A post today from the Oregon Coast. Today we are at Cannon Beach - this is our third night here.
The first place we stayed did not have Internet access and we haven't spent much time on the computer this past week.
We are having a great time. We have found some great quilt shops, one great brew pub and a couple hours shopping at an outlet mall.
Our first two nights were spent at a hotel at Rockaway Beach. The hotel is right on the beach. The beach at Rockaway is miles and miles of sand. It is a great walking beach -- or dog running beach!!
A few random pictures.
Jenny is a big fan of chasing seagulls.
Here are my DJ supplies that I set up in the room. I managed to do a fair bit on this block in Rockaway Beach. As you can see as I get older I need to bring my own light and my reading glasses and a needle threader.
The hotel is older and it was an alright room but it was right on the beach which was wonderful. There isn't too much else in Rockaway Beach but there are a bunch of fabulous quilt shops in the area. There is a nice little quilt shop in Wheeler called Creative Fabric. I think I will blog about the quilt shops when I get home and I can go through my fabric and take photos of my purchases and talk about each shop. All together I have been in 7 shops - from Astoria to Newport!!!
It has certainly been a fun trip as far as shopping has gone. We also bought a few items at the outlet centre in Lincoln. I bought 12 pair of Hanes socks for $15.00!! Jim bought two pair of Rockport shoes for 101.00. I also got 6 pair of Jockey underwear for $18.00! Two weeks ago I got 6 pair of Jockey underwear at the Sears in Canada for 35.00 - so you can imagine my exictement!
Here is a picture of the sunset at Rockaway Beach.
We have been extremely lucky and have had some beautiful weather. The day we arrived at Rockaway Beach it was very windy and wet but the next day (Wednesday) the sun came out and it has been warm and sunny every day. The weekend was amazing - so sunny and warm - no jackets needed for walking on the beach.
I discovered what a beautiful state Oregon is about 2 years ago. I think it is such a wonderful place and if you have never been to Oregon you really must go there one day.
Stay tuned - More to come.
