We headed off on our beach trip yesterday - the weather was dry so the trip down was nice. This is a shot of the forest as we zoomed through the Pacific coast mountain range.
Before we hit the forest, we passed through the Willamette Valley, there are many old filbert (hazelnut) orchards in the valley. We grow a lot of them here! 3.5 million filbert trees are planted in Oregon, the biggest producer of them in the USA.Another product that Oregon is gaining fame for is wine making and grape growing. There are many successful wineries in the Willamette Valley. This is a shot of one of the lovely hillsides on our trip south. To learn more about winemaking in Oregon, click HERE.
We arrived in the afternoon just in time for a rainstorm - but we're warm and cozy in our caravan. My British and Australian friends call travel trailers that and I like the name as it evokes thoughts of old shepherd's wagons. Here is the view out our window on the right side of the caravan. Stormy seas, but we're cozy inside. As you can see, this RV park has a row RIGHT on the ocean - isn't it cool?
Dayle enjoys the sofa in here and this is his view towards the ocean.
The first night in the caravan is always an adjustment - our bed at home is king-sized and this one is queen-sized - plus the dog always jockeys for a good spot right in the middle. :-) So.. I had a restless night and remember waking to dreams of blogs about crocheted foxes.. don't ask me why. The 2nd night is always better. Egads, the clean sheets stashed up in the glass cabinets isn't very attractive, is it? LOL!
SOMEONE is comfortable.. :-)
I have put out my Halloween decorations to make it homey. I found my tiny pumpkin I made last year, it was here in the caravan!
Dayle's "nest". I love the color that my rainbow granny stripe crocheted blanket brings to the place.
It's stormy today, but we don't mind. I just got a call from our youngest son, Travis - he and his wife Kristi are staying a few nights at a beach hotel one and a half hours north of here. Her mom is keeping the little boys. They are heading down this way for a visit! Their arrival will coincide with a low tide so we plan to go beach-combing for agates. Then we will go to a late lunch at a beachside restaurant I've always wanted to try.
I see some blue sky showing and sun is shining in places.. I think we have a great day ahead of us. I hope you have a great week ahead of you! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
