Anna’s Coast Gallery

We took our “mini-vacation” last weekend—a two-day trip to the Oregon coast. Anna brought along her camera and took some photos.

Our first stop Sunday morning was Cape Perpetua.

Then, after a early lunch in Yachats,  we arrived at the Oregon Coast Aquarium around noon.

It’s hard to take pictures through glass in the dark, but she did pretty well.

Even when the otters didn’t cooperate.

We stayed in Newport that evening, visiting the waterfront before dinner.

The Yaquina Head Lighthouse was our last stop before we started our drive inland.

All in all, it was a perfect start to Anna’s Spring Break.
