Newport, Oregon at Christmas

After picking out the most wonderful Christmas tree this year, we headed over to the Newport to spend the evening. We hit the Oregon Coast Aquarium and ended the evening eating at Mo's.  Here is a recap of our fun night over on the Pacific Coast.

The NOAA fleet was parked along the bay front while we were there.  It was a bit foggy, but it was still an interesting view.  The Coast Guard ships were cruising up and down the bay front as well.  The lights from their ships almost looked like Christmas lights.

After watching the ships move around the bay front, we headed to Mo's to have some clam chowder and hot cocoa.  I just loved how our tree looked on top of the car; so festive!

"Rain or shine, Mo's is always fine."

While at Mo's we had a few oyster shooters.  If you haven't had these, they are fab!

The Coast Guard station at Newport was all festive for the holidays.  

After Mo's we walked through the Sea of Lights at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

The entire aquarium was decorated for the holidays.

And, watched Santa scuba dive into the tanks to talk with the kids about ocean life.  

He even asked each child what they wanted for Christmas.

He sang them a few Christmas carols and answered questions.

We then headed out to the otter tank to see the otters playing.

We walked through the aquarium tunnel and looked at stingrays, rock fish, and even sharks.  All fish native to the Pacific Coast.
