During our trip to Oregon over Thanksgiving we took Kathleen to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time. Calvin's home town is only 20 minutes from the coast and our hotel was in Newport Bay. The coast there is rocky, cold and windy. So it was just a quick trip to see and touch the water then run back to the car to get warm. There is a beautiful Yaquina lighthouse on a rock ledge just up the road from where we're at.
