Heceta, Camping, Newport, Aquarium!

We just got home yesterday from a fun vacation trip. We went camping for two nights at the coast with my sister and family and then we stayed one night in Albany so we could check out Salem. I'm going to post about the camping and coast first and then do a separate post about Salem. We reserved a yurt at Beverly Beach State park and were able to check out some places around Newport.

The kids are all ready to hit the road.

The first place we stopped was the Heceta lighthouse which has recently been renovated. It was really fun taking a tour of the lighthouse.

 Next we arrived at our campground and after dinner headed to the beach.

After the aquarium we decided to head to Nye beach. On the way we discovered a park that had the biggest slide ever.

The next day we went to Lincoln city and then headed over to Salem. Buttercup was done with beaches at this point.
