Newport Excursion

Last week, we found ourselves tagging along with Brady as he visited his dealers on the coast. So while he was busy working, we went and had fun! Our first stop was Nye Beach in Newport. The weather was perfect! No wind, no cold and just a weensy bit of light mist. The B's tried telling me the water was even warmish, but I didn't trust their story... Good thing, too, because after wading in it for a while, they eventually fessed up that the water was pretty chilly! 
And then, we found a candy shop! They really wanted to find one, too, so this was a big thrill for them. Their Aunti Nicoley introduced them to one in Coos Bay, so I guess they think all coast towns have candy shops? What can we say - it was their lucky day!
From the candy shop to the Wax Museum, to Ripley's Believe It Or Not, and then we ended our "tour" with The Undersea Gardens. It was all super cool, and they loved every second of it! It was a great summer adventure and an awesome day. We can't wait to go back!
