Oregon Coast

Approaching storm. Time to go!










We had another break in the rain, well at least it was not raining as hard. We headed out to the Coast again. We had a short visit with my brother Bill before we went on to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. I have not been here in many years. This is the aquarium which used to house Keiko the Killer Whale which was the star in the movie “Free Willy”. Well Keiko is long since gone and the aquarium has had a lot of changes but it was a nice visit. A couple of geocaches, some jelly fish and puffins. Not a bad day in my book!

We heard about another place to eat too. South Beach Café. It is not a big fancy place but the food was good. We even learned that if you hang a zip-lock bag of water over your doorway, it keeps flies out. It must have worked. We did not see any flies in there!

From there we tried to go to see some of the large surf that was in the area, but the tide was going out and the rain was coming in, and darkness was falling so we called it a day. I love the coast!
