With the summer sunshine taking a sabbatical from the ocean, most travelers are pulling their sweaters out of storage and trading in their flip flops and tank tops for more sensible rainy weather attire. However, here at the beach, we’re on the edge of our seats, waiting for those magnificent winter storm watching days to begin. The Cottages at Cape Kiwanda offer front row seats for breathtaking ocean waves to come crashing over the Cape. During a mighty storm, the ocean turns a glowing green, which contrasts beautifully with the foamy white tips of watery turmoil.
If storm-watching isn’t to your tastes, and you’re still looking for outdoor adventure, believe it or not, surfing is still the thing to do this fall season. When the tide is right, you’ll still see dozens of surfers bobbing around off the shore, catching the rolling waves. The rain doesn’t faze them. Obviously, when you’re up to your ears in water, the rain tends to blend in to the ocean spray. If you’ve never surfed in your life or maybe just need a refresher course, the fine staff at “Moment Surf Company” are the people in town to meet. Ask your Concierge to set up a summit with Nick Wright, Pacific City’s prized and charismatic surf instructor, who will make it his prerogative to get your feet planted firmly on a long board and cruising through the surf with confidence.
We’ve got you covered here at the Cottages at Cape Kiwanda - just let us know what you need to keep the summer excitement going strong - only without the sun block.
