We seem to never get enough of the Oregon coastline with all the grandeur and natural beauty.



Meredith and I were off for an extended weekend to Newport. We wanted to riding some of the small out of the way back roads to get there.









Stopped in the small town of Rainbow along Hwy 128 for breakfast...





Met up with a friend, Ken, in Walterville. He showed us some wonderful back roads to avoid Springfield and Eugene... then rode along with us to the coast for some lunch.



















Ken showed us this picnic table by Alsea Falls.... It was the longest picnic table I’ve ever seen!
