With the high surf warnings at the coast on my birthday, I decided to come up with an alternative plan. We went out and hiked at Mike Miller, and took a peek at the beach (while staying up on the dunes for safety), and then, since it had been forever since either me or my mom had been to the Oregon Coast Aquarium, we headed over there. (Did you know you get into the Aquarium for free on your birthday?! I didn't before this year!)
Not pictured are the otters (who we got to see get fed, which was adorable and fun, since they did some positive reinforcement training with them during feeding time), seals, sea lions, octopus, sharks, various fish, treasure ships, etc, that were all there and fun to see, but hard or impossible to get a good photo of.
