North Oregon Coast


Tillamook County, 97131

This town is tucked inland just a bit so it does not receive the full force of the Pacific ocean storms. The storms push water back into Nehalem bay, however, and with high tide comes the flood. This place floods frequently. The Main street buildings are literally built about four feet above road level. We pass through here frequently. From finding a Stueben pepper shaker in an antique shop to watching the merchants prepare for a coming flood we have fun and interesting memories of Nehalem.
