Newport, Oregon

Last weekend I wanted to drive down to Corvallis to the OSU campus to get a feel for the area and the parking situation (more on that later). Once in Corvallis Hubby realized it was only another 45 minutes to the ocean, so we took off for the coast.
Yoda went too!

Gloomy Oregon coast

Random day trips are the best kind of getaways!
