Lincoln City, Oregon
Mo's famous clam chowder & home baked bread
We spent our New Years in Lincoln City, Oregon which is a quiet town on Highway 101. The beaches in Oregon are grey, generally overcast, and flushed with waves from the cold, salty Pacific Ocean. Our beaches are clean, quiet, and if you get up early enough to go for a walk you can find yourself some beautiful seashells, and solace.
As in most sleepy ocean side towns, Lincoln City has some small diners, shops, and restaurants. Mo's is a local favorite and they are known for their clam chowder. We went there for lunch to help stave off our NYE fatigue and ate heaps of home baked bread with clam chowder. So delicious!! We sat in the brief rays of sunlight, sipped our coffee, and enjoyed our view of the bay. I also found these quaint nautical signs in the restaurant lobby. I wanted the 'bar' one but then realized I don't have a bar, nor anything that resembles one, and in an effort to not spend $ on things I don't need, didn't make the unwarranted purchase.
We also went to a local candy shop and picked up some chocolates and taffy. No pictures of these because let's just say they didn't last long enough for me to get my camera out. Let this stand as my formal apology to anyone who was hoping to get some treats from the beach...they didn't make it back. Whoops!!
