  • I love the history that is just sticking out of the sand here. This beach is a lot of fun as it is a very long beach and great for long walks. Watching the wreck rust away a little each year is fun too as i have been taking pictures of this for the last 20 years. The beach always seems to be clean and ready to explore.
  • This is a really wonderful spot to spend an afternoon. There were a lot of people clamming (seemed like a good spot for people looking to get some razor clams) and flying kites (like most places on the coast). The shipwreck was very picturesque.
  • If you've ever wanted to get up close to an old ship wreck this is your chance. Do be careful though as the edges are very rough. It's busy during the weekends especially with photographers. Make sure to go at low tide if you want to walk right up to it. If you visit at high tide the water surrounds it but still looks nice.
  • Crowded. Cool place to see. Hard to get to if you have difficulty walking because of climbing up and down the sand. Still if you're careful you can do it.
  • The Peter Iredale Shipwreck on Clatsop Spit, at Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton Oregon. Long exposure. I was really fortunate this trip. The high tide schedule coincided reasonably well with the sunset schedule, but the rain was very heavy. I had flip flopped back and forth whether I should even bother driving from Astoria to Warrenton because of the weather. So, I decided to drive to Seaside and have lunch and see a movie (Thor Ragnarok!!) and thought I’d see what it was like driving back to Astoria. It was raining on the way back but, as I have some all weather gear for my camera, I thought I’d chance it. I got to Clatsop Spit and it was still raining. Heavily enough that I thought about just driving back to my hotel in Astoria. I took a walk down to the beach to see what the tide was doing, and on the horizon I see this thin strip of sunlight where the sun is setting. The waves were coming in fairly heavily and crashing on the Iredale, and it looked gorgeous. So, I went back to the car, got my camera and tripod and camera rain gear and headed back down to the beach. By the time I got my tripod set up the rain had actually stopped! Not a drop fell for the 45 minutes I was there until I was about 5 feet from the car on my way to the parking lot! I doubt if I could have planned it better. I would have preferred a little less cloud above me, but considering what the weather was like that weekend, it was about 95% of what I could have wanted. Every year the Peter Iredale gets covered in more and more sand. Go see it before it’s swallowed forever by the sand. May God bless you and may your bones bleach in the sands.
