Continuing on our anticlockwise loop of WA and Oregon, we finally made it to Lincoln City, on the Oregon Coast. Here is our first glimpse of the ocean
(view: looking North)
(view: looking South)
We headed farther south and stopped at Depoe Bay
Just south of Depot Bay was this rugged coast line and in the background you can just make out the Sea Caves
(Depot Bay, Oregon)
It was our good fortune to see a whale spouting. Nearly missed him again. You never know where they are going to surface. We waited, and waited, but he didn't surface again
Here is a view from the balcony of our hotel which overlooks the sandy beach
Another view of the beach action. Soon we will be among them
(facilities include: Sauna, Spa and Pool)
We will stay here for a day or so before we head home. Tomorrow we will drive down Hwy 101 a bit and savour the scenery and experience the food from small town eateries.
. . . but for now, the SPA (ie: hot tub) beckons . . .
