Lincoln City - by Brad

For our last vacation before school started we met up with the Bunches to head to Lincoln City for a few days.




Our boys are always early risers, so we took them to do a little early morning beach combing...

 



There was a lot of playing in the sand and running around in the surf.




One of the evenings while strolling the beach, Mike spotted something rolling out in the surf. It was a SHARK! Of course we had to run out and get closer. It was only about 3 feet long, but it was still alive (although mortally wounded). The kids (and the adults) had a blast getting close to it and touching it. Apparently it was a Salmon Shark which is closely related to the Great White and Mako sharks. This was definitely the highlight of the trip!




We went on a neat hike that included a sweet suspension bridge...




And here are a few other pictures I thought were neat enough to slap up here...
