C is for coast.  Last week my wife and I were able to spend a few days on the Oregon Coast.  My wife's siblings all met for a reunion.  We had a great time and the weather was beautiful for January.  Family from Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Arkansas came to the coast and we had a great time together.

While we were there we visited places along the coast from Tillamook to Newport.  There is beautiful scenery all along the coast.

Some of my favorite memories of our time on the coast are of the sunsets.  We had beautiful sunny days, and incredible sunsets every evening.

On of our favorite stops was at the Sea Lion Caves.  This is a natural sea cave that is the home to many Stellar Sea Lions.  The attraction has been open to the public since 1932.

Later, while we were in Newport, we saw a couple of sea lions right beside the pier.

There are so many beautiful sights along the Oregon Coast.  If you ever get a chance to visit I highly recommend it.

Of all the fun and interesting things that we did, my favorite thing was walking on the beach with my best girl.

  15. The Oregon coast is a wonderful place to visit. I love the sound of waves crashing on the shore. One of our favourite spots is Gleneden Beach. We can fly our plane to the small Siletz Bay Airport, camp under the wing and eat across Highway 101 at the Side Door Cafe. Yum! Some of those sea lions swim all the way north to the Strait of Georgia to breed in the spring. That seems so amazing. - Margy
