Oregon Coast

I finally made it to the beach!  We decided that yesterday we would drive to the coast.  My vacation had finally come!
First peek at the beach

The ocean

Chris and Chino at the beach

The waves.....

The crashing sound...

I was in heaven!

Too bad it only lasted 1/2 hour instead of the anticipated 10 days.  Oh well, such is life!  Next time maybe it will work out.

We stopped for lunch in Reedsport and were able to get fresh seafood.

Griff's Restaurant and Seafood Market

A few other sites along the way:

Bridge across Coos Bay

A little hard to tell from these pictures, but this is a railroad bridge that floats and turns when there is traffic into the bay 

And to wrap up, here's a view of the North Fork of the Willamette River just across the street from Chris's house.

Memorial Tribute to a wagon train that veered from the Oregon Trail and ended up in Oakridge

That wraps things up for now.  Sid and Chris are going to play golf in the morning, we'll pack up in the afternoon and head out on Saturday morning.  Hope to make stops in Medford, Ashland, Crater Lake and Klamath Falls on our way out of Oregon.
