details~

we had a lovely time in newport, and i thought i'd share some of the little details that made the trip great ... in photo form, of course.

our room

Photobucket

this is a model of the same lighthouse that i posted a pic of yesterday. (the shells were found on the beach by moi.)
our room was decorated with a lighthouse theme.

they kept plants much better than i've ever been able to ~ must be the fresh sea air.
watering them probably helps too. O_O

used bookstores

Photobucket

we only managed to hit about 3-4 or so ... this one's the cutest. there was one in lincoln city that's actually called "robert's bookstore" ... cool name, but we didn't like that one as much.

restaurants

Photobucket

this is a menu from one of the cute places we visited ~ we had great luck finding little mom-and-pop places with reasonably priced, good food run by interesting people with great stories.

critters

i ♥ seagulls!

Photobucket

the seals were pretty cool too ~ we hiked down to a beach where they rest a lot ~ we saw a baby, though i didn't get any clear pics of it. :(
ask me sometime & i'd be happy to show you lots of blurry ones!!! :)))

my foot

i took lots of walks on the beach, climbed on rocks ... stairstepped to the top of the tallest lighthouse in oregon... yippeee! yeah, my foot bothered me a fair bit, but i'm just super excited to be able to do those things at all!

Photobucket

this is one of the times i got stranded on a too-small rock, venturing further than i should have into the incoming tide in the name of art.
but ... it was from that rock that i got this pic:

a smattering of these are also on my flickr.

Oh my goodness! The pics are amazing, and it looks like you and Joel had an equally amazing time. So glad you were able to get away for awhile. Thanks for your friendship and support, Lani!

Love, Heidi :)
