I was able to escape to Lincoln City on the Oregon coast again from August 30th thru Sept 4th.
The weather was perfect! And the company was wonderful. Randy and I had a great time! So obviously there will be lots of photos.

There were whales off the coast and at Cape Foulweather Lookout we could see them spouting!
I was thrilled. Maybe one day I will get an even closer look!
Here is the Yaquina lighthouse. Very different from most of them. 
It was only in operation from 1871 to 1874, 3 years, until the new one was built.
There's bridge near the light house and it is rather artistic looking, I could not resist taking pics of it. 
 Charlotte, Randy's dog, met a small dog and seemed rather puzzled by its size. She actually shook!
This is the point where we could see whales spouting off the coast.
Here is Randy and Charlotte spotting whales!
Here I am!!!

We also went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon.
I had not been there in a LONG time and had a great time!
It is difficult taking photographs through thick plexi-glass, but some did come out. 
I was feeling the anemone!
Randy being attacked by a whale shark!
Randy getting touchy-feely with the anemones and starfish!
The puffins were adorable and fly so well under water!
We saw two fawns again but sadly their mother was absent.
We were told that a deer had been killed earlier on the highway.
It was such a fun time!!
Hope you enjoyed the photographs!
