Crissey Field State Park
Our first day back in Brookings, we decided to see some of the beaches along the Samuel H. Boardman Scenic Corridor that we missed the first time around. Our first stop was Crissey Field State Park.
Whaleshead is about 7 miles north of Brookings. There is a sea stack that looks like the head of a whale. We went to the Whaleshead Trail Viewpoint parking area. No one else was around. There were two paths down to the beach so Shawn said he would check one of them out, and if it was all right, he would come back and get me. Thirty minutes later, I was still waiting for him. Naturally, I was concerned that something could have happened. One’s imagination tends to run wild! I spent my time taking pictures of what was around me.
Finally Shawn arrived back, and found that I was not too happy with his disappearance. He said he went as far as he could go, but that the path was too steep so he turned around and returned to where I was waiting. Needless to say, we did not see much of Whaleshead Beach! We discovered later that there was a much easier way down to the beach from another road, but we didn’t have time to go.
