A few Oregon Coast photos

Finally after nearly a month, I have a working computer again! The power cord just came in the mail, and the first thing I did was upload my photos from my camera. All 955 photos from the month of August!

Here are just a few photos from the Oregon coast:
(No that is not a beer bottle, but it is a REAL soda, vintage ginger ale to be exact)

Here is the view from Ecola State Park:
And another photo at Ecola. We hiked along the ridge above the beach:
Cows and ice cream at Tillamook! I also got some amazing cheese can only get these at the factory!
We stopped at a fun little look out on our way to Newport. They had a gift shop which has been around since the 1930s and an amazing view of the ocean from 500 feet above: We really loved the lighthouse at Yaquina! We also saw some grey whales in the ocean just beyond the lighthouse.

Our anniversary dinner was at Rogue Brewery. We took the tour a couple of years ago, and this year we just enjoyed an awesome dinner and some beer samples. These onion rings blew us away!
The second full day of our trip was spent entirely in Cannon Beach, most of it AT the beach. We went to the beach exactly six times in one day, and although it was lovely, we had enough!

Pizza eating is our lunch tradition:
Finally, some photos of the beach at sunset! This was my favorite of all the time we went to the beach!
I should be back soon with more photos and stories. I certainly have a lot to tell. Have a great weekend everyone!
