Hello friends. How are you doing? We are happy as clams. :-) We got on the road yesterday around noon and although I was playing Scrabble on my phone and missed Dayle going the wrong way.. (I'm the navigator).. we got to the beach in good time. We usually go through McMinnville and come home via Salem.. this time we took the Salem route first. We were amazed and quite pleased to arrive and set up with sunny skies and warm sun on us! It was so nice that we had the door open and enjoying this view out the trailer window!
We relaxed and enjoyed our new view for a while and then headed out for an early dinner.. as we didn't have lunch due to our change in route. :-) I snapped this image of our view looking north as we left.
We had a wonderful dinner at Georgie's Grill in Newport, halibut fish and chips.. and we shared a bowl of clam chowder.. nummers. Then we drove to the Yaquina Bay park to catch the sunset.. it's just a few minutes drive from the restaurant.
Day is done.. gone the sun..
It's interesting how some sunsets are reds and orange and some are gold.
We were right above the jetty and heard the US Coast Guard helicopter coming by.. zoom.. snap..
See him out above the ocean?

As I was packing I ran across the one pair of socks that I knitted.. this photo is for KathyB who loves to knit socks. :-) I used cotton sock yarn. These were such a brain strain for me that after finishing the pair I've never knitted a second set.. but I did finally buy some sock yarn and have a pattern.. I just *might* cast on while we're here.
We have a lovely lazy day stretching ahead of us.. :-)
I have to finish one of the 3 hats I made for my nephew's girls.. and 3 flowers to make for the side of them. They plan to visit us at our trailer on Thursday which will be fun. I hope your week is going well! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
