D Sands & River in the Lincoln City area.
It's a common sight to see people flying kites here.
On this beach (D Sands) the shortest river meets the Pacific Ocean.
The weather truly was amazing--it felt like summer and I was ready for that:)
We stopped by Siletz Bay where I've stayed in the past.
This beautiful bay meets the ocean at this spot. At night one can see the lights of motels and Mo's (a popular restaurant on the coast) on the water of the bay and hear the surf. We met a really nice family here who were fishing.
This is one of the main reasons I wanted to visit this part of Oregon's coast (of course the great weather forecast was a BIG one too). This is the Siletz Bay National Refuge. I was disappointed that you cannot enter it except for a few times in the year, but we managed to get some photos from nearby areas.
Close by the Refuge is a great pottery shop and glassblowing studio for those who like those things (which I do) and we passed a lot of beautiful art galleries. Best of all, there was a view of mountains (and you all know what I think of mountains!)
