We did a ton of stuff on our 5 day Honeymoon! We were the ultimate tourists, so much so that more than once I had to say “No! I just want to lay in bed and watch TV (keep in mind we don’t have TV, so this was the ultimate treat!)”
I took like 600 pictures and 3 hours worth of video…lol! So I’m going to narrow them down to my to 10 favorite things we did in Newport Oregon.
We rented a cute little car for the 8 hour drive to Newport. We ate Puffy Cheetos and played Road Bingo. The weather was really rainy, and then scary foggy along the actual coast. Its a looooong drive.
We ate tons of seafood, Clam Chowder, Pumpkin flavored desserts and taffy! Plus a bunch of Cheese at the Tillamook Cheese Factory!
Most of these were in the historic part of Newport, but there were also some at the Yaquina Museum and the Newport Aquarium!
Mr. and Mrs Gaunt…snuggling…
One thing Mr. Gaunt and I have in common is our serious love of Giftshops. We even bought a “pressed penny passport” for all the smashed pennies we made at all the giftshops.
The beach was right out our hotel room. Amazing morning, noon, and night.
This is off our balcony….sigh.
The Yaquina Head is the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. We hit up the museum, the beach, and got a button for climbing all the way to the top! First lighthouse for both of us.
We were really into flashing our “bling”
