Days 8&9 - Portland and OR Coast

We made it back to Portland for the night, enabling us to try the vegan poutine @ Potato Champion and borrow someone's car to drive to the OR coast. 

Started our Day 9 with brunch @ Juniors (Portland; vegan french toast & fennel/potato hash) and ended up at Aunt Mary's Toaster Bistro & Filthy Cabbage Sex Shop in Lincoln City  Yeah, how do you pass that up, right?  It is, indeed, "the coolest place in town" in Lincoln City. They do not lie. I had a virgin cocktail (they all come with a cherry) and they came up with a new appetizer idea when we were there ("foreskins" - 4 potato skins).  Aunt Mary is well worth meeting in person and her kitsch collection is a sight to behold!  (I am not sure I really needed to look in the barrel though.)

They recommended the Historic Anchor Inn, which didn't disappoint. We stayed in the Sick Bay Room.

This morning we headed out for a scenic coastal drive and after a few short shoreline stops, we have rolled into Newport's Nye Beach.

It's been cold and I've spent a lot of time in jeans, black canvas oxfords, cardigans and scarves.
