    Why don't more people live along the Oregon coast line?

    I was noticing that Coos Bay, a town along Oregon's coast, has the largest population of any Oregon coastal town.  It was true back in 2010 I believe, but the population wasn't that big.  It really surprised me, and I wonder if anyone has thoughts on why that is.  For instance, wouldn't it be a great place for people to retire, even if there wasn't work there in their younger years?

    The Oregon coastline is beautiful but there is a lot of rain, cloudy day, fog, dampness etc--all year long.  Oregon is known for dreary weather. I used to live there when I was a girl. So if a person wants coastline and sunshine, So. Calif. is a the one, as least on the west coast.
