Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast

 

On a recent trip to Pier 101 for dinner with my daughter’s Kelsey, Kendra and Kendra’s husband Josh, and my husband Scott, we devoured some great seafood, starting with an appetizer of Steamer Clams.  Scott is a good one for giving the waitress a hard time. When she arrived at our table with our drinks and soup, Scott was busy talking and didn’t acknowledge the fact that the waitress was piling up the fresh cracked pepper on his chowder.  I finally nudged Scott, who was surprised to see a small mountain of pepper on his chowder.  We all got a good chuckle and Scott kept a better eye on the waitress for the rest of the evening.  Around the table we ordered the Crab Stuffed Shrimp, Seafood Fettuccini, a Shrimp Po’ Boy and the Brie Salmon.  We all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere at the Pier is rustic and inviting.  Plan on at least a 15 minute wait and make sure you get your name on the list for a table.  The wait is worth the time, the food here is moderately priced, good portions and fun, friendly service.

After dinner we drove through a new subdivision Olivia Beach, and enjoyed looking at the community.  It featured several beautiful homes, a common area with a volleyball net, BBQ area, community bikes and a gazebo.

My family and I love the the beach.  For me this love started when I was very young and my grandparents took me to the beach to play in the sand.  I still love to play in the sand and although my castles aren’t prize worthy works of art, we have mastered fish, turtles and several a very realistic octopus.

We also stopped at Canyon Creek rest area and walked along beach and took a few photos.  Be sure to visit Lincoln City on your next trip to the Oregon Coast.

Thanks Lori- I love Brookings too.  It is so different than the northern coast.  The weather there is terrific and you have one of the best High School dance teams I have ever seen perform!

That's absolutely  beautiful, its been so long since I have seen the ocean. The largest body of water in my area is what locals call the original west coast... the Mississippi River!

Leslie, I LOVE the West Coast!!! I am so homesick for the ocean and all its beauty and tranquility. I have been living in Ohio (on the lakeshore) for the last 8 years and am happy to say I will be headed back West come Spring. I'm a tugboat Captains daughter raised with the ocean in my life in WA. Mostly Oceans shores, Westport, Longbeach and YES, Lincoln city to Arcadia (not sure of the spelling) but northern CA. The pictures are BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face.

Bob - Thanks so much.  Good to see you here! 

Bryant - As a photographer you know how difficult beach sunsets are!

Bill - It truly is a beautiful coastline

Mary- I have extended family on the Mississipi!

NJ- Longbeach and Ocean Shores are a couple of my favorite places in Washington.  I learned how to dig razor clams at Longbeach with my grandparents! What fun!  I am glad you enjoyed the photos.

Hey Leslie, I live in Depoe Bay and my office is in Lincoln City.  I specialize in financing coastal properties.  You should stop by the office next time you come through and say hello.  We are right on the way to Pier 101.  If you ever decide to drive a bit further you have to try Tidal Raves in Depoe Bay.  It is ocean front and has amazing food.  Reservations are recommended though so you'll have to plan ahead.  Thanks for putting the word out about how great Lincoln City is!
