Astor House residents go whale watching
This summer, residents living at Holiday Retirement’s Astor House at Springbrook Oaks in Newberg, Oregon, kicked off their summer with a trip to catch sight of one of nature’s wonders. According to locals, there is always a chance to see gray whales along the Oregon coastline due to their migration patterns.
Fifteen Astor House seniors made the trek to Depoe Bay for the whale-watching adventure in June, spotting many of the world’s largest mammals. Residents enjoyed the excursion, as one of the many activities they participate in throughout the year.
Gray whales migrate to the Oregon coast during the winter and spring, with some of them feeding along the coast during the summer months. Although not as plentiful as gray whales, humpback whales, sperm whales, blue whales and minke whales can also occasionally be spotted in the area!
