Thor's Well in Cape Perpetua, Yachats, Oregon (Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip)

It soon became apparent that we were traveling through Oregon's west coast faster than I planned. By that evening, we had reached Thor's Well, a seaside attraction where waves shoot up into the air from various holes in the rocky surface.

Thor's well is located in Cape Perpetua, Yachats, Oregon.

There is a large turnout with parking spots for the seaside attraction. The area is also called Cooks Chasm.

Thor's Well is a neat little stop and definitely worth a visit during the evening or a storm. The view of the bridge directly behind the vista point is cool to look at and its fun to consider early travelers racing across the beach against high tide to cross the gulf. There are also many mussels covering the ground and other weird sealife in the pools.

On our way to the motel, we stopped by another bar to grab beer and good. The name of the bar was Snug Harbor Bar and Grill.

The night we stopped by for dinner was karaoke night, so we had a bit of entertainment with our meal.

2/6 on the beer scale. The restaraunt, ambiance, food, and service were all amazing. But rating on just the beer alone and the variety, I'd give it 2/6 which is perfectly fine for a dive bar. See: http://hikerrific.blogspot.com/2016/07/willys-beer-ranking-system.html

We finished our day in a Motel 6 in Lincoln City that night.
