We had a quick trip to the Oregon Coast, but it was a good one.
As you can see if you compare these photos to the cabin photo on my sidebar, the little red cabin is undergoing transition - not so little, and not so red, yet.
The new roof raising has dramatically increased sleeping space, and some kid playing space as well. My sister Laurie and her husband and family have been overseeing the remodel. This was our Mother and Dad's cabin, and Mother left funds for cabin improvements and upkeep. It is a wonderful legacy.
Tom and I and the kids arrived about 3:00 Thursday afternoon, and were soon out on the beach for our first beach walk, and then some playing.
I finished the day with another walk down to the Twin Rocks.
This is how those same rocks look from farther down the beach, the next morning.
After my walk I joined the kids in sand construction by the creek.
We stayed out on the beach most of the day. Corey arrived about 6:00, and we enjoyed take out fish and chips before going for an evening stroll. Well, I strolled. The kids suddenly had boundless energy again and ran far ahead.
The sun was setting into the almost ever present fog bank over the ocean.
We met up with Corey and Tom.
Corey was excited to use his new Nikon 9000 series camera. He has left me in the dust in camera and photo technology.
I was just carrying my little Canon Powershot, but it does pretty well.
Tom and I left Rockaway this morning and got back home to Seattle about 3:30 this afternoon. Corey and the kids are staying another day.
We're unpacked, doing laundry and are getting a few things done around here before loading up again and heading for Whidbey Island on Monday.
Kitty is glad to see us.
