Driving south from Newport to Florence confirmed that the Oregon Coast is stunningly beautiful. We had a lovely warm day with plenty of sunshine and no rain. The view was breathtaking in places, with the surf crashing against the rocks or the shore and the majestic Fir trees bearing witness.
We stopped at a rest area and were able to get a few pictures.
We drove a bit further and it got even rockier.
A rugged coastline, indeed.
We continued on to Florence, Oregon. The historic section is lined with lovely shops and friendly people. But it was the gardens that caught my eye.
