Two days off from work for Esther and I on President's Day gave us the opportunity for a getaway to the Oregon Coast. The weather was amazing! We would be happy for these conditions in the summer; sunny and in the high sixties. We spent one night in Seaside and one in Newport. Seaside on Sunday was a clamor of activities with the beach and streets packed with families. Our favorite part was the promenade walk. Our hotel was on the canal, but our fourth floor balcony had a great view of the town, ocean and surrounding hills. A leisurely morning drive down the coast with an open sun roof and a picnic lunch at Depoe Bay brought us to our Newport Nye Beach Hotel. We enjoyed some more walking on the beach and the streets of Nye Beach and the Deco District. The view from the cliffside hotel absorbed the last rays of a fabulous February? day. On our way home we stopped at the Woodburn Outlet mall and each found some much needed clothes.
