Swimming… of course

Dinner was a bust… we ate at the Coast restaurant which seemed like a chain and cost too much. We didn’t even take a photo of what we got because we were underwhelmed. Oh well, can’t win ’em all… After dinner Dan did decided it was time to jump into the bay. Notice how many other people are swimming! But of course that did not stop him… and you can imagine how warm the water was on this overcast day. 😉

Paddle boarding

Since no one had tried it before we said what the heck.

Both the girls thought that it was super fun.

Dude said it was fun … but he didn’t the bickering over whose turn it was. I liked it just fine from the beach where I couldn’t hear any of them! 😀

Our weekend at the Coast.



It was a great weekend of relaxing and eating too much. I don’t know how we are going to get back into the normal routine…

Turtle hangin’ at the beach.

This was a first… we swam with turtles while on this trip but we never just wandered to the beach and found one hanging in the sun.

Whale pics.

I found a few whales! I also found the setting on my camera where I just hold the shutter button down and it takes picture after picture so I got the play by play of each whale swimming up and then down. Yes… I know, I’m a little outa’ control but what can I say? I get so excited when I see them. 🙂

Siltcoos Lake Lodge

We decided to get away for one night and here we are… A funky RV permanantly parked along a river. The location is beautiful and my kids are attempting to fish up a storm. After playing lots of animal crossing they now think that they are fishing pros! We shall see… 🙂

Another Coast pic.

Here is another picture from the Oregon Coast. We went to Devil’s Churn where the water is whipped into such a froth it looks like milk. I’ve got goodies for tomorrow so check back! 😀

Off to the Coast.

After we stuffed ourselves with turkey leftovers we headed to the Coast for a little family fun. Of course DH always has to get in the water! 😀

Setting moon.


We see the moon set each morning because we are still basically on Pacific time… not Hawaii time which is two hours earlier! Needless to say I’m learning lots by watching the National Geographic channel with my kids each morning, one of our few choices at that hour. 😀 Today Dude and I are off to find beads and hike, at least one of those activities will make me very happy! Ha!
