(Oregon Coast) – Did you know the lifespan of some sea and shoreline dwellers is twice as long as yours? Did you know the wacky tales of famous folk who hung out in Yachats in the '70s? Or where is the seriously ghostly Oregon ghost town? (Above: Landmark Restaurant and Lounge in early 2000s).

This week’s installment of freaky Oregon coast facts is another odd ride along the coast and through the annals of knowledge – amusing, offbeat or simply wowing. You’ll discover what you may find in Oregon coast tide pools and which things may be edible or make you fall and crack your head. There’s chucklers about a car sticking out of the back of a restaurant, a Sea Lion wandering the streets of the north coast and why no starfish will ever be accused of Type A behavior.

The Weird Wonders of Oregon Coast Tide Pools

Tiffany Boothe of the Seaside Aquarium went exploring coastal tide pools one day and took note of the massive variety of life forms to be discovered, as well as talked about what sort of sea goo may make you slip and fall while checking out these colonies of wonders yourself.



The Ghost of a Ghost Town: Bayocean


A few buildings were saved and moved to Cape Meares. The community gathering place there is the former school and church from the old resort. There is some talk you may occasionally find part of a structure in the form of a chunk of concrete or metal somewhere in the dunes.

That’s all that is left of a true ghost town. Oregon Coast Lodgings in these areas - Where to eat - Maps - Virtual Tours
