Decisions Decisions…

Folks, this is shaping up to be an interesting weekend at the new homestead. Tomorrow, we have a pretty decent wind storm going to hit, Gusts up to 50, and this is causing a high surf warning!

For the natives and long-term coast kids, this is probably nuthin. “Might have to put on the heavier gortex” they might even mutter. But for me I am excited! I love ocean storms!

All day I have been looking outside as I have been working, watching for any tell tale signs. At the end of my shift, something struck me as odd… Continue reading “Decisions Decisions…”

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”

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”

So many things to do at our beaches!

I fully understand there are different people in the world. We all have the things we like and don’t like.  Since Thursday, Michelle and I have been at Cannon Beach, with this view outside out window.

And we have loved every minute of it!  I have to laugh, though, some people think our oceans are boring. Continue reading “So many things to do at our beaches!”

Critters

Well, here I sits after a long drive home.  Michelle is out getting her hair did.  Appointments are hard to come by (Unless you use Hairmasters like I do) So we made sure to leave in time to get home for it.  It was nip and tuck there for a bit, and I unloaded the car like the wind, but she is there.

I have gotten thing put away, laundry started, everything needing it watered, and singed some hair on the legs burning weeds from an area that will be barked Saturday.

I am taking a second to sit, and do one last photo blog, even though I have access to the real computer. I wanted to share the cool animals we saw!  Later, I will get a real post going. Continue reading “Critters”

The BEST day at the Oregon Coast EVER! Plan C continues!

Ladies and gents, I have been coming to the Oregon coast since the late 1980s.  There has never been a trip I didn’t enjoy. Even if it rains or its cold, the right coat allowed me to do whatever I wanted.

Today though, had enough combinations of things to honestly agree with Michelle when she asked if I had an Epic day.  I did!  I can’t ever remember one being better! Continue reading “The BEST day at the Oregon Coast EVER! Plan C continues!”
