Coast Bus Trip

May 4, 1974

36 passengers left the South Eugene parking lot promptly at 8:00 for the bus trip to the Coast. The day was near perfect weatherwise. We headed north to Corvallis via Peoria through lush green fields (we did no such thing—we stayed on the road. Ed.) and on to Newport where we turned north to Depot Bay. After an hour of varied activity such as seeing the aquarium, watching the boats in the bay, and shopping we returned to the Devil’s Punchbowl for a sack lunch. After lunch we drove to the Marine Science Center in Newport to see the fine displays of marine life and to learn more about the expanding marine research carried on by Oregon State University. Our next stop was the Cape Perpetua Visitor’s Center where we enjoyed a short movie and slides of coast flowers and plants before driving to the top of the cape for the fine views north and south. At Devil’s Elbow State Park we again took a coffee break while some picked up rocks and stuck their toes in the surf. Time was getting short, so we had to by-pass Darlingtonia Wayside and hurry on to the Gingerbread house for a short snack. We were in Eugene by 7, tired but happy after a long day of constant activity. Ths is a good time of the year for a trip to the coast as the countryside is beautifully green, many flowers are blooming and the weather is usually good.
