Just a bit of a branch that had washed up at some point. And yes… if you’ve read the previous post and wondered, Weston did leave his mark on this one as well. There should be a sign… Weston was here.
So it’s Wednesday which means I need to get a move on about posting our events, travels, etc. from last weekend. I’m a bit late. Ah well… it’s my blog I suppose so I can post when I get the time. Which happens to be now. So… anywho…. enough mumbling about why I haven’t posted this stuff before now. Let’s get on with it.
This last weekend we went to the beach for our anniversary. It’s sort of become a bit of a tradition (except for last year when our anniversary fell in the middle of the week and we couldn’t really get away). It was Riley’s first trip to the coast, ever, and she loved it. She wasn’t fazed by it at all, even when it rained a ton. Pretty amazing. She’s a cool customer.
We spent last Thursday through Sunday morning in Lincoln City, Oregon at the Ester Lee Motel just hanging out, walking on the beach, playing poker, watching the Harry Potter marathon, and enjoying the fourth of July fireworks displays. We also, to give ourselves credit for actually celebrating the fourth, did our own little bit of sparkler waving and built a fire on the beach (even though it drizzled part of the time) complete with weenie roasting and s’more makin’. We had a really good four days over there.
In keeping with the spirit of what I usually do on this blog o’ mine I will post several photos taken during our time in Lincoln City and Newport, which we visited. This one was taken the first day, in Lincoln City, on our first walk down to the beach from our motel room. I liked the look of it. It’s a weed, but really cool and lovely.
This week’s theme for the photo hunt is signs. I actually had several contenders for the week, but settled on this one. I was staying in Lincoln City, Oregon for the weekend and nearby the hotel was a path down to the beach. This sign, and several like it, were painted on this path. I was glad to know my hotel was up, the way of the arrow, in the “safety” zone.
