We saw every kind of weather yesterday. BLUE is the presiding color. Our day began with rain, it poured, but we were snug as a bug in a rug in our caravan. Then the clouds parted and the blue sky appeared and there was sun and big puffy clouds! This is the view from our "home".I have an app on my iPhone for tides.. and it said there would be a low tide at 2 pm so we headed outside - hubby and Buddy went down to the beach but I stayed up top to take photos and I knew I would be getting cold as it was blowing and chilly.
Dayle is looking for agates.. he brought back a small bunch of very tiny ones.. Buddy just loves smelling the scents and running on the beach.
Pouffy clouds, blue sky, cobalt colored deep Pacific, aqua waves breaking into white foam.
Look at that dog run! Wild ocean waves.. crash, boom..
A snarled pile of sea weed, like coiled snakes..
Several groups of Brown Pelicans flew by while I was watching my husband and dog walk on the beach.. I love this image of the birds and the mix of blues, greens, whites.... like a watercolor...
A trio of pelicans.
I adore the color of the water as it breaks... aqua.
We got a call from our son, Travis and he and Kristi were staying up at Garibaldi, a few hours north of us at the beach, they were going to head down for a visit! We drove north a half hour and met them at a place I'd wanted to try, Kyllo's Restaurant in Lincoln City on the "D River" - World's Shortest River. :-) Here is the guest of honor, Dayle, who will be turning 65 on Thursday!
Kristi ordered a cheeseburger and we all got a kick out of this big monster!
This is my dinner - prawns and they were DELISH! Travis got fish and chips and Dayle got smoked salmon alfredo.
After dinner we came back to our caravan and the sun was shining off the waves.. Kristi surprised Dayle with a German Chocolate birthday cake and a card from them and another from the little guys - and a bag of Swedish Fish (his favorite). Not only that, they bought our dinner! What wonderful kids we have!
Dayle grabbed the camera and went out to snap these shots of the sun as it descended into the ocean.
The ever-changing sky and sea.
Dayle snapped this of Kristi beach-combing. She'd promised to bring a shiny rock and some sand to her little guys.
Our pretty, smiling daughter-in-law. :-)
We had quite a stormy night! This morning we had pouring rain, hail and a flash of lightning with the longest rumble of thunder after it. We pulled the down comforter up around our chins and the dog was wedged between us. There have been sun breaks since.. silly weather. Today we will head south and do some adventuring. Have a super duper day! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
