The next morning after breakfast we walked down to the beach to check it out.
Darwin was very excited to run on the beach, though a little nervous about all the fog.
Jason and Megan decided to climb some rocks to check out the view from above, and Darwin was so upset she was stuck on the sand.
She paced back and forth and cried and whined. It was pathetic. Finally she walked around and found a spot low enough she could jump up.
Of course when it was time to get down, Darwin was a little freaked out about that too, and it took a bit of time for her to be willing to jump down the way she jumped up.
We took a walk down the beach, but couldn't see much due to the fog.
We headed into Newport for the afternoon, and after some beer and gin tasting at Rogue headed to the old town to walk around. There was a pier that overlooked an area with lots of seals.
All the barking of the seals scared Darwin, and she didn't want to set foot on the pier. It took a few tries but she finally did it.
The next day we headed to another stretch of beach. It was pretty empty so we got to play some fetch, which Darwin will do about 3 times before she stops.
We got a nice "family" picture...
As we walked down the beach some lazy owner didn't pick up their dogs poop, and it got stepped in. So while I attempted to bury it so no one else could step in it, Darwin supervised Jason's shoe cleaning.
I found a crab claw on the beach and had some fun "crushing Darwin's head" (Anyone remember that from Kids in the Hall? see the video here)
We walked a bit further, then headed back. It was going to be another long drive home and so we headed out. Darwin was pooped from all the excitement of the weekend.
