Looking for Winter things to see and do on the Oregon coast. Is Thor’s Well a good choice?

Continuing the discussion from Thor’s Well:
For as long as we’ve lived here this feature of Cape Perpetua State park has been known colloquially as simply the Toilet Bowl. The photographer who took these pictures not knowing the local name called it Thor’s Well and the name stuck. The state of Oregon renamed it Thor’s Well and put up directional signs in the park. Cook’s Chasm, a spectacular tidal water spout, and the bowl are a short walk from the entrance while the surrounding area features numerous lovely hiking trails.
