So here are photos from our camping trip to Beverly Beach.
Rob and I left early so we could go to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. If I haven’t said it before, I love love aquariums. I love sea life. Aquariums make me happy.
Rob and the otter
me & the seals!
I wish this guy would’ve come down from the ceiling so I could get a better look.
After the aquarium we drove the 7 miles north to Beverly Beach. We set up our tent and went down to the beach.
There was kelp all over the beach.
This picture makes me giggle, cause Rob looks so manly with an axe.
For the dinner Rob and I brought I marinated some chicken and a steak for Rob, and I roasted red potatoes in EVOO and balsamic vinegar and garlic pepper. Dee-lish!
Warriors, come out and plaaay.
After dinner we took a walk down the beach.
Mike found a jellyfish.
It was pretty cool looking. It was completely see through. Mike threw it back in the ocean.
We walked down the beach a little further and found a row of crevasses in the sand. We thought there might be some tide pools, but no.
Mike walked over to the sandbar, where after this photo was taken he lost a flip flop to the ocean. This is one of my favorite shots from the trip.
Mike displays his one flip flop.
On our way back we found this piece of treasure. It’s not that clear, but in the upper left hand corner there are boobies. I swear we did not do this.
Then it was smores time!
I made fun of Rob for his silly head flash light, but I later came to love it.
Leah made this egg, pepper, sausage, and spinach and it was good.
We spent the day in Newport, and the weather was absolutely perfect.
We hung out on the pier for a while and listened to the sea lions bark.
We went to the Undersea Gardens where a diver goes in and feeds the sea life and tells you all about them.
Then we went to the wax museum. It was odd. And this picture is a perfect example of why.
Leah said “I better not get frigid!”. She did.
Not sure which is creepier, the expression on my face or Frodo’s.
We also went to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. There was this tunnel and the walls spun around and around and it makes you feel like you’re spinning. It’s crazy.
I sort of wish this was real. It’s considered the world’s greatest hoax.
We went back to camp and Leah made her dinner for us. Chili. Good chili. With cornbread, fritos and cheese. So so good.
Then we walked on the beach, the other way.
Found another jelly.
Mike and Leah brought glow sticks, which were fun. And Mike broke one and it spilled all over him.
That night it rained. It rained the next morning. All our chairs were wet, our wood was wet. Rob and I couldn’t make our breakfast of pancakes. So we packed up and made our way to Newport and had breakfast at Pig ‘n Pancake, an Oregon coast staple.
Despite the rain our trip was pretty awesome. Next time, I want my own head flash light.
