We went down to the Port of Newport. It is a historic part of Newport where a lot of fishing is still done. It was so quaint.
It is raining again so we had our umbrellas with us again. Oliver, Henry, Randy and I.
The one man on the boat is bringing in huge Tuna. So interesting.
There are Sea Lions on one part of the dock. They are really noisy.
We next went to Under Sea Gardens.
There was a diver that did a demonstration for us. She brought up several fish to show us.
The tank was full of local fish and so interesting.
Next we went to the Wax Museum.
And then to the Ripley's Believe it or Not!
Newport is famous for the Yaquina Bay Bridge. Awesome looking.
It was still a little rainy so we took the boys to the movie "The Book of Life". It was a cute movie. We were the only ones in the theatre. That is a good thing about the matinee.
The rain stopped for awhile and Henry wanted to go out for a walk. We walked part way down on the Beach Trail. He loved walking on the rocks and the logs. The ocean was at high tide and very wild still with all the wind. But it was a great walk.
Back at the Condo, Oliver putting together a 1,000 piece puzzle and Henry watching a show. We are enjoying taking care of the boys and getting better acquainted with them.
It is really rainy and windy today in Newport. The waves on the ocean are awesome and large. I am glad I am not out in a boat.
The flowers are still beautiful here. Lots of colors.
We have just Henry here with us today. Melanie has gone to Florida to a teachers conference; Ben is at work; and Oliver is at school. We went outside for a little fresh air. It was raining so we went for a walk in the rain.
We went down to the playground for awhile.
Then we stopped at the Club House and played some inside games. It is fun being with Henry.
We were walking out by the Condo and saw a whale out in the water. I hurried and ran back to get the camera and the big lens. Came back and realized the battery was exhausted. So Randy ran back to the room and got a new battery plus the binoculars. Looking through the binoculars we realized it was just a rock, but we were sure excited for awhile.
Henry really liked playing on the playground equipment.
There was also an old boat set up for the kids to play in. Henry liked driving the boat.
