Grocery Shopping on the Oregon Coast

Well y’all, no matter where you live there are things that need to be done. Even on the Oregon Coast I have to clean the cat’s litter box, on Wednesday nights I have to take the garbage to the curb, and once a week, to keep Norbert happy

I have to make fresh hummingbird food.

And, to eat regularly, we have to go grocery shopping….

It’s a good thing we showed up!

When you move to a new town there are challenges. What day is garbage day? Where is the closest Starbucks? Where can you find farm fresh eggs? These are all things that need to be figured out.

You also have to find that certain place or places you like to go to just hang out. As much fun as it is to just be at home, its nice to find that place you like to go where they know your name and treat you well.

We are lucky that we have found two places!  One is Fathoms, the 10th floor at the inn at Spanish Head. We can have dinner and watch a sun down.

The other is The Red Roof… Continue reading “It’s a good thing we showed up!”

Loving a small town!

Day to day, working, running errands and just doing your everyday tasks, sometimes its easy fo forget things are different here. But then there are days like today that remind you… Continue reading “Loving a small town!”

But that is not what the fuzzy bear caterpillars tell me

Ladies and gents I am getting spoiled! The weather has been nothing but amazing this entire month. (Funny, the one real rain we had, Michelle and I were in Portland at the zoo!) Aside from those days, October has looked like this

Blue sky, sunshine and warm…  Continue reading “But that is not what the fuzzy bear caterpillars tell me”

After 6 months there is still new to see…

We looked at the calendar yesterday, and sure as hell, it has been 6 months since we moved here!! March 23rd, on a rainy cold day in Mountlake Terrace, we loaded the U-Haul and headed south. There are those who believed we would run out of things to do and be bored…

Not hardly! Continue reading “After 6 months there is still new to see…”

Under 200 miles???

Yesterday morning I was taking a quick ride to Newport. Michelle was getting her hair done, and I was riding south to meet her. We were going to drive back together and stop at the grocery store. It was a gorgeous day to ride! Blue sky, no wind and  the whales were out

I was cruising along when realized that Saturday was the first day of September! And as the title says, I had ridden less than 200 miles during the month of August…. Continue reading “Under 200 miles???”

A Science and History lesson

As we all know, many of my discoveries happen when I am on a bike. However, in this instance, I have ridden by the location I am blogging about many times, and had never taken a right turn to check things out. In my defense, most of the time when passing the tiny Town of Neskowin, I have had over 90 miles under my legs and I have a big hill coming up and I just want to get home and eat….

Today, though, Michelle and I went to Neskowin on purpose. We wanted to check out the Ghost Forest near Proposal Rock… Continue reading “A Science and History lesson”
