We headed off and found Newport which was very pretty (and we visited our favourite Wal-Mart) - just past the town the sun broke out and we pulled into a State Park (South Beach) where we walked along the beach. There were a bunch of surfers in the car-park with a great collection of dogs.
We were feeling pretty good at this point but listeners....after Newport the Oregon coast kinda loses it
We drove on with lovely sunny weather, albeit that it was low 60s outside. We eventually got to Coos Bay - which is a dump but we needed to find somewhere - Motel 6 as it turns out. It's OK nothing special. It was still very sunny outside and we couldn't face 8 hours in our room - so we went for a walk. There were some nice houses off the 101 up the hill but really the place is a dump.
Evening meal was a Dominos pizza and an excellent bottle of Fetzer that we'd picked up at Wal-Mart for $6.
