(The first two days of the trip are "lost" photographically. The "roll" of film used for Melanie Harris's graduation, for our excursion along the Siletz River, and for the seals in Newport's harbor was a "phantom roll" = no film in the camera!)
No trip to Newport is complete without a trip to the waterfront. There are lots of shops and I always pick up some canned salmon.
Walks along the beach, such as Moolack Beach north of Newport are always fun even on cloudy or foggy days.
Mid-June still has some of the prettiest blooms in the nation as evidenced by these rhododendrons in my parents' backyard.
Three Rocks is north of Lincoln City at the mouth of the Salmon River. Access is via trails and a dead end road.
The front porch for the traditional "good-bye for now" shot. Notes: Jane & Tom are my parents, and Ben is my brother (Elisabeth's uncle).
