When I started this post, it made me think about the essays we used to have to write on the first day of school. As soon as I hit August, I can't help but think of going back to work on the 25th. But I have plenty of summer days to enjoy before that alarm clock rings. I am finally getting my Oregon pics up to share. What a wonderful time (as usual) and we tried flying this year and I have to admit, it was pretty nice skipping that long and tiring drive. But note to self, do not fly out of Missoula at 6am. Why did I possibly think I would not mind getting up at 4?
Always nice to find the condo right where we left it. This year we had a little visitor who visited often, and I got to go down at low tide to my favorite beach. And found lots of sea glass and agates.
Each day we venture out and visit the coastal towns. Newport, Depoe Bay (our home port), Cannon Beach and Florence. This is my most fav meal, awesome chowder and a shrimp salad that is to die for!
Depoe Bay, kind of kitschy and that is why I love it! We found a new Antique store and I was more interested in the plants outside than what was in the store. Hit the Flea Market and they never fail me, I found some treasures. And look at me, we got the coveted table at the Zebra Bar in Florence and they brought my guy some awesome sliders.
Cannon Beach is a lovely drive north and the town is known for their flowers and Cape Cod like buildings. I love the top flower (Fireweed) so much, I found some growing wild here in Montana and it now grows in my front gardens. Don't you just love a restaurant that makes little butter balls?
The Marine Gardens and my favorite beach, Beverly Beach. Where we used to camp. Hubby was lucky and when we went to Florence, he got to take in a car and plane show. And though he did not find Dory, he did find Nemo....LOL
We always make sure we are back to the condo for the evenings. I make dinner, we pour the wine and are usually found watching the sunsets. But hubby also loves his puzzle and our girls gave us a Lego set to make called the Beach House. :) All too soon it is time to head home, but this year we caught the Griz plane in Portland (as you can see I was so thrilled - that's my football team!) and by nightfall we were back in our home in the mountains. The best of both worlds! Always, Kit
