We took a jaunt up to Newport and down to Tillicum Campground today.
The rain subsided so it was a good day for seeing wildlife and the sunset.
This Great Egret has been hanging out on the salty side of Eckman Lake lately. We were finally able to pull over without disturbing it so we could take some pix.
We spent a couple hours volunteering in the Family Search Center in Newport. After that and a little Walmart Christmas shopping, we headed south again.
We didn’t have time to stop to enjoy the view so I snapped this photo as we crossed the bridge across Yaquina Bay. There’s a big boat out there!
We had a little business at Tillicum Campground. Don could tell I was tapping my toe while the sun was getting close to setting.
When I threatened to run off with my camera he decided he was ready to go too.
So we watched the sunset together and he advised me when to snap. 🙂
There were only 2 campers in Tillicum tonight. For being right on Hwy 101, Tillicum is very quiet in the off-season. It has 7 electric/water sites.
