Rick, With a view like that I would bet that is one popular park bench!  I know that I could sit there for hours enjoying that view!

Tony & Darcy: Give me a good book ("The Old Man and the Sea"?) and a warm jacket and I could sit there all day.  The Oregon Coast isn't usually very crowded, so I wouldn't have to share the bench very often either.
