A Summer Visit to the Oregon Coast Aquarium


We spent a couple of enjoyable days on the Oregon Coast in early August.

The sun came out on the first day, providing for a very pretty sunset.

On the second day we visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium at Newport. The exhibits and shows were very well done.

And, we got to spend some quality time with my Montanan cousin and his extended family.

  1. Dazzling photos, John. Some real treasures here because puffins and guillemots, for example, in the wild are nearly impossible to capture at close range. Also loved the jellyfish and anemones, and close-ups of the marine mammals too.
