The rooms are not very fancy. Set- up like regular motel, room doors open to outside. I was intrigued because of the salt water swimming pool and hot tub. You can pretend like you are swimming in the ocean without worrying about being carried away by a sneaker wave or freezing. I felt the price was reasonable, although I think they may have raised prices since we stayed there. The staff was nice.

Yesterday was another moving day with our traveling hotel. Another truck day with my back window giving me some fresh air while mom sits up front with her heated seat on. A few tense moments as dad drove through Portland, and a few discussions regarding turns between mom and dad. I sit trying to zone out and wait patiently to get back to the comforts of my couch in the moving hotel. We stopped at a small town called Lafayette, where mom and dad ...
Continuing on our mission to see all of the Oregon coast, we headed north to Heceta Head. This one is the iconic lighthouse out on a rocky promontory. Upon arrival, we gathered that each one of these lighthouses is run independently, each one a new experience in bureaucracy. This one ...
... an original resort area from the early 20th century. Quite quaint. Think we have seen al we need to see now at Newport. Toured the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse which was only used for 3 years from 1871 as it was built in a poor position. A few changes to our itinerary necessary for the next couple of days due to inclement weather. Heading south rather than east to Klamath Falls, we aren't carrying snow chains, and the weather doesn't look good there. Two days of driving to get to ...
... cave knowing they are not there but out in the ocean. It was interesting, but no sighting of sealions in the water either. Great view of a light house and some birds. Our next stop was Cape Perpetua for the view. The rangers had out great plant exibits (yes, my new found berries were there). Then she mentions the whales in the waters outside where we saw two grey whales. It seems there is a small group that stays here all summer rather ...
... people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to a new understanding
with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky and the ocean
more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for a while, leave footprints
on our hearts and we are never ever the same."

What a touching bit of wisdom....
