We were able to wander around their cozy cottage like campus (a University of Oregon funded institution), eat a wonderful lunch with them in their dining hall, and we were able to visit the labs they're working in. Before we took a tour of campus, we went in the field with the gang, I fell behind while climbing the many rocks and didn't quite hear their presentation about field work. However, I discovered one of the most beautiful places of the Oregon coast that I've seen (I've lived here over a decade)! I envy the interns who are able to look, feel and touch such a wonderful spot in Oregon. Warning, pictures do not serve this location justice.
|The first thing my eyes were drawn to as I approached the beach, a neatly organized stack of rocks! (People enjoyed this marine reserve in a playful manner!)|
