Last Monday was my 67th birthday and we headed for the Oregon Coast. We spent two nights at the Mill Casino in North Bend / Coos Bay. On the way over to the coast we stopped at Spirit Mountain Casino and I played in a slot tournament. I was sure that I would win because it was my birthday, but no such luck. We gambled in the evening. The next morning we headed farther south and spent the day in Bandon. It was overcast, but a perfect temperature after the heat we have been experiencing. We gambled again in the evening, and both of us did pretty good. I hit a jackpot, and came home with winnings. On Wednesday we took our time going home and stopped to enjoy the ocean. It was a wonderful sunny day. We saw lighthouses, sea lions, very unusual birds, and some beautiful ocean beaches.

The light house at Yaquina bay was open and restored to look as it had when in use.

At the Yaquina Light House there was an very interesting information center that told about sea life, birds an animals of the coastal area, and light houses.

I love that part of the Oregon Coast. Did you happen to find Sea Acres Park near Coos Bay? It has a spectacular garden and a wonderful beach front.
