Science, Sands and Stones
Virtual Tour of Seaside, Oregon Coast
On this part of the beach, the sands slowly become more covered in cobblestones, eventually ending up at the "cove" area and Ave. U., where it's mostly these medium-sized, polished stones.
This area, needless to say, is not as much fun to walk on barefoot, although there are stretches relatively free of the bumpy and uncomfortable rocks.
