I really love Newport.
I picked up a panda, an elephant and a Clydesdale horse at Sandcastle Toys.
I got myself a winged box kite at The Kite Company.
I almost bought myself a French Military Box Kite, but then I would have had to've surrendered to somebody.
After flying my kite on Nye Beach, I walked up to the famous Sylvia Beach Hotel, which was beautiful and awesome. I really must stay there someday. I was able to look into the Melville and the Edgar Allen Poe rooms--the latter even has a pendulum over the bed!
Between these and the aforementioned Rogue Brewery and the Oregon Coast Aquarium, I've half a mind to pitch a tent and stick around out here for some time to come.
Thus far, 25 rocks. More soon.
