I’ve taken a break from sewing sea life to go see the real thing. My cousin and I rented a little cabin and we’ve been exploring up and down central Oregon’s coast with our kids.
One of our traditions is getting ice cream and then eating it while we watch the sea lions on the docks at the Newport waterfront. My kids choose their ice cream by its color – the more lurid the better. In between bites the kids bark at the sea lions and the sea lions bark back.
It is such a beautiful drive down highway 101. We saw whales spouting nearby from this high point, but my camera never quite captured them.
The Yaquina Head Lighthouse stands above my favorite Oregon beach, Cobble Beach, with sea lions, seals, common murre nesting colonies, and round black volcanic rocks that chatter and whisper with each wave. Absolutely unique.
And how about this fabulous view while knitting socks?
