We left Shopko parking lot at 8 AM for our first trip of the year. As I look forward and backward, it was the best weather—some light rain, but we had full sun on the ocean during lunch. We traveled Highway 126 to Florence, with our snack and rest stop at the Gingerbread House Restaurant, where all were treated to warm gingerbread and coffee. In Florence, we drove the Old Town main street and everyone had 45 minutes to shop. Then we turned north on Highway 101 with great views of the ocean to Yachats, with lunch served at the Adobe Inn. The sun shone, so the view of the breakers was fantastic. The waves were very high. We drove north to Waldport, with a stop at the Alsea Bridge Interpretive Center. We continued north to Newport before heading inland. After Corvallis, we had our afternoon break at Hazelnut Hill, where most had ice cream and many bought nuts and other goodies. We arrived back in Eugene by 5:30. It was a great day. Trip leader was Liz Reanier; members: 17, nonmembers: 4.Members: Liz Reanier.
