Oregon Trip: Animals and Sealife

Went down to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and checked out the fishies. I don’t know what it is about the aquarium that makes me feel like a kid again. Zoos don’t quite do it for me the same way the aquarium does. Funny thing is that I don’t recollect ever really going to aquariums much when I was younger.

After the aquarium, I drove further south to Sea Lion Caves. This is the largest sea cave in the world and home to many mating sea lions. Unfortunately, there were no sea lions in the cave as it’s not the mating season. Just missed it! The cave was, however, very neat…and quite fragrant.

On the drive back to the room, I stopped by this sushi spot, which is run by this Japanese guy who lived down in Orange County and was very happy to see me. I asked if this was the only true sushi house on the coastline and he said that that might quite possibly be the case. A lot of people will come visit him; some of them even come in from Salem and Eugene. Suffice to say, the sushi was yummy!
Tomorrow I go down to Coos Bay.
