Lagniappe (A Little Extra)

The husband and I scheduled an extra day in Portland after the Summit to do some more sightseeing. We decided to rent a car and drive to Newport down on the coast. After fueling stops at Stumptown Coffee and Voodoo Doughnuts, we were off.

We visited both the Aquarium and OSU's Hatfield Research Center and then went over to the beach to get a little west coast sand between our toes.

I'm submitting this one to Skull-a-Day:
This one looks like a UFO:

Okay this one is sideways and I can't get it fixed (*shakes fist at Blogger picture upload*), but it's cool anyway, right?

I had no idea just how much I'd enjoy Portland (and the coast of Oregon). It is like finding a whole new passion. You lucky Ducks or lucky Beavers, however the case may be.

We love our coast too. :) When we lived in Corvallis (go Beavers!) we would go often to the marine science center and the aquarium. Our kids loved it! Glad you had a good time at SS09 and enjoying Portland and Oregon. :)

Looks like you and your hubby had an awesome time on your vacation. I definitely want to come back and spend more time in and around Portland.
