the 2011 storm season begins

 one of the first 2011 storms hits the oregon coast in october

For the start of the 2011 storm season, I headed to Little Whale Cove to check out some wave-on-rock action.  The storms have since been pretty unimpressive for the winter, but I still have my fingers crossed that  another big event will roll in this year.
