After Work in Lincoln City!

So, as we all now know, Mountainstroh and Mrs. Mountainstroh have moved out of the Puget Sound area of Washington. Last Saturday, we pointed our noses to the Southwest and arrived at Lincoln City. Since then, we have been going nonstop, with our OH SO helpful friends to set up the house, there are SO many more posts to come about the move in… Continue reading “After Work in Lincoln City!”

Oregon Coast 2017 continues

Michelle and I have  talked a time or two about this trip. Had we ended up at San Francisco and Napa as planned, it would have been MUCH less relaxing. There are so many things to see, that I would have been setting an alarm and it woulda been GO GO GO the entire time. In fact, Michelle told me she had scheduled a rest day in the vacation on Friday as she knew I would be on the move.

Things are different here…. Continue reading “Oregon Coast 2017 continues”

Resting(?) at the beach after the 100 mile ride!

A run to the ocean

Ever look around and realize DAMN! the year is half over and HOLY CRAP! it’s already August! I’d been saying all year that the MC (previously known as the Manchild) and I needed to go somewhere just the two of us.  Michelle, thankfully, keeps me on track, and this last weekend was the time to do it… Continue reading “A run to the ocean”

The things you can see at the ocean!

I am sure there are some who can come to the ocean and treat it just like they were at home.  They sit inside, they watch TV, they play video games and never really look around to see all there is to see. Luckily we are NOT like that.  One of the reason’s we go to the ocean, aside from just wanting to listen to the waves, is see all the beauty, natural and otherwise, you only get here.

My second phot blog post will share some with ya!  Continue reading “The things you can see at the ocean!”
