People pack beaches to beat heat wave

Lincoln City beaches were full of people Saturday, as they sought to avoid record high temperatures for the Pacific Northwest, predicted by the National Weather Service.

As word spread that much of Oregon was in for a historic heat wave, people started making plans to head to the coast, where temperatures were not expected to get above the 70s. People are coming in droves as is usual for this time of year, but with the extra hot conditions, even more are coming.

Lincoln City beaches packed

Beachgoers could be seen playing football, volleyball, fishing and crabbing all along the tourist town’s seven miles of beaches. One man, from McMinnville, set up a barbecue at D River Beach, grilling hot dogs and sausages for his family.

“We figured we better get away and beat the heat,” he said. “The whole family wanted to come so here we are!”

The Andersons from Sherwood had this day marked on their calendar for a month, and were lucky their trip coincided with the heat wave.

“It couldn’t be any better than this,” Ty Anderson said. “Crabbing, sun — this is the life.”

Temperatures are forecast to reach 82 degrees on Sunday for Lincoln City, cooling down to around 71 on Monday.

  1. Well, L.C., the 3 call rule is not an easy one to win, it takes 3 calls, that are
    proven within a certain time frame. For us, things aren’t as bad as it was
    a couple years ago, we had a vrd, and a resident gang up on us, and it all
    began over a dog and it’s poo, well, in the end, the vrd guy “decided” to sell…
    I have no idea why…it may have been the fact that we live here, and no one
    can beat a permanent resident, we kicked his Portland butt right out of
    town, along with his buddy next door. Now it’s actually 100% better, but
    to understand that, you’d have had to lived through what we did for over 2 years. We beat him at every turn, in court, and in his own backyard.
    He was a big shot, with a big check book, but it didn’t help him against
    the Koffels.

  2. Hay Kevin lucky you we don’t have any v.r.ds in our area but I know what you are going threw. Had a town house we owned a lot of years in town never rented it out used for our stays before we retired had house built sold town house. Glad we sold it had rentals right next to us loud partyers, yes doors slamming hollering yelling all hours had to call the rentals watch all the time to take care of problems. What ever happened to the city regulation three complaint calls the rental is shut down! Lucky all seniors live in area only two young couples none of use like v.r.ds still once in a while get lost out of towner looking for the casino racing threw asking how do we get there. One young couple do have twin 18 year old daughters that sunbath on deck and around yard that is good.

  3. Where are the bikini babes?
    Now there’s something I could appreciate. We just have people using the vrd
    dwellings in our neighborhood, who’s presence is announced by the relentless
    slamming of cars doors and trunks. Park- get your stuff out and go indoors
    already, then there are the ones that need to take it to the redline racing by
    in a car you wouldn’t want to buy used, honest it was my Grandmother’s car..

  4. Ya crowed in be rude to locales clean or store shelfs out walk out in frunt of cars driving thru town looking down at there smart phones. Could be bringing virus in for the unvaccinated. Just can’t wait end of month things open up again no restrictions will make it more worse yep tourist season is here again. To bad lot can’t act there age show some respect for us that live here. I still remember a little over year ago when state shut down home shelter how peace full quiet it was.
