    A couple of weeks ago I was at the Oregon Coast and here are some things I found to be strange. It was soon erased by the tide and these are just some record shots. THis is a popular area for surfers so it must be part of some surfer ritual. :smile:

    Looks like Short Sands Beach....used this beach in that Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze pic "Point Break". They were supposed to be in Australia surfing.......re: the "offering" on the beach...maybe it was to the sharks so that they wouldn't be mistaken for Sea Lions.

    It's indeed an Inukshuk. They were built by the Native Americans to show other tribes that people were there or crossed that path. Kind of like a route marker.
