Agate Beach ~ Tsunami Dock

Me and My Best Friend ~ For Life

I can't believe we finally got away from home for a weekend!  Here we are at Newport, Oregon.  We made it down to Agate Beach where the dock that washed ashore from the Tsunami in Japan arrived.  There were people all over and around, leaving and arriving to take a look at this large dock. 

I have to say, it was amazing to think of this dock making it all this way across the ocean and landing here in Oregon without one sighting from an aircraft or ship.  This thing is large, maybe 6.5' to 7' tall and long.  On the other hand, if you think about how vast the ocean is, the dock is small in comparison. 

The dock has since been worked on for removal and must be gone now.  It sure brought hundreds of people to the beach.
