The Oregon Coast

Oregon's number one tourist destination

The Oregon Coast is one of my favorite places to visit. Even if I wasn't a photographer I'd be spending time here. I must like it, I've written [two books]( http://www.barbeephoto.com/books) about it.
Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors vacation along the Oregon coast. They come in summer, they come in winter. In fact, the coast is Oregon’s number one tourist destination. Hundreds of miles of sandy beaches and rugged coastlines, outstanding natural beauty, great local seafood, charming towns, and endless recreation opportunities draw visitors from all over the world.

These pictures are presented in roughly geographical order, north to south. Starting in Astoria in the north and ending in Brookings in the south.
