Enjoying Life here at Seal Rock

Well, we've been here for two months now, and I must say, we're enjoying our time.  We've explored quite a bit of the area nearby. There  is lots of green - with all the trees and foliage.  And the ocean is constantly changing with it's daily tides.  We are also getting to sample plenty of fresh seafood.  In April, Linda's Mom and her friend Ron took a road trip along the California/Oregon coast and visited us for several days.  We had fun visiting with them.  Then in May, our grandson Myles stayed with us for a few days, and we're looking forward to seeing Myles, Jessica and Erik again.  Here are a few pictures of what we've been doing.

This is a view of the Cape Perpetua Overlook.  It's a nice hike, and quite a climb.

The Giant Spruce  It stands about 185 feet tall, and about 600 years old.

Plenty of fresh-off-the-boat Dungeness Crab

We enjoyed this fella at the Depoe Bay Crab Feed and Classic Wooden Boat Show  and he tasted great!!

The Marine Science Center had an "Open House" event where we had a 'behind the scene' look at all the different areas of the museum.  We talked to the staff and students and they were eager to share what they knew about marine and aquatic life.

One of my jobs is helping to get this new campsite ready for RVers.  It's a lot of fun playing with the tractor and backhoe.

These Sea Lions are often seen at the Newport Bayfront.  They make a lot of noise while they're fighting for the best place to take a nap.

There is no shortage of sand on this beach
