Oregon Coast: Sea Lion Caves

Sea Lion Caves are a connected system of sea caves and caverns open to the Pacific Ocean in the U.S. state of Oregon. They are located 11 miles north of Florence on U.S. Highway 101, about midpoint on the 400 miles Oregon Coast. - Wikipedia

It was a clear day, but as we drive north from the sand dunes in Florence, the weather seemed to change and gotten foggy when we got to the Sea Lion Caves. I'm not sure if it was because we were at a higher level and going into the clouds.

There is a fee to go in to view from outside above and below inside the cave. This is actually our second time visiting the attraction. It was all for our little one (who's 4-years old at the time) The admission was a bit expensive in my opinion ($14 for adults). For parking, it is free parking and there is a small lot in front of the building and more parking just across the highway. After this visit, I don't think I want to go back there again.

And this is the view of the Oregon Coast on our way back south on HWY101 to our hotel. See the difference in the weather?
