Newport, Oregon: The Ocean, The Sights, All The Fish Eaten…

Last Sunday, we were out looking for a new TV and I dragged jwa into first a Petco and then the Petsmart to meet a couple of Cat Adoption Team kitties I had been stalking on online. We met Brina, Sophie, and Phillip — all were very sweet. But, then we met Pinterest and it was all over!
