About Me

I am a 45 year husband and dad, currently adjusting to life back in the United States after living in Italy for a little over two years. I love spending time with my family, cycling, model railroading, mosaics and watching TV and movies.

Day at the Coast

We decided to make one last trip to the coast yesterday. It was a cloudy day, but not too cold overall. We drove out to Newport and decided to visit the aquarium one last time. The Noel's were kind and gave us two passes. We enjoyed our usual favorite exhibits, the sea otters, Passages of the Deep and the seals and sea lions.
We had lunch at the Rogue brewery. Katrina loves their beer cheese soup.
After lunch we walked out on the pier to look at the bay bridge and Yaquina bay. Its hard to believe we will not be visiting the Pacific ocean for two years.
We also spent some time watching the ocean from a lookout near Nye Beach. It was too chilly and breezy down on the beach for a nice walk.
Now our last week in Oregon begins. It will be a busy one filled with movers, Katrina leaving, cleaning the house, carpet cleaning and finally, Brandon and I leaving on Saturday.
