The Oregon Coast Exposed

Photo shows the corroding boiler from a 1910 shipwreck that stands out at low tide, located at Boiler Bay, just north of Depoe Bay on the Orergon's Central Coast.

As reported by Joe Rojas Burke in today's Oregonian: "Super-low tides at the Oregon coast will again provide ideal conditions to view a range of sea life not usually exposed to human visitors to the tidal zone. On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, the tides will drop as low as minus 3 feet, which is about as low as the tide will get on the oregon coast. Extream minus tides reveal sea scapes and marine life that's hidden under pounding surf most of the year."
