Oregon Coast Vacation - Day 2

Not much energy to write...long story...had a long night with noisy neighbors, then did a lot of walking today. It was cloudy all day and rainy for some of it, but still had a great time. I'll post some pics of our adventures today and write more later. I'm guessing that no one's reading anyway because they're all busy with Harry P.

Went to Yaquina Head Lighthouse and walked up and down all these steps to the top.
Explored the shops in Newport



Saw lots of ships, fishermen, a seal and a jellyfish in the harbor.



Had more delicious seafood!



Discovered a new holiday - International Talk Like a Pirate Day - Sep 19

Good stuff!
It's so hot and humid here... not fun.
Randy & Miranda read from 5 PM- midnite... and then they started up again this morning at 9 am and they are still going strong. They hope to finish tonight...

Major jealousy on my side -- the trip looks to have been amazing so far (particularly all that great seafood). Looking forward to seeing you guys soon!

That is so funny about Talk Like a Pirate Day... my friend Tom from work actually commemorates that holiday every year by doing roll in his classes with a Pirate accent... seriously!

It's fun reading your comments about your trip! Being born and raised in Oregon's Pacific Northwest, I've been to Newport (and Mo's and this lighthouse) several times growing up. It's fun to read about it from a visitor's perspective. :)
