Yesterday we awoke to a beautiful sunny day with puffy clouds! We had our coffee and bagel and awaited the arrival of my best friend from 7th grade, Shirley, and her husband John. Also coming to help celebrate my birthday were our DIL Kristi and 2 little grandsons, Caleb and Hayden.
I tried to capture the beautiful sight of a wave breaking and the light shining through the wave.
When everyone got here we all headed off for lunch at Georgie's Grill in Newport. The food is great and there is a full view from the restaurant of the Pacific Ocean - you can even see Yaquina Head Lighthouse at work from our table. The boys ate their meals with gusto, I had wonderful prawns and they even brought me a complimentary dessert with a candle on top - and everyone sang happy birthday to me! :-)
After lunch, we came back to the camp as the boys wanted to play on the beach. Here is Grandpa and Kristi and Buddy.
All five of them.
And look at what they brought for me from the beach? Agates!
And a piece of green sea glass. :-)
Here is a close up of the sea glass and another really pretty agate that looks like a drop of amber honey.
To me each one is a work of art and I study their beauty.
This is the biggest one and has an inner orange glow.
Kristi also found a funny little nut and she popped it open and it's like 2 hearts and reminds me of two little owl faces! Who knows where on earth this came from!
These look like molten gold.
Kristi booked a room for them in a quaint little old hotel called Trollers Lodge in Depoe Bay and they headed there for the evening. We had a really dramatic sunset last night!
I hope you don't mind me posting several images of it.
The sun fell below the clouds...
I caught this image of the spray illuminated in pinkish orange off this wave.
Dayle got this one of the wave breaking..
And then to our cozy bed for the night.
Kristi was up with the boys this morning and took them for breakfast then down to the beach. They visited us here and Caleb found some cartoons for them to watch while they warmed up. They headed on home and we'll see them in a few days. :-)
I had to show you the neat gift Kristi gave me! It's a Nordic candelabra! I love these and was wishing for a red one, and it has hand-painted decorations! It looks super neat in the trailer at night all lit up.
Well, we're be heading off for some afternoon adventure. I hope you have a great weekend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
