Heading S on 101

Sunday, September 03, 2006
We headed out to Lincoln City & Newport today to try something different. We got a late start because of the session last night and were pretty tired all day. I don't think I'll ever head down that way again unless I'm on my way to CA. The beaches were dirty, and the communities seemed to be dominated by the corporate world. There were small strips of independently owned businesses, but they seemed to be run-down, especially in Newport. Newport was pretty awful on the bay-front. Probably the most interesting aspect was the sea-lions, although I didn't care for the huge numbers branded onto their backs. The coast-line further north seems so much nicer, and communities like Cannon Beach are pleasant to visit every time with their nice store-fronts & galleries. There isn't even a Starbucks in Cannon Beach--the community there seems to be completely run by locals.
