Last Saturday, we took the kids to the beach for the day. Originally it was going to be a camping trip, but we decided to bail on that idea after seeing the weather report. In the end, the weather was fine and we probably could have camped--except when we went to see what would have been our camping spot, we realized that it was too wooded for our tent (we have a rather large tent). So, in the end it was probably a good idea we just did a day trip.
We drove to Newport, which probably took us about 2 hours. Our two main stops were the Oregon Coast Aquarium and a walk on the beach--which ended up being a rather short stroll as the kids were pretty wiped after the Aquarium.
I'll have the pictures from the Aquarium next week, but I thought I'd start with these two. The first is an instagram of the mist coming in over Depoe Bay as we drove through. The second is the sunset as we drove home.
