After lunch, we finally headed out to the park. Our destination was the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. Arriving when we did, we had about two hours to kill until high tide (which is the best time to see Thor's Well and Devil's Churn). We decided to take the walk out to see the Silent Sentinel of the Suislaw, a 600-year-old spruce.
We then made our way out to Thor's Well, just before high tide. There was a great churn further south of the Well, which had an interesting geyser-like spout when the ocean hit it properly. (I hope the video works...)
Thor's Well is hard to wrap your head around. It looks like there's a giant hole in the rock, and maybe in the ocean itself. The water that manages to get in there just seems to fall out of the bottom.
|Is this where we get onto the Rainbow Bridge?|
There are some cool tide pools between Thor's Well and Devil's Churn, as well as some shaded walk through the woods.

|"What's that?" asks Garrett.|
|"I think it's the Pacific Ocean." I reply.|
As we finished eating, a group of guys from the Cool Corvette Convention (CCC) started arriving. No pics, unfortunately, but the first two license plates we read were "AT0M1C" and "1962FULE". Fearing a movie scene where the elites kicked all the commoners out, we made a hasty exit.
Tomorrow, it looks like it's going to be rainy again. Again, I have to question what kind of lies weather.com has been spreading. My guess is that they are in collusion with Oregon to get people to come out here near the end of summer with the lure of cool weather sans rain, and then let Oregon dump the sky on them.
