While on the Oregon Coast we decided to check out Sea Lion Caves, a tourist attraction built around the largest naturally formed underground cavern in America that is home to – you guessed it – local sea lions.
While life on the Oregon Coast can be carefree and relaxing, a sobering reality is that much of it lies in tsunami hazard zones. It’s common for hotels and motels around the world to display fire evacuation maps in each room. On the Oregon Coast they go further by providing maps to safety zones on higher ground should a tsunami head towards land.
Today has been a pretty busy day, by relaxing holiday standards. After breakfast we headed south a couple of hours, before heading back up towards Yachats (I’ll share posts about our activities soon). Several stops were made, including this one at Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint.
