10/6/2009 - Newport, OR - Oregon Coast Aquarium

We left Salem and arrived at the Newport Elks lodge at about noon. We got set up and headed into town to try a bowl of Mo's Original clam chowder. It was very good!
After lunch, we drove south on Hwy 101 and toured the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

They had numerous exhibits of some very unusual fish.

and a moray eel.

some rays


and feeding time for the sea lions and harbor seals.

We would have really enjoyed seeing the sea otter exhibit, but it was unavailable due to repairs this week. Overall, the aquarium was one of the best we've ever visited. The photos just don't do it justice and it was well worth the stop.
