Golf and The Oregon Coast Aquarium

I'm going to combine Thursday and Friday of our trip since we didn't do much on Thursday. We slept in and got breakfast at the resort where we were staying. I found Salishan on Groupon, I bought 3 (one for each night) and it really was a great deal, especially because they came with dinning credit.
 One reason why I thought this place would be great for us was because it has a beautiful golf course. So Thursday we played golf. This was the only day it rained off and on a little bit, which was disappointing but we still had a great time.
The back nine had gorgeous views.
Afterwards we ate lunch at a cute little deli and walked around the shops at the resort. I took a nap and we just relaxed the rest of the day. Our room was really nice, it had a fireplace so we just enjoyed it.
Friday we drove south about 30 minutes to visit The Oregon Coast Aquarium. Of course we stopped to take in the sights. Above is Depoe Bay, a cute little town along the way.
We also stopped at Cape Foulweather, which had the cutest gift shop with amazing views.
Then finally we made it to the Aquarium!
My favorite part was the sea otters. They were so cute, and would swim right up to the front of the glass. They also had seals and sea lions and really cute puffins!
The passage of the deep was also really neat. They were these underwater tunnels that you could walk through and see sharks and all different kinds of fish. The Oregon Coast Aquarium is one of the top ten aquariums in America, and I'm so glad we got to go. After a busy day we drobe back to the resort and crashed!

Our last day is up next!
