We've had a wonderful holiday at the beach here in Oregon! The weather has been unexpectedly fabulous! Our youngest son arrived for a visit yesterday right after noon with his 2 little boys. The first thing we did was take them out for lunch, then back to our trailer to visit. This photo shows Dayle, Buddy, Travis, Hayden & Caleb going for a beach walk. I had to stay behind due to my foot issues, but I took some photos and waved at them from above.They found some agates and a tiny piece of green beach glass and presented them to me.
The boys played with Grandpa, they're like two wiggly puppies!
The roll and wiggle and move constantly. Fun to watch!
We shot this sunset photo as we loaded the boys up for them to go home.
We were going to get us all a bowl of clam chowder at Mo's Restaurant at Taft, but when we pulled in, this is what we found. There was no waking them, so Travis headed home with them in his VW bus. They look like angels.. when asleep. :-)
This morning we awoke to a crystal clear day - the photo below is evidence.. it was sunny here! LOL!
After a leisurely morning enjoying the view from the trailer, we headed out to celebrate Dayle's birthday at the Tidal Raves Restaurant at Depoe Bay. Here is the view from our table!!
I ordered their crab and shrimp salad and a bowl of chowder, Dayle got a House Smoked Pork Loin sandwich with pickled cabbage, spicy citrus aioli on a fresh baked rosemary bun. My salad was gorgeous with mixed greens, crab, shrimp and fresh fruit, such as pineapple, orange and apple. I forgot to take a photo, but it was definitely photo-worthy!
They treated Dayle to a warm chocolate chip cookie with vanilla bean ice cream!
I had Key Lime Pie with Mango sauce. :-)
This is the restaurant, our table was in the corner on the right.. awesome view!
Then on to enjoy a visit to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse.. I love this historic site!
This is Oregon's tallest lighthouse at 93 feet tall and began operating in 1872. I did a painting of this done in ink from an octopus, want to see?
This is a very poor quality image of the painting, I need to re-scan it. I painted this back when they still had the light-keeper's house there!
The beautiful Yaquina Bay Bridge.
This is Mo's Annex, of the infamous Mo's Clam Chowder.. this has been in the Historic Bay Front in Newport for a long time. It's a working fishing town, and has all kinds of tourist-y shops alongside the fish packing plants.
The fishing boat harbor.
Then we motored North along the Pacific Ocean to our trailer where we captured this sunset. Tomorrow we head home. It's sure been a great birthday trip for Dayle! When I told the waitress which birthday he was celebrating, she said he didn't look a day over 50. :-)
Thanks for visiting and the wonderful comments!! We both enjoy them.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
