It is absolutely beautiful in Coos Bay Oregon this morning! The sun is shining and there isn't a cloud in the sky. This is very unusual for this time of the year on the coast of Oregon and we are going to take advantage of it by doing a little crabbing before we continue on our road trip today to Vancouver Washington.
A great place to crab in this area is at the Charleston Marina. So after a little breakfast we head on over to Charleston to get our 3 day crabbing license, a couple of crab rings and two pieces of frozen chicken for our bait. Yes crabs love chicken!
As we make our way down to the docks to pick our spot for some morning crabbing we are forced to pick another spot because there are some sea lions sunning themselves right where we want to crab. They seemed very disinterested in us but I'm sure once we started pulling crab up they would have quickly become our new best friends.
The day wasn't a total loss however. We did get some crabs........................
We do make a few quick stops along the way however, it's just too pretty not to. At "Cape Perpetua" we stopped and took a look at the "Devil's Churn"
"The Chowder Bowl" in "Historic Nye Beach".
Well it's just about 9pm and we have arrived in Vancouver Washington! Our home for the next 2 weeks.
