Continuing our Oregon coastal route to Portland, we made our next stop in Lincoln City. It was another great find along the Oregon coast!
|The backside of our campsite...the fishing dock and boat launch :)|
-Exploring our new area-
We saw this sign a lot along the coast!
And we did this a lot, too :)
This is the way to our favorite Lincoln City beach.
The beach is at the end of this street, on the left.
|Fish faces :)|
We loved this beach for many reasons:
|It has been very windy every time we went to any beach in Oregon...so we bought a kite.|
What is the best way to make the wind stop? Buy a kite :)
Our kite only made three very short trips up before the wind stopped completely.
|Pure joy :)|
There is driftwood everywhere...perfect for climbing and exploring!
|Building a hideout|
Sightseeing around Lincoln City and Depoe Bay:
And here it is!
|125 feet long: "D" River|
|Meanwhile, Depoe Bay boasts they have the World's Smallest Harbor|
We checked out the "Surfing Museum" in Lincoln City.
The kids are very interested in surfing since watching
|Faux surfing....until we make it to Hawaii :)|
|A little known fact about Jon and I:|
We were the models for the Endless Summer movie poster :)
on the boardwalk in Depoe Bay, OR
We stopped in the Whale Center in Depoe Bay....
|A killer whale|
|The jaw bone of a gray whale---it's bigger than Jolie :)|
|Whale watching! But, no whales to be found today :(|
We did find a harbor seal playing in the harbor.
And we did a little geocaching....
We're heading to Portland via Tillamook next!
