Birthday Boy at the Beach

Friday we celebrated Dayle's birthday with lunch at one of our favorite places, "Tidal Raves" in Depoe Bay.  My older siblings had headed home already, but I called my younger sister Denise to see if she was still in town and wanted to join us, so she did.  The views here are spectacular and the food is fresh and inventive, it was her first time here and she just loved it!  Here is the birthday boy with his complimentary warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream on top.  :-)

Denise ordered the "Seahawk Bread" to share with us.  I might try this at home sometime - it's smoked salmon, shrimp mixed with cream cheese, spread on French bread, and a slice of Havarti cheese on top, then put under the broiler.  Yum!

My sister and I both ordered the grilled wild salmon with fingerling potatoes, veggies and shrimp salsa.  :-)  

The view is amazing.  We saw kayakers heading in to the bays on the right.

We actually spent the evening enjoying the comfort of our cozy trailer - the dog likes it when we do that.  :-)

Here is Buddy in "I see a dog!!! mode".  :-)

Is he as cute to you as he is to me?  LOL!

We had a lovely sunset.  

The ocean was like liquid copper and gold!

Amazing, isn't it?

The best sunset all week.  

I have some neat photos to share with you of yesterday, but for now, it's time to stow all our things and hook up the truck and head home.  I hope you've enjoyed sharing the Oregon coast with me.   ((hugs)), Teresa :-) 


  1. Beautiful!!! Yes your doggy is just as cute to me as he is too you. Well maybe you do havew an edge on that one. Happy birthday to Dayle. It looks like you had a great day!

  3. What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday! Happy Birthday Dayle!!!!
    The view is spectacular!!!

  4. yes, dear friend, I did enjoy your postings on your trip. Time does fly doesn't it, you no sooner get there and it is time to pack up and head for home. I hope you both have a safe trip. The sunset was amazing. I am really going to have to get out with my camera and find some interesting things to capture. For right now the farmers are harvesting dried up corn and soy bean fields. I suppose someone else could do a complete Geographic spread on corn fields, but I'm not so talented to do that, lol. I would rather get flowers, but the season is long gone for finding any blooms now. Oh well, there will be plenty of snow has been cold, burrrrrrrrrr
