There is no place more beautiful than the ocean beaches, storm watching is fabulous, beach combing after a storm might yield you some real treasures! I've lived & worked in Long Beach, Washington, we go there 2 or 3 times a year for the fresh air, to watch & hear the breakers coming in. West Port is also great! Been there when the waves were breaking over the rocks, scary but fascinating! The Oregon Coast is our favorite place to go, it's beauty just can't be paralled to anyplace else! The Pacific Northwest is the greatest! I've left the Northwest many times & always "come back home." If we could have found a home to buy we would have moved to the ocean last fall, but moved to the Olympic Peninsula, very close to the Straits of Juan De Fuca.
If you've never been to the beach during a storm, it's a real experience. Go do it! Enjoy a storm over dinner & glas of wine in one fo the many waterfront restaurants, or a nice motel on the beach cuddled up in front of a nice fire watching a storm. What a memorable trip!!
I have been there and done all of that. Nothing like the beauty of the NW or west coast! It always tells you it's in control!
