Monday Labor day and we took the day off from traveling and stayed a couple of days in Lincoln Oregon. This morning we went over to the ocean and the very first thing we see are seals basking in the sun. This was very exciting . The little black dots you see in the water are the seals swimming around hunting there breakfast. The beaches here are very different from Florida beaches. First dogs are allowed to roam freely and enjoy the beach as much as the people which was OK with me. You are allowed to have bonfire's on the beach they actually want you to there is so much debris that washes up it is the only way to clean it up. Bill tried to move one of the big logs but it was wedged in the sand to deep. LOL. We drove down the road about five miles to a place where you could view the whales. As soon as we got out we could see them blowing then diving it was amazing. I was not able to get pictures they were pretty far out and I was to busy just watching them. Thought about going out on one of the boats to get a closer look as you can see I wasn;t about to get on one of those boats every time they hit a wave it looked like they would disappear. Came back to our room had a salad for lunch and then went to the hot tub sauna and pool had it all to myself was nice. Bill has found a little bit of home he is relaxing in the recliner and watching Tennessee play football. Tomorrow we head on down the coast to see what else we can discover. For me I have enjoyed the coast very much but I have always loved the ocean.
