South Jetty, Oregon
I am not sure what I expected the Oregon coast to be like. I had never been there. We stayed at South Jetty Thousand trails in a green temperate forest. There was green everywhere.
We were very close to the beach and the sand dunes. It was too cold to go swimming,
but we had a great time on the almost deserted beach.
We made a fort on the beach out of driftwood. Marcus and Caroline met some other children to play with too.
We had seen adds for Sea Lion Caves. We weren’t planning on making a stop there because it would have cost us about $50. It just happened to be their 80th anniversary so they were only charging 25 cents each or a donation to marine research (which we were glad to do.)
The hillside was covered with yellow blooms.
We went down the elevator to view the sea lions swimming in and out of the cave.
On the rocks outside were hunreds of sea lions sunning themselves. They were a noisy bunch.
We even stopped by Mo’s for some fried fish and chowder!
Cloe gave this beach two paws!
