Our Five Year Anniversary - Second Post: Newport!

This post is a continuation of this post, Jonathan and I's long weekend to celebrate our five year anniversary! After leaving Cheshire we headed to Newport and went straight to the aquarium. The aquarium is one of "our" places and we usually get there once or twice a year. It's just so fun! The exhibits are always really neat and informative. The current exhibit is "The Sea & Me," which was pretty cute!

As usual, we oohed and aahed over everyone and saw our favorites, the puffins, the rockfish, the Japanese spider crabs, the talbots, the sea nettles, the octopus, and more! It was a nice day out, as well. The perfect temperature! After the aquarium we headed to our yurt to get settled in and then headed out for a nice dinner. The next day we got up and headed to Cafe Stephanie in Nye Beach, one of our favorite places to eat in Newport! After a delicious brunch we walked waaaayyyy down the beach and then all the way back. It was nice to wear Artoo out a bit before the long car ride home!

All in all, it was a wonderful couple of days off in a row, something neither Jonathan nor I have had for months! So it was nice to see him for multiple days in a row and to see his family, as well! I look forward to at *least* another five years together. ;o)

One of my favorite parts of our trip was getting this picture taken at the aquarium. Five years is the traditional stingray anniversary! :o)
