Hanging out at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse on our first day on the coast was one of my very favorite memories. Along with covered bridges, lighthouses are top on my list of favorite things to see. We got to hang out at the tide pools for a while, throw rocks, marvel at the views, spotted a whale, toured the lighthouse and climbed all the stairs to the top. Our kids had meltdowns due to no naps and that was our cue that we needed to drive and get something to eat. We stopped to see Devil's Punchbowl and then went into Lincoln City for pizza at Gallucci's. We were all happier after that. :)
