Third in Unusual Oregon Coast Book Series Published

Published 12/13/2018

(Portland, Oregon) – The third in the Ultimate Oregon Coast Travel book series has been released, this time covering Lincoln City, Gleneden Beach and Neskowin. Written by Oregon Coast Beach Connection ( editor Andre’ Hagestedt, it joins the other two in a series that will eventually number ten books.

The book is titled “Ultimate Oregon Coast Travel: Lincoln City (Neskowin, Gleneden Beach),” and like the other two about Cannon Beach and Seaside, the subtitle is “Every Beach Access, Odd Facts, Fun Finds.” All three books take a detailed trip through each section of coast, listing every beach access in the area, and then taking that farther and delving deep into the history of them, the geology and a host of trivia that range from the enlightening to the bizarre.

Each book spends considerable time on the surprises of these distinct areas as well as the weird science of these beaches. Glowing sand (bioluminescence), the Green Flash at Sunset, double-headed sunsets, what feature was once a 2,000-foot-high volcano to the strange objects hiding beneath the sands: the books cover these and much more.

More traditional coastal activities such as crabbing, clamming and hiking again come under more insider’s tip scrutiny, as well as the surprises found in the wildlife in the area or other aspects of nature. Parking and traffic tips are provided, too.

Among the finds:

- History of the lighthouse a mile offshore from Seaside and Cannon Beach
- What causes the odd brown waves at Seaside, and why it’s a good thing
- Mysterious structures seen only in winter like the ghost forests or red towers
- How one town helped change rock ‘n’ roll history
- The uncomfortable world of lodging 100 years ago
- Delightful weather phenomena
- Unique seasonal tips
- All about gray whales and Orcas
- Oddball history of Pixieland, Pixie Kitchen

The point is, Hagestedt said, you need to be armed with even more info about your beach destination in order to enjoy it to the fullest. These exhaustive access guides are not only handy, but they provide deep insights into what’s going on around you – and beneath you – causing lots more dropping of the jaw.

All three books are available in select bookstores on the Oregon coast as well as on Amazon, which has them in paperback and in ebook form. See the Amazon link here. The Lincoln City ebook debuted in September in the number one spot for new releases in Amazon’s western Pacific travel category.

Hagestedt has been documenting each beach access on about 180 miles of the coastline (the upper half) for 20 years through Oregon Coast Beach Connection, then publishing news articles or magazine-like features on the publication on a variety of outdoor, entertainment, history or science subjects. There are numerous items in the books not on the web publication, and more such surprises are coming in the rest of the series.

The Depoe Bay book is next, likely coming in early January.
