love love LOVE the Coast.

we got back yesterday from a wonderful trip to the Oregon Coast. dlb, Moose cat, and I drove out to the Coast Thursday afternoon. it was gorgeous. breathtaking. quite blue. and chilly. dlb’s whole family was there. yep, all four brothers and sisters, mom & dad, and three dogs, which Moose got along with pretty well… surprisingly. the Pacific Ocean is incredibly amazing. I’d seen it a few times before, but not to where it made an impact on me. we were in a little vacation town called Netarts. the home we stayed in was what I would call, beachy modern. the perfect combination of comfortability and style. and now that I’m back home, I’m missing the sand, waves, and the sound of the ocean.
whales spraying. seals diving.
waves rolling in and surfers surfing.
jellyfish at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
the Rogue Brewery.
Chamomellow, Brewer, and Menage-a-Frog.
the devil’s punch bowl and the octopus tree.
lots of salt water taffy.
catching and cleaning my own dungeness and red rock crabs.
actually holding a creepy crawly squirmy crab.
smelling the salty air from the Pacific.
camp fires and banana s’mores.
