Oh, so you know about the new Subway in Waldport, then, LOL ;-)
Let's see, for the central coast there is Restaurant Beck north of Newport:
Have you tried Nana's Irish Pub yet - if you like Irish pub food, that is? Can't remember when Lucky Elephant Thai opened in Newport.
That is all I can think of off hand.
Thanks, half-Brit. Dang, I *really* need to get to the coast. :-(
Subway? Against our better wishes, we really had to let that one go, much too upscale and pricey for us. :(
Heidi's in Yachats is closed until February and, much as we'd like to, cannot hang around that long. (Heidi? Italian? "Sound of Pasta"?)
Luna Sea and Drift Inn in Yachats still quite good and down-home.
One of our travel "problems" is that a 30 mile journey takes much of a day as we explore new roads, birdwatch, search for whales, etc. As a result, we rarely time our meals to coincide with the better restaurantgs. Woahink is a beautiful park, never saw it before.
Bridgewater, in Florence; great salmon sandwich and a 3 specie fried fish dish with fries and coleslaw and dark beers.
Any time of year, the OR coast is cool. We have seen dozens of California Sea Lions (and Harbor Seals) w/o enjoying the olfactory delights of Sea Lion Caves.
Wish you all were here.
Oh, you are here!
Where's Syrah with her coastal restaurant "experience" when we need her?
It's stil blowing, rainy. Newport bayfront accessible, but street partially torn up as they replace just about everything below ground; should be done by June. Nana's? We pulled up, right behind her license plate. As she left her restaurant. Saw us, asked if we wanted in. Unfortunately, closed, Tuesday. Nice lady. Stephanie Cafe at Nye Beach; food and price, quite good, waitress, however, should learn that eye contact is really a good thing.
Surprisingly many sea lions due, apparently, to the high tides experienced here.
Oh dear, yes Nana's is closed on Tuesdays :-(
Some of the sea lions are interlopers from CA. About 1,800 of them have disappeared from the San Francisco bay. The experts say they are following their normal food sources (herring I think) which are moving north, possibly because the El Nino is setting up.
SF Chronicle is on the case...
