I've decided that Mother Nature's favorite color is yellow. When we were in Death Valley the desert was alive with the color of yellow flowers. Now we're traveling up the northern Pactific coast and the hillsides are covered with the color of yellow flowers. Aren't they beautiful?

We also love the lighthouses that we have seen along the coast. The Cape Meares Lighthouse was a 5 mile drive from the town of Netarts where we camped one evening. (Note to self: We must remember to bring the binoculars with us when we play tourist.) From the lighthouse you can see this really huge rock with a big hole through it. So cool.

After visiting the lighthouse we stopped in Oceanside, OR for dinner at Roseanna's. Right on the ocean with beautiful views.

I decided to be brave and try something I'd never eaten before and that was sturgeon. It was okay but not something I would order again. Jim ordered the dover sole because he had never had it stuffed with crab and shrimp. He wouldn't order it again either. However, we would eat at Roseanna's again.


  1. Some day I want to drive along the northwest coast. It sure looks beautiful from your pictures.

  2. We are right behind you, heading north on 101. We leave Brookings on tuesday, with a target of picking up a friend in Portland on the 7th of June. Can you slow down enough to meet us? Porter and Vicki class of 2009...


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
