The Devil’s Punchbowl and the Yaquina Lighthouses

Between Depoe Bay and Newport lies the Devil’s Punchbowl, a beautiful bridge/cave rock formation where the sea ebbs and flows through it.  I am thoroughly intrigued.

Yaquina Lighthouse is a bit further south.  DSC_0005 (1)Yaquina Head Lighthouse

Common Murres, in from nine months on the sea, make this rock their home for the three months it takes to lay their eggs and raise their chicks. Then it’s back out to sea.

From here, the next stop is Yaquina Head and another beautiful lighthouse,

We head on to Newport where the boys get in some dog park time, then I make a stop at Walmart for supplies. Not having refrigeration and depending on an ice chest to keep some of our food cold, re-supplying happens about once a week. Ice will last in my cheapie Igloo Island Breeze for a minimum of five days due to the heavy insulation I use in and on it, so that’s not too bad, but it’s small and the block of ice takes up half the room. 🙂 Fortunately I am fine with having very few items that need refrigeration.

Thanks for coming along on our adventures!  Hugs, Shawna
