A waterfall flows into the ocean along the northern Oregon coast. I spent a couple days hunting for waterfalls into the ocean, I found several but the light wasn't great so will be heading back again just after the new year. I was fortunate with some decent light this day.

I set my backpack down as I usually do with camera in hand and proceeded to run around looking for compositions I liked. After a bit of scouting, I looked back at my gear and saw it starting to float out to sea! Man.... I know better than setting stuff down in a place that isn't well above the slightest chance of ever getting hit by waves, DOH! I ran into the surf and grabbed my bag, along with a couple items that were floating along separately. Nothing too wet that couldn't dry....
