While my sister was visiting from NC back in July, we went on a trip to the coast. We did some fun stuff with the kiddos and then on one of the days that Danny was there we (just me and Kaeley) were able to go to Newport and Nye Beach.
After the Science Center we went to lunch at the Chowder Bowl down in Nye Beach. YUM!
Fortunately, it was warm enough that we didn’t need to have a fire because I refused to go anywhere near that shed.
Owen was so excited that he was yelling at anyone who walked by the cabin that he found a snake. And of course, he took the picture…
At the end of Spring Break we headed over to the coast for a couple of days. The kids and I were on the tail-end of colds (surprise, surprise) and the weather wasn’t great. But we still had fun.
We had a delicious dinner out to celebrate my b-day and Danny’s (from back in February).
The first day we couldn’t even go down to the beach because the wind and rain were so bad. The second day was better and we went down to check out the beach and the creek to see how they had changed after some recent storms.
The creek was bigger, moving faster and deeper than last time. Grace even got to her waist when she stepped in a bad spot. The rubber boots only help so much.
The kids had so much fun at Seal Rock State Wayside.
There were some neat rocks for them to climb on and lots of places to explore.
Tide was just starting to come in and there were some other people on the beach that told us that this part of the beach would be completely gone during high tide. We decided to make our adventure a short one so that it didn’t become a wet one…
Over the New Year holiday we went to the beach. We decided to go on an “adventure” to Seal Rock State Wayside. There is a parking lot where you can walk down stairs and a path to the beach…but that’s not adventurous enough for us! We had to park at the next pullout and climb down to the beach.
