Another invite, another weekend in Lincoln City. Thanks, Dave and Rachel!
We started our spring break on the Oregon coast, having been invited by friends Dave and Rachel to spend the weekend with them in Lincoln City. We spent Saturday in Depoe Bay, watching workers fillet the day’s catch. We weren’t the only watchers. Sea lions waited below, why, I’m not sure. The seagulls were faster in all cases but one. The sea lion investigated and rejected what had been offered. A gull wasn’t as finicky.
Sunday, Jamison and I went for an ocean ride on Mr. Max. We tried to go whale watching, but the whales didn’t cooperate. For that matter, neither did the weather. We got misted on most of the time and then rained on. Nope! We didn’t take cover. The view of the ocean and the sky is much better from the exposed bow.
Monday, we visited the beach by Mo’s. An incredible amount of wood debris was washed up onto the beach — more than I’ve ever seen. The kids made a fort while I took pictures of the sky.
My short vacation is over and Jamison’s spring break has barely begun. It should be a good week.
Thanks to a last-minute invite from Dave and Rachel, we are spending another marvelous weekend at Lincoln City. Friday evening, we went to Road’s End State Park to watch the sunset.
Update. I took a video using my cheap camera. Here it is.
Dave and Rachel invited us for another weekend at Lincoln City — what fun!
We found many different ways to relax, including visiting Drift Creek covered bridge, playing at Regatta Park, going to Cold Stone, watching the sunset, digging in the sand, and taking more pictures of the sky.
Thanks, Dave and Rachel for another awesome weekend!
It wasn’t our first visit to the cabin.
Dave and Rachel invited us to spend the weekend at his parents’ vacation house on Devils Lake. Of course, we can come! ;-)
Highlights of the weekend include many trips to the nearby playground, making s’mores on the back deck, going to Roads End beach to dig in the sand and explore tidal pools, playing Scattergories (no, Rachel — we don’t pack bowling balls or turtles in suitcases), watching the kids in the hot tub, playing fetch with Mushu the dog, and many delicious meals.
