Oregon Coast Aquarium and Coast History Center

April 10, 2007

Larry Edwards was our driver, as we headed up Hwy. 99 to Avery Park in Corvallis for our morning coffee break. Because of the storm last winter, which blew down many trees, a new area has been provided at the far end of the park, where restrooms and tables are very accessible. We continued on Hwy. 20 to Newport and the Aquarium, where everyone scattered to explore their own interests. Most everyone gathered at the cafeteria about 11:30 for lunch. The food is especially good here. We left around 1pm to drive a short distance to the Oregon Coast History Center, which consists of two museums - a log cabin and a historic mansion called the 1895 Victorian Burrows House. It has a turret on its top. The house was moved there several years ago. We were divided into two groups and given tours of both museums. As we left Newport, we drove to the bayfront, where we headed for Bayshore Drive and continued on to Toledo, where we returned to Hwy. 20. The weather was almost perfect with just a little wind at the coast.

Thanks to Mary Lee Cheadle for taking reservations and to the hospitality committee for providing delicious treats at our coffee stop. Thanks also to driver Larry Edwards who took us on the backroads for a beautiful drive.
