vacation files: Oregon Coast

Apparently in Oregon it is not the beach or the shore... it is the Coast. And it is gorgeous. 
Enjoy a photo diary from my first day exploring the Oregon Coast... 
Brewery tours, clam chowder, fish & chips, beach front sunsets, and sea lions... oh my!
(for more picture from my Oregon vacation, follow along on Instagram @jesshereandnow)
Newport, Oregon bay

The beer selection at the Rogue Brewery, Newport Oregon
In the 42˚ F chiller room... can I just take a keg to go?
40 beers on tap... decisions, decisions!
This is his version of a candy shop... in heaven!
Checking out the fresh caught tuna for sale... this is a framer!
Mo's world famous clam chowder shop in historic Newport Bay
one of the many beautiful murals lining the streets in the historic Newport bay area
they remind me of Doug the pug... fat and happy!
There is light at the end of the tunnel... and the Pacific Ocean!
I love painted toes in the sand... my happy place!
This is our tradition... racking up our jumping pictures along the world's beaches
Since getting my fancy camera I have great candid shots of everyone else... besides me!
Pants and a long sleeve tee while standing on sand... yeaaaa this definitely isn't the beach I am used to!
I am soaking up all the 75 and no humidity weather I can (seriously my definitely of a perfect day) before venturing back to the deep South!
