We have a tradition of spending our birthdays at the beach, Dayle's big day is on Tuesday. Yesterday we hooked up the trailer and headed South and West to Lincoln City. We were treated to some great Autumn leaves as we zoomed through the Van Duzer Corridor over the Coast Mountain Range.I brought some Halloween decor for the trailer and put these out when we were settling in after arrival.
This RV park is so GREAT! Here is our view out the window, the ocean is *right* there.
I've been working on my ripple blanket... hubby did not think I should add the yellow, but I did anyway. :-)The view out front of our trailer.. looking South.
Straight out front..
Looking North.. there is Dayle flirting.. I mean chatting with a woman and her dog. :-)
Our truck and trailer.
I took this photo from the door of the trailer to give you an idea of just how close we are to the surf. I wish I could insert the sound of the roar of the waves in here.. :-)
The obligatory photo of Buddy the dog on the back of the sofa.. his favorite perch to keep an eye on things going on outside. See my Lucy Granny Stripe crocheted blanket?
We have breakfast in the trailer -- coffee and toast or a muffin and some fruit. Then around 1 pm we head out in search of a place to have lunch. Hubby always wants to go the the *same* place. I, on the other hand, am the adventurous sort. I googled for places to eat in Depoe Bay (the closest town) and found "Spouting Horn" restaurant. Here is the view of Depoe Bay from our table, see the whale watching or fishing boat coming in? We both had a cheeseburger with a garden salad and hand-cut fries. It was yummy!
This is fuzzy but a view of the Depoe Bay Bridge -- it's called "The World's Smallest Harbor". More history can be found here - I didn't realize it had such a rich Native American Indian history!!
The marina and harbor. There was quite a bit of damage here from the Tsunami from the Japanese earthquake on March 11, 2011. Check out this video!
The photos below were taken near our favorite beach to take the grandkids to - Taft.
This is the Siletz Bay and spit at Taft, part of Lincoln City.
We're back in the trailer, snug as a bug. The weather is supposed to be spectacular over the next few days. Thanks for coming to visit!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
