Escaping the Heat with a Day at the Coast

Temperatures in Salem hit 99 degrees yesterday, but it didn’t bother us as we spent the day at the coast with temps 30-35 degrees cooler.  We visited Ona Beach, lunched at The Chowder Bowl, and had dinner at McMenamins Lighthouse Brewpub; a full day. Sean and Jeanette are shown here watching for a whale to “blow” at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area north of Newport.  I took almost a hundred photos and we had a number of other interesting sightings of Brown Pelicans, Pigeon Guillemots, Common Murres, Pelagic Cormorants, and Peregrine Falcons, that I will probably write about in the days to follow as time allows.
