Sunshine, snakes and the sea shore

After checking the weather report, we piled into the Subaru and headed West. Once we hit Newport, we had a classy picnic in the back of the car and then headed out to explore the Oregon Aquarium.

We saw snakes and other scaly creatures in their swamp exhibit and then enjoyed other fishy things throughout. We lounged about in the shark tunnel and gazed in wonder at the jelly fish.

Since the sun was shinning and the rain was far away, the kids got to play and we were able to enjoy beautiful views of the bay. (Ha, that rhymes. I'm a poet)

As we were leaving, the fog rolled in so quickly and thickly that we couldn't see parts of the bridge as we crossed it. It was amazing and kind of creepy:)
