Waldport to Newport Oregon Coast

Took a trip to Newport for some Walmart shopping yesterday.  What a beautiful day it was!

Seal Pups - Alsea Bay
No new pups yet

I had to check in on the harbor seals in the Alsea Bay.  I don’t see any new pups yet.

I think they usually give birth closer to the water but I wondered why this adult separated from the rest of the colony?  I’ll have to check on her again.

The Alsea Bay is so clear and pretty!  Looks like the fishermen have some competition.

Don likes to slow down on the bridge and push me out so I can take pix.  But I convinced him I’d walk from the north wayside this time.

Beaver Creek is popular, with our Oregon Coast campers, for canoeing and kayaking.
