We're Back

We're back from a vacation on the coast, and it feels good to be home! Here's pictures from start to finish - watch out, there's a BUNCH!

At Sitka and Spruce - favoritest restaurant ever! Absolutely the best!!

Westhaven Beach - Near Westport, WA

 Our yurt in Grayland State Park! Really fun to stay in, everything stays nice and dry!

Drove down the Oregon coast and stopped at a bunch of things on the way. This is in Seaside, statue of Lewis and Clark in the background. This is supposedly where they came to the Pacific Ocean.

Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock. Pretty overcast.... but we got to walk all the way out to the rock and see all the tide pools around it.

Little sea things on the side of Haystack Rock.

Roseanna's Cafe in Ocean City, Oregon.  Romantic little spot. Below is the view from Ocean City.

Fairly certain this is Beverly Beach, right next to the "Devil's Punchbowl" and Otter Rock. Was fun watching people try to surf! ...looks difficult. Then took a nap in the sand.

Next stop was Yaquina Lighthouse, very interesting.

The last city we stopped in was Newport, Oregon. Decided to lay off on the driving and relax a few days. Was nice being able to adjust our plans as we went though. Below: Crabbing equipment on the sidewalk.
Rogue Brewery - took a free tour.

The last night we had a blast staying at the Sylvia Beach Hotel. Really awesome bed and breakfast. Each room is themed after an author - I'll give you one guess which author our room was themed after. There's a library on the forth floor, plus an attic full of more books, puzzles and reading nooks! There's a "Coffee room" with coffee and tea all the time and spiced wine in the evenings. There's also a cat named Shelly that lives there. Highly recommend it if you're ever in the area.

Lovely little garden area out front - the Tolkien room is right off the garden, would love to go back and stay there again some time. 

Good night and enjoy the last few days of summer!!
