Lovin' Hwy 101

The Yaquina Bay Bridge has to be the nicest bridge we've seen so far.

Here in the Northwest were everything seems larger, we found the world's smallest navigable harbor. That's it, the whole bay:

Not far from the smallest harbor is the world's largest sea cave. From hwy 101 this looks to be pretty commercialized, but once we went down inside we were impressed with its size and natural beauty. The elevator took us down 20 stories to the cavern floor which is just above sea level. Lucky for us, there were two sea lions, though at times there are hundreds when the weather is bad. This time of year there are usually none.

From inside the cave we could look a half mile north to see the Heceta Head Lighthouse. Again we were lucky, as we were leaving the cave the fog rolled in and we couldn't see a thing.
