South Beach, OR
Yesterday (Tuesday) we set out to explore the Yaquina Head Lighthouse just a few miles north of Newport, OR. Of course, with all of the beautiful opportunities to pull off the road and take pictures and walk on the beaches we got strayed from our original goal until later in the afternoon.
We took a walk down on the beach from one of the pull offs. There is definitely a lot of beach to walk and explore, many times with very few people other than yourself.
We almost made it to the end of the Otter Crest Loop when we found a few more pull outs. Again, we just had to stop and take a few MORE pictures of the beautiful Oregon coastline.
As expected, views from the top of the lighthouse are spectacular. Sorry, I just had to include a few more beach shots.
There was an abundance of these creatures throughout the tidal pools.
It was just starting to get dark when we finished exploring today. A very nice end to another great day here on the Oregon coast.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
