Aug 2011 - Oregon coast day 2

We headed back to Cape Arago and the lighthouse viewpoint

on Tuesday morning. We really wanted to spot a whale,

but we settled for a bunch of seals!

Our plan was to head north on hwy. 101 for the day.

Our first stop was the Umpqua Lighthouse. We didn't feel like we had

enough time to wait for the tour so we just snapped this

picture and looked for a whale or two (which we never saw!)

We stopped at Old town Florence. We loved doing a little window shopping.

It was relaxing and we all picked up some little souvenirs.

We ended our visit with some yummy ice cream for the kids and a bag of taffy for Kannon.

Kannon couldn't leave without this photo op.

And we made it all the way up to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport.

We loved the beauty of the fish

and getting to touch anemone's and starfish.

We toured the zoo-like outdoors and Sarah flirted with this otter.

A few more photo ops at the end and then we headed south, back to our campsite.

Heceta Head Lighthouse. We were too late for the tours, but I enjoyed a

quiet walk to the lighthouse and then made it back down in time for the sunset.
