It looks like I was very lucky and was one of the only people who were able to hike in and take photos. Wow! They are hoping to refloat the barge and pull it out on Wednesday. Everything is closed down to the public...but we can hear the helicopters buzzing overhead. Scroll down for more photos of this on the blog.

Sandy Bradley and Ginger Harshman enjoy wine and oysters before the silent auction ends and the live bidding begins! This fund-raiser benefited a beloved local artisan who has been very ill. The night before was the humane society auction event.

Royal Harshman and the skipper/bartender... enjoy some wine to wash down all the fabulous oysters. I have never had such nice oysters! All kinds...but the best were freshly shucked by Larry Warnberg.

Photo of Chief Nahcotta's great grandson...hanging at The Depot. (not really...just some old Jewish guy from Encino) I was coerced into buying it at the auction... my plan is to sneak it into local businesses... and hang it to surprise everyone. Kind of like the traveling Gnome in Amelie. We will get the business owner to sign the mat...then I will wisk it away to the next location... you never know where he will show up!

North Head Lighthouse is on my left and Beards Hollow is on the other side of the rocks on the right. I left the house in the middle of pouring rain, hail and wind... parked at Beards Hollow and hiked up to the Lighthouse. I was soaked through to the bone...but the adventure was breath taking! Quite a sight!!

It was interesting... listening in on the conversations of the salvage crew. They were determining the best way to pull the barge free from the rocks.

When the rain, hail and wind stopped...the helicopters started coming in. Rescue/salvage efforts are underway...and time for us all to clear out.

The fuel barge broke loose from its Tug during the wind and rain storms on Saturday night. This little alcove on the beach is a few miles from our house. This photo was taken from the North Head Lighthouse grounds.
