|While it was misting and lightly raining the weather channel on my phone said 10% rain chance and partly cloudy. Guess that 10% followed us around all day. BUT we still had a great day on the Oregon coast. Our destination was Coos Bay (just sounds neat). On the way we stopped at a light house run by the US Coast Guard with a marvelous county run museum. We drove to Coos Bay and headed right to the water for lunch on a floating local seafood place (just two tables and we had one). Except for the weather the scenery was wonderful. Then we walked the boardwalk and learned all about Coos Bay's history. Next we went to the ocean side and drove the highway along the water to an overlook with a view of a remote light house. Then a little further up there was another overlook and here we found all the sea lions that were not in the cave the other day! There must have been a couple of thousand of them. All different varieties of seals. Very interesting that they stayed together by species. Shirley gave me a new set of super binoculars for my birthday and man did they come in handy. We did not want to leave. But we did and headed further south and found another Oregon State Park for the night. These parks are just wonderful. We back up to the biggest ocean sand dune we have ever seen. Wide, paved secluded spot with hook ups, $20. Very nice. Enjoy the pics.
