Day2 -Oregon Coast Road Trip

Today was the longest drive-day of our trip. We went from Port Orford to Lincoln City, stopping for lunch at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. It was a little slice of Scotland with the weather simulating the highlands perfectly. They don't allow golf carts, making the Scotland comparison even more authentic. If we were golfers this would be paradise. Then on to Florence and Newport. Both of these towns have a lively old section that caters to tourists, but Newport is an active, working port with docks and fish processing right in old town. The drive north from Newport along a  rugged, narrow cliffside road was made a bit more exciting as the skies opened up to a major rainstorm. One last stop before arriving at The Inn at Spanish Head was Depoe Bay. The Bay, affectionately called Devils Punchbowl was churning and boiling and basically living up to it's name. We spied a place we will one day return to that looked amazing - Whale Cove Inn, Depoe Bay.

Rainforest Arts in Langlois - Lots of really good artists represented here.
