The Oregon Coast

We're back from our trip to the Oregon coast.
Stopped along the way to take in the waterfalls.

Vic & I.
At a fish hatchery.

Gorgeous Falls!

Found shipwreck's on the beach.

 Four Stevens and look they even named it after us! LOL

Enjoying the local cuisine.

Our view from our tent one day.

We had our Anniversary dinner at Tidal Raves. It was wonderful!

This is right outside the restaurant, we had a gorgeous ocean view.

spent some time at the Aquarium

This little guy was darling!

In Newport we took this boat out crabbing.

We each limited out on  crab.

This was a working boat where we all had a job to do. Vic helped pull pots.
I had to check the size and sexes for keepers.(no that's NOT me) LOL
I did get pinched a couple of times really good and
unfortunately did get a little sea sick when we hit the ocean.

The beautiful coast


We walked along the beach and will cherish all these memories for a lifetime.

Oh Lynn, how awesome! My husband wants to take me to Olympic park someday, as it was one of the stations he was at in the navy. I so want to see that side of the country. It looks like you had an amazing time!

And you drove within 20 miles of Elgin each way, didn't you? HWY 84 from Portland? ;-) It looks as if you had the most marvelous time! You tented? Not me...I'm a motel gal. We leave next week for Crater Lake...a location on my "bucket list." Glad you had such a great vacation.

Happy Anniversary, dear Lynn! It seems like you both had a wonderful vacation! The scenery is beautiful and especially the waterfalls are amazing. With the fog in the background, the ship wreck almost looks a little bit spooky. Otters are so cute. I love those guys.
Have a great week :-)!

We LOVE Oregon, specifically Newport. My BIL was the harbour master there years ago and we've been many times...Turtle Beach..love it. My SIL still lives there and we're dieing to go back. There's a Bed & Breakfast Boat on the Aquarium side of the area we're looking to go to.
Great pics!
