Oregon, The Saga: Part 2

The "Devil's Punchbowl" - it fills with water at high tide, and is supposed to be spectacular to see during a storm.


Isaac searching for crabs.

Jacob's catch of the day.

The kids really enjoyed seeing the wildlife in the tidepools, and beachcombing for treasures. We came home with dozens of sand-coated mussel shells and dead crabs.

Grace wasn't fond of the wind or the waves - a bit too loud for her taste.

{From here, we drove up to Lincoln City for an unanticipated visit to a medical clinic - turned out Grace had come down with strep throat the day we drove here. Poor thing! We were very blessed to find a clinic that 1) accepted walk-ins, 2) was open on a Saturday, and 3) took our insurance.}

Marty trying to convince Grace that the water isn't so bad. Grace didn't buy it.

The boys' first venture out into the waves.

Grace didn't know what to make of the jetted tub filled with bubbles, but after a while it became her favorite thing. Unless we turned it on.

Exploring the pier down at the Bayfront.

Our lucky sighting of a sea lion "in the wild." The boys were thrilled and talked about it (even to complete strangers) for days.

The sunset view from our balcony.
