Spring Break, Adventure #2

On Friday of Spring Break we took our second adventure: a day trip to the Coast! It was cloudy & rainy as we came down out of the Coast Range, but after our stop to buy buckets & shovels, the sun was peeking through! By the time we reached the Whale Watching Center in Depoe Bay the sun was out & stayed out for the remainder of the day!

The Whale Watching Center was a great place to start our search for whales as they were very helpful in telling us where to look for spouts & to tell us that what we saw was in fact a whale spouting!

Our second stop was Boiler Bay for more whale watching

One of the volunteers had a box of whale toys & Ezra was in heaven!

At one point the coastguard came out because the volunteers had been worried about the possibility of a whale being stuck in a net. I’m not sure if they found anything, but it was fun to see the helicopter.

The last stop on our whale watching tour was the Inn at Spanish Head. It was a great spot & the volunteers were super friendly & so encouraging, telling us about local opportunities to foster Ezra’s love of sea animals!

The kids especially liked seeing this guy so close up!

After a stop at the Outlets came the kids favorite time: playing on the beach!!!

They LOVE playing in the sand & running into water

At the suggestion of family, we went for dinner at HWY 101 Burger! The kids had fun ‘playing’ with the arcade game.

The days of our kids sharing a meal are going to be ending soon, but we’ll hold on to it as long as we can!

After a DELICIOUS meal, the kids got to sign the furniture, which they thought was SO fun!

We ended our beach day with dairy queen blizzards in the car parked with a great view of the ocean! All in all, a perfect day!
