Tuesday Tidbits #222 Exploring At Its Best

Adventure Time!

We had a fun week over here at Two Trails One Road. An adventure was had. The day after Easter, we flew to Eugene, Oregon, where we rented a car and drove to the Oregon Coast. It was a whirlwind of five days, but we covered a lot of ground and saw so much! I am so thankful for Sweet Man as he planned this whole trip!

This picture was from our second day on the coast at Newport Beach, Oregon. On the first day, we had nothing but rain!
This click was from our first day. No walks on the beach this day! It rained the whole day. Sorry for the glare as I took this through the car window.
Once we arrived at the Eugene, Oregon airport, I had to get my picture taken with an Oregon Duck!

Even though it was raining, it didn’t dampen our spirits. We saw wet but beautiful scenery.

The more we traveled in Oregon, the more we saw trees covered in moss or lichen.

We were amazed by how many trees were covered in moss!
Just one more! 💚

The following picture isn’t moss, but it was one of the many small waterfalls we drove by in Oregon. I treasure times like these. Even though it happened quickly, we both saw it and enjoyed the moment together.

A quick drive-by picture. We were headed for the coast, so no time to dillydally!

Our Condo

Sweet Man found an excellent waterfront condo at the beginning of our trip at Little Creek Cove in Newport Beach, Oregon. It was comfy, cozy, and it came with a beautiful view!

We stayed downstairs.
Awesome view!

Waking up to this view was incredible. We enjoyed our tea while we watched the waves roll in.

This was the view from our living room.

The Oregon Coast is known for its incredible views, rugged coast with seaside cliffs, and of course, its lush surroundings. There are lots of rocky shores that greet you with dramatic crashing waves!

A few miles North of our Condo, still in Newport Beach, was The Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It was established in 1873 and is Oregon’s tallest lighthouse.

The Yaquina Head Lighthouse.

We happened upon Devil’s Punchbowl while looking for a restaurant for dinner. While walking up to the area, you can not see anything because it’s completely hidden. Then suddenly it appears! We were astonished by how large the “punchbowl” was!

When it’s high tide, this natural wonder fills up and resembles a punch bowl. It most likely was created by two sea caves collapsing. Incredible!

We had to stop and take a picture of this yard and all it’s decorations!


The following day before leaving, we walked on the beach. There’s nothing that soothes your soul more than walking on the shore.

Fogarty Creek flows into the ocean.
Dramatic crashing waves!
Sweet Man found this strange seaweed.
It’s actually called Bull Whip Kelp. 😳

Our adventure didn’t stop at the beach on the Oregon coast, but I will save the rest of our adventure for next week’s Tidbits. There is so much more to share.
