Everyone but Bailee woke up bright and early our first morning there. The girls were ready for the beach and Luken just loved that he was getting to be outside all the time.
He has also taken an interest in Makayla's scooter. He thought he was quite talented when he could get two feet up on it and balance.
The first of the wildlife we encountered. You cannot go to the coast without seeing some big green slugs.
After breakfast, we took a walk down the beach. For our first walk, we head to the right. Above is Bailee and Jeremy forging ahead as the rest of us look for shells. There were many sand dollars on this beach, but we only found a few that had not been broken by the seagulls.
We did not think to bring the stroller the first walk on the beach. Luken could only walk for so long.
Above is a picture of a something or other. I did some research when we got back and I think it is an isopod. Isopods are actually not indigenous to the Oregon coast, so they ask you to catch and freeze any specimens and then take the to the Oregon Wildlife Department. I did not know this until I had gotten home though. This one is also carrying a bunch of eggs, which is the orange stuff you see.
