Yesterday we made the trip to our favorite place at the beach. It's just north of Depoe Bay, Oregon and this is our view. :-) It's grey here and misty.. but the sun shone briefly over the Pacific Ocean last evening so I got a few pretty shots of the sea.
I wish you could hear the waves crashing against the sand.
We haven't been here in a while and I've missed the ocean so much.
The little people on the beach give you some idea of the dimension of it all.
We left the farm at noon and scooted through Portland with very little problem. We took Interstate 205 which joins I-5 near Wilsonville where we headed south to Salem, then exited there to head to the Oregon Beaches, to Sheridan and then south heading down to Lincoln City and to our destination just north of Depoe Bay. Almost 3 hours. I drove my Ford FLEX so we had a smaller car to do all our adventuring once here and didn't have to use the monster Dodge 1 ton dual wheel truck which truthfully isn't too easy to find a spot to park. :-)
Dayle expertly back the trailer in to our space while Buddy and I watched. He then hooked up the water, electricity and cable and now we're all cozy and warm in our caravan. We each made our own coffee and breakfast and now all we have to do is decide what adventure we want to do today and where we'll have a late lunch. Oh, the life of being retired.
The boys got their school photos so I thought I'd share them with you. Caleb is certainly growing up and looking so mature! He's only 8!
Hayden is 9 and such a good boy. They are both doing really well in school. We're so proud of our grandsons.
The sea gulls are swooping past the window and a whole flock of pelicans went by last evening.
I brought just a few decorations for the table and we have an autumn toned tablecloth we keep in the caravan for our October visits. One of the motorhomes here has two strands of Halloween lights strung across it's front window, kind of neat. A storm is coming in and we're getting buffeted by winds and the ocean has white caps. But we're happy as can be watching it all from our warm little home. I hope you're enjoying your day! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
