The New Year for 2010 in Cave Junction, Oregon was ushered in with the constant drumming of dark rain that morphed into an oppressive fog.

The sun was out, beaming seductive warmth through wisps of paint-brush clouds, which refracted light into candy cane pastel colors over the ocean horizon. The surf pleasantly droned moderate white-cap waves that were speckled with black-suited surfers waiting to a catch a few free rides.
