Xeriscaping OUR YARD

You are thinking why in the world would you dig up this nice yard. We live in one of the most beautiful regions in the West. It is also one of the fastest growing areas in the country. With natural precipitation less than 5 inches during the April through October growing season, consideration of water use for our landscapes is very important. The water resources of our region are shared by all, and as such we each have a responsibility to use it wisely. The typical resident uses over 50% of the water they use annually, outside for landscaping. Landscapes add value, beauty and livability to our homes and keeping them WaterWise is a critical part of being a good steward in this incredible region. We all need to become WaterWise partners in order to protect our water resources for our grandkids. So that said this is a daily recap of our personal journey to help our environment.

Day 3:


Day 4:  We Advertised on Craigs List free sod-within 10 minutes we had 5 people that wanted all of it. yay!!!  98 degrees today YIKES and a broken sprinkler pipe oh well!


Day 5: Jeff is feeling better today as he does not have to haul off to the dump all of this                    sod and the cost would have been expensive. So far $0.00 expenses.

Day 6: Rest Day, Jeff is bushed so stay tuned for removing the sod from the parking strip, possibly on day 7-see you then.



Newport Bay Aquarium

Oregon Coast Aquarium

Visiting the Oregon Coast Aquarium gives you a firsthand fun and knowable experience of the ocean and aquatic life. Some of the highlights were the sea otter and seal exhibits, arriving just in time to get to enjoy the feeding and performances. Seals can get up to 6 feet tall and weigh over 300 pounds and eat 15 pounds of assorted sea food a day (WOW) , yet they  seem so effortless in the water. Like a toddler, their attention span is very short less than 10 minutes.

The aquariums were amazing, with glass tunnels making you feel like you were walking on the bottom of the ocean.

Free car and RV parking is available on site; parking spots are a brief walk from the entrance.

Entrance  Fees are  Seniors $19.95, Adults $22.95, Young Adults $19.95, Child 3 to 12 yrs old $14.95, Infants FREE.

So Until The Next Adventure FROM JUST AROUND THE BEND CHEERS ♥♥♥♥♥♥
