Friday, August 4th ~ Astoria, Oregon
Today we traveled from Newport to Astoria Oregon. I’m tired tonight so keeping this short and sweet…
The Yaquina Head lighthouse was made in Paris in 1868 and shipped to Oregon. It was first lit August 20, 1873, and automated in 1966.
Depoe Bay is the whale watching capital of the Oregon coast. We had our first of two whale sightings today from here. It also claims to have the world’s smallest harbor.
Devil’s Punchbowl is thought to have been created when two caves carved by the ocean collapsed.
Munson Creek Falls measures 319 feet, making it the tallest waterfall in Oregon.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that my hubby has discovered Trip Advisor. He has been using it to find us some great places to eat. I will probably do an entire write-up to share some of the outstanding restaurants we have enjoyed along the way.
