One of the places nearby that we explored were the unique Sea Lion Caves just north of Florence. We marveled at the Stellar Sea Lions that come here to find refuse from their routines at sea and to socialize. We meet the owners, Steve and Sue Saulbert, as they strolled through Carter Lake campground one morning with their beautiful dog Cowboy. What a special couple. We had a great conversation. Steve and Sue gave us their card which we used to get free admission to the Sea Lion Caves. I always say it just is not the place that you are so blessed to visit it is the people you meet who make it special. We have been blessed to meet so many nice folks on are travels this year.
The Pacific Ocean on the coast of Oregon as you drive up the coast on Highway 101 is a spectacular journey. We enjoyed the scenery all along the way.
