We had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Oregon coast this past week. We took the trip to continue the college search, but while there, we took some much needed time to decompress as a family and see this beautiful part of the country.
Does it rain in Oregon? Oh, yes . . . lots and lots . . . however, we got very lucky. As it turns out, our Thursday was relatively rain free and, as the locals told us, quite warm.
Here is the Yaquina Head Lighthouse . . . locate just a few miles north of Newport Oregon.
Near the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, there was a perch from which we could view Newport Bay Bridge.
We found this wonderful home to rent in Seal Rock, Or. It was large and perfect for us to relax at. Not more than 50 steps from the house was this incredible beach . . . almost secluded from the public. Here are a few images from beach.
It took me a while to figure out what this was but it is known as a Sea Star
The beach and tidepools were Sea Anemone filled . . . all were gorgeous!
This family of waterfowl were fun to watch.
The surf was incredibly strong . . . i couldn't imagine surfing here
The simplistic beauty of the tidepools
