Feeling Beachy Outta Newport

My wife and I were very lucky to get what was basically a free trip to the beach. The weather finally turned, so we hoped the rain would help firefighters with the many fires in the American West.  Alas, the precipitation was relatively modest, but that meant our beach trip was more pleasant than expected.   After romantic walks on the beach in Newport, we visited Yaquina Head.   While Denise stayed in the visitor center, I strolled up Salal Hill and checked out Cobble Beach below.  Great spots.  I think we visited the area more than a decade ago.  This was a great rediscovery, and well worth the time.

  1. It was a beautiful weekend, walking the beach, cliff trails, relaxing and even a bit of work on my never ending research. I am glad we were able to go.
