I Love the Oregon Coast

Hello, my name's Amanda and I like dropping off the face of the planet. It feels like I haven't blogged in ages. It's bad. I will start blogging less sporadically once I get back into a normal groove, I promise.

The last two days my parents and I took a mini-vacation to the Oregon Coast.   I haven't been during the summer in who knows how long. The Oregon Coast is a extremely beautiful place, even in the winter when it's howling wind and freezing outside, really. It was beautiful and sunny when we were there this time though, which was a welcome break from the norm. Now it's picture time! - I hope you're prepared.

Funny Story Time! The water on the Oregon Coast is also extremely cold, but of course I insisted on walking right on the water edge and running away from waves. Well as I was running away from a particular wave, which actually did get me quite wet, a little boy screamed "CHICKENS!" complete with wing-flapping. His dad was laughing and the little boy ran to where the wave that got us was. It was so cute.

There's an area in Newport where they have a cage for wild sea-lions where they trap any that are injured, tangled or otherwise in need of help- and they help them and let them go again. This is always the place to be for sea-lions though and it's fun to sit and watch them. They are such characters. 

There is so much hate for seagulls, but honestly I think they are gorgeous birds and I love the variety in colors. I'm just always afraid one's going to poop on me while I walk anywhere. They kind of rule the coast. 

This is what I'll leave you with. We got to our hotel and my mom opened that cabinet and said "THIS IS EMPTY! AMANDA YOU COULD FIT IN HERE!" So what else would I do then go fold my self into the cabinet. And of course my mom would insist on taking five million pictures while my spine was being crushed.

I hope everyone's been having a good week and all of those who were affected by Hurricane Irene are safe and sound!
