Apr 4, 2016 - Seal Rock OR / Newport OR

Candy drove down to get her bowl that she made yesterday but it wasn’t totally dry so she had to leave it for a couple of hours. She got back to the motorhome and we had lunch. We left again to stop for the bowl and visit the Hatfield Marine Science Center in downtown Newport. We wanted to be there before 1 pm, which is when they will feed the Octopus. We made it and that was interesting as the octopus kept attaching to the arm of the lady that was feeding him. I think I got some good shots. It was a small place but very interesting how it...

Apr 3, 2016 - Seal Rock OR / Newport OR

We were supposed to leave today but decided that we would stay so I could watch the NASCAR race and Candy can watch here Dancing with the Stars on Monday night, so Tuesday we will be heading north again. Candy drove to town to get some stuff so we could grill outside tonight, but then she called and is at a glass blowing place. Guess she is going to try her hand at making a handmade something. She finally returned home but will need to return in the morning to finish it. We were going to cook out but for the first time on this trip, it is...

Apr 2, 2016 - Seal Rock OR / Newport OR

We took it easy this morning. Only thing on the agenda was go to the local Farmers Market and take a boat cruise. The Farmers Market is only held on Saturday between 10 am to 2 pm. It was a small one but had a lot of organic grown items. It only took about 15 minutes to walk thru it but it was nice. Next stop needed to be Newport Bayfront where we will take our boat cruise. This was very nice because the weather was fabulous so we not only got to see the waterfront but also out in the Pacific Ocean. As we left the dock the boat crew dropped...

Apr 1, 2016 - Seal Rock OR / Toledo Oregon

Our journey today was to Toledo Oregon. It is located just 7 miles east of Newport Oregon. The history of this town starts with Joseph D. Graham who was born in Carroll County, Ohio. It is said that when the post office was establish in 1868, Joseph D. Graham, a son, was told that he could name the place. He said: "I am homesick for Ohio. We will call this place Toledo." Could not pass up the chance to visit Toledo, just in another state. We returned to Newport and stopped at “Abbey’s Pizza”. Did not know my granddaughter had her own pizza...

Mar 31, 2016 - Seal Rock Oregon

Today we will finally be leaving California. We are 10 miles from Oregon and looking forward to this. First, we have never been in Oregon State, Second, it appears prices will drop for campgrounds and gas what we are told. We will be driving US 101 along the coast but it does cut inland at times and goes thru the forest along the coast. We made it to Oregon and the drive along US 101 at the coast was one of the most beautiful drives we have every done. The shore line is mostly cliffs to the water with large rocks just off shore, as you see...

Jun 26, 2012 - Seal Rock

We had a wonderful travel day on thru; we had been having 30 mph winds for about a week. That is not fun to drive a 40’ motor home in curves and high winds. So thank God for winds of only 5 to 10 mph. Most of the pictures were taken from the front of the motor home threw a very dirty windshield. But we wanted you to see, what we are seeing as we drive on hwy 101 the since coastline. We will be staying in Sea Rock RV Cove, at the small town of Seal Rock Oregon. We have a wonderful RV site; we can watch the sun set over the ocean. We...

Jun 26, 2012 - Seal Rock Beach

Seal Rock Beach is a great beach. The sunsets are beautiful, I will post several pictures so you can see for yourself. There are whale watching boats just off the coast line every day. Even in the rain! We have not had very good internet service. I am behind with journals, so today is catch up day. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Jul 31, 2011 - Seal Rock, Oregon

11/31/11 Well...we finally got the taste of the Oregon coast that I was looking and hoping for. Rt. 101 follows the coast from Canada to Mexico according to a sign we saw at a roadside viewpoint. There are also numerous side roads that are right on the very edge of the coast....something like Rt. 1 and 1A back in New England. So we found ourselves looking at some more fantastic scenery! I hate to keep repeating myself and saying that but that's the way it is.... The morning started foggy but cleared a little before noon and we didn't...

Jul 31, 2010 - Kayak Beaver Creek & Bog

We started out to Kayak Yaquina Bay but the port launch was so busy and the weather so foggy we decided to try Beaver Creek. The Beaver is a nice new boat ramp area immediately across from Ona Beach where we walked just yesterday. We launched into a seeming reflecting pool of immense beauty. We paddled toward the Pacific under the 101 bridge. The scenery was beautiful and restful. There were several lily pads. We went to the terminus of Beaver creek where a giant sand bar separated the creek from the Pacific. We then retraced and went...

Jul 30, 2010 - Ona Beach & Seal Rocks

We left at 8AM for a very scenic beach walk. We began at Ona Beach State Park and walked through coastal pines and shrubs to the flatland area beach. It was a scenic vista with miles of sand punctuated with a myriad of lava outcroppings of all shapes and sizes. One could envision many possible forms from benches,to fish, to seal shapes, to toadstool shapes,etc. It was like a giant Rohrschach test-what do you see? The beach is lined by steep and sheer sandstone cliffs. Atop the cliffs are dense foliage and firs followed by areas of home...
