I think I have just returned from the best little weekend vacation that I have had in a lot of years!
Went with my daughter and her family to the Oregon Coast to take in the sites! We first went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium at Newport.
Then we went to our hotel which was awesome, with a patio that looked right out to the beach. We spent time on the rocks looking in the tide pools, built a sand castle and got our feet wet in the sea!
We watched the ocean at night with huge resort lights shinning on the waves. Gorgeous!
Then the next day after visiting and picnicing at beach, we left for Yaquina Head to see the lighthouse.
We got a bonus, as the birds were in their mating season on the ocean rocks.
Then we went to a small cove, where we got some amazing pictures of seals relaxing on the rocks. One of them gave me a show with his antics . . . . but I will save those pictures for later in the week!
It was an awesome trip as we traveled up the coast past tourist towns and ending up with dinner and ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Visitor Center! (A few more pictures are on my Facebook page.)
