a soft mirror surface to reflect

This view is from Bandon’s South Jetty up the river toward Old Town. The tide was receding, exposing the mud flats.

A light coastal mist shrouded the beach homes on the hill above the creek mouth and sent a diffused light to sparkle on the sand patterns left from the last high tide.
