The total solar eclipse, happening on Monday, August 21st 2017, has been a topic of interest for many years. It’s presumed to be the most viewed eclipse ever, in part due to blogs like this. It’s also happening during the summer, with optimal viewing areas from many large cities across the United States. The best part about this upcoming eclipse? It’s going to be starting right here in Oregon, just two minutes north of Depoe Bay at the Boiler Bay Scenic Viewpoint Area, also known as Government Point.
At precisely 10:15:56.5 AM PDT, you’ll want to be in this exact location to watch the solar eclipse begin. Bring some snacks and cold drinks while you wait, along with sunscreen. Seeing as it will be August, summer will be in full swing and you’ll be thankful for the refreshments. Look around you before the solar eclipse is set to happen. In the sky surrounding you, you’ll be able to witness a sunset in every direction, because that is essentially what’s happening with the solar eclipse. If you are prone to light sensitivity, see about picking up some Mylar eclipse glasses or a #14 welder’s glass to witness this amazing event with comfort. Also, and maybe this goes without saying, but hit the restroom before the big event so you’re sure to catch the entire thing!

It’s that time of year again! Long summer nights, breezy days on the beach, and warm sunshine licking at your ice cream cone. Summer weather is a great reason to come down to the Oregon coast, soak up some sun, and leave your stress behind. But what about when you forget to pack that most necessary item for your long trip away from home? We’ll show you a list of 15 commonly forgotten vacation items and offer advice on how to help you remember them!
Make a list – The first thing to do when preparing for vacation packing is to make a list of everything you need to bring. Once an item has made it into the car or luggage, cross it off your to-do list. Make sure the list is in a place that is frequented and can’t be lost. Try the fridge, or write it on a white board if you have one.
Bathroom items – Toothbrushes, razors, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, floss, toiletries, soap, etc. These items are some of the most forgotten items on vacations, and it makes sense. These items are used on such a daily basis that they become a normal part of our routine. And since we leave them in the bathroom, as that’s the only place they are used, no wonder we forget them. Hmm. At least this stuff is cheap to buy and can be found anywhere!
Vision items – Glasses, contacts, contact solution. While many people won’t forget glasses or contacts if they wear them on a daily basis, contact solution often gets left behind. If you’ve already put your contacts in, why would you need that big bottle? People who need glasses for reading also tend to forget these at home. While putting on your glasses or contacts, remove them from the bathroom and into your bag or an area with more traffic. You’re more likely to glance down in that room than the bathroom and see the stuff you still need to move it into your luggage. Continue reading 15 Commonly Forgotten Vacation Items
