Destination, Cape Arago State Park, Oregon

Today Bill and I took a short, little day trip, outside of the park. Our destination was, Cape Arago State Park, here in Oregon. But first, we just had to stop off at Cap’n Jacks Crab Shack in Coos Bay. We read about this little place on-line, and wanted to see for ourselves if it was as good as it is advertised to be…

 

When we arrived, at 12:00 noon today, Cap’n Jack himself was just opening the door and welcomed us in.

And when I say Cap’n Jack, that is for real… He actually, owns the place, and he is the Captain of the fishing boat that goes out to catch a lot of the seafood that supplies a lot of local restaurants. He has his own boat, and a full crew. We know that for sure, because while we were there, several other restaurant owners, that surround Cap’n Jacks ,came in to put in their orders for the next week…

The next picture is of what Cap’n Jack told us is a rock crab. He said when it’s in the ocean it looks just like a rock..

And of course, they have fresh crabs for sale in their showcase for you to purchase and take home to cook..

Bill/Bro had a clam chowder bread bowl that he said was the best HE ever had, even better than what we had in San Francisco.

I had the fish tacos, Yum, Yum, but only because they said crabs would not be ready for a while, and we wanted to get on our way…

After lunch, we stopped off at Sunset Beach, to check out the tide pools. We were able to collect some feathers on the beach, but we were not able to really get to the tide pools. Or at least we didn’t see how we could get there…

Moving on, we made our way to Cape Arago State Park. Oh, my, it was just breathtaking to Bill and I. I talked to our daughter, Shantel, who is totally blind, on the phone today, and tried to explain what all we saw today, and of course, as her mother, it always brings tears to my eyes when I see this kind of beauty, and know I don’t really have the words to help her understand what she can’t see..

We could hear the sea lions barking, barking, barking, from these rocks… But I couldn’t get a close enough picture, because some of this area is closed off due to sea-lion pupping season..  When I told our daughter, Shantel ,about the sea lions, she wanted to know if we could pet them… It’s just so hard to explain what we see, and what she never will..

Driving home we took the “seven devil’s” road. It was beautiful as well…

Another beautiful day. Another reason Bill/Bro and I are so thankful to be here… And, I’m still being told… “you ain’t seen nothing yet”…

Stay Tuned!

    Oh gosh…I’m so happy that you two are experiencing the amazing beauty within this state. And yes, there is still so much for you to see…thus the reason for OUR return to see MORE. You need to read up on the tide pools. You have to be there during low tide, so you need to get that schedule. Unfortunately when we were there the timing was always during the night time, thus our reason for not seeing the amazing beauty within these pools…thus again our reason to return, ha! So school up on that…and take it in. It truly is one of the most amazing part of our USA that you must experience. But yes, you still aint seen nothing yet. There’s so much more of the coast to explore…and it’s also timing at sunset…or sunrise…and I realize you just got there. Oh, girl…I’m just thrilled for you both! Love and hugs…and so can’t wait to share in all this beauty together. xoxoxo

      Thanks for the info. We will “school up” on the low tides. We are also planning to go to the beach at sunset this week so I can get some pictures of all that beautifulness… And, of course, the sunrise as well… We have done a lot already and we have only been here 12 days…Everyday is so exciting and brings something new to see. Counting the days, and still collecting feathers and rocks.. Love and hugs. XoXo
