I'm waving to you from the edge of the Pacific Ocean - 44 latitude by 124 longitude. :-) Lincoln Beach is the name of the place where we bring our travel trailer/caravan and this is the view from our door! :-)
Our wonderful son Travis and DIL Kristi met us here to help Dayle get the trailer backed in and hooked up. Good thing as the big slide wouldn't go out and Travis opened an access panel under the trailer and used a wrench to get it to move. Then he helped Dayle hook up everything! Yay! They rented a hotel room for two nights and made a vacation out of it and had a great time.
We had a bit of a sunset that first night.
Kristi surprised me with this beautiful Easter basket so we brought it with us to the beach to enjoy for the week. It has an African violet, a sedum with orange flowers and plus other living plants.. so nice!
Their pup Ozzie had fun playing with our pup Mocha while they visited us in the caravan.
We surprised Kristi with an Easter Azalea!
The kids spent hours on the beach and our amazing beachcomber daughter-in-law brought back all these treasures she found.
I was amazed with this black coral tree she found with white stuff on the branches.
And this bright pinky red sea moss or ?
She also found this unusual nut thing and we mused that it may have traveled from some exotic country across the ocean. Ideas?
On Easter Sunday we surprised the boys with a chocolate bunny filled with jelly beans. Then we treated them all to a nice lunch at a Mexican restaurant before they headed home.
Kristi took her favorite beach finds and left all the agates and one shell for me. WAHOO! I do love beach agates! Thank you, Kristi!
We've had some lovely weather while here so far!
Travis is walking Ozzie the Australian Shepherd while the boys play and Kristi searches the beach for treasures. Travis turned his back to the ocean and he and the dog got wet feet!
After bidding farewell to the kids we headed south on 101 and pulled in to snap a photo of my favorite rocks in Siletz Bay at Taft.
I just think this tree topped rock is so picturesque.
Then a turn up the road next to the Siletz River to check on my "nurse log". My it's grown! And the tide was so low that it was sticking way up in the air. I worry that some day it will roll over and float out to sea.
The kids were so lucky to be here during a very low tide and were able to walk around and see starfish and anemone and all sorts of wonderful things.
Kristi collected some shells, making sure they were old and not inhabited by anything and washed them up at home. I am not sure of the names of these shells but if I find out I will add identifications here. Kristi said the big ones are Whelk.
Their pup Ozzie had a wonderful time on the beach. Here he is with his own beach find. :-)
Today we meet fellow blogger Betsy and her husband Dennis for lunch at Kyllos. That will be fun as I haven't seen her for years now it seems. Have a super week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
