Finding The Oregon Coast

We left Mount Ranier and headed off for the first truly adventurous part of the journey. Just looking at the map, it appeared that there was nothing much on the Oregon coast and then by using the modern tools, like Google Street View, it seemed even less appealing. I wasn't absolutely certain that hotels and gas stations existed out that way. We filled up the tank in the car, grabbed some bottled water and snacks and headed down a long two lane highway to Newport, OR.
The first surprise happened as we were getting out of our car in Newport. I hadn't even locked the doors when I heard the barking of California Sea Lions.
That was the beginning of a beautiful trip down the Oregon coast. I'd say now that it is every bit as scenic as Big Sur and way less crowded.
