FLORENCE, Ore. -- With one of the warmest days of the year so far, many people headed to the Oregon coast to enjoy the day in the sunshine. At Honeyman State Park just south of Florence, several people spent the day enjoying the water and sandboarding on the dunes.
"It's beautiful down here. Absolutely wonderful weather all day. We're gonna go on a sand dune here. The weather's perfect," said Garth Attaway.
Tuan Pham and his extended family from Seattle made the Oregon coast part of their vacation. "We have about 24 family members and we wanted to go somewhere where they have sand dunes and sand buggys and enjoy family vacation," he said.
"It's beautiful here and ive never seen the sand dunes..nice weather. I couldn't have asked for more," said Hong Lim.
People also enjoyed sandboarding at the dunes."You feel lots of pain with the sand whipping in your face," said Braden McHammond from Canada.
