The Inn

The Inn, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Not sure what the purpose of these sticks was/were. Interesting though. One never knows what one might see when one walks on the beach. (LOL  That sentence just cracked me up.  When did I get so proper?)

Log Roll

Log Roll, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Uh, from the last entry… that would be last Friday afternoon, the 10th. Our anniversary is actually the 9th, but we really couldn’t take it off work as well. Have to save up that time off for trips to England and Chicago and visits with the kids. It’s OKContinue reading “Log Roll”

Shell Shocked

Shell Shocked, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is an old one, but since tomorrow is the first day of spring, I’ve been thinking about warmer weather and sun. Took this with a Canon PowerShot SD500 in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2006. I can almost feel the warmth of the sun.

Tied Up

Tied Up, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We took a little jaunt to the historic old bay front in Newport, Oregon. The bay front is actually still a working fishing port.

Frolicking on the Beach, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston loves the beach… soft sand, lots to sniff, and freedom to run. He was on his lead in this photo, but actually got to be off it a few times to which he said woo whoooo. And yeah, I’m sure that’s what he said….

A Look From Inside

A Look From Inside, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We spent the entire voyage across the Juan de Fuca Strait outside in the front of the ferry because Weston was allowed on deck, but not inside. However, sometimes a girl has to go in for a brief, uh, rest. Out there in the very front, orContinue reading “A Look From Inside”

Leaving and Arriving

Leaving and Arriving, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Later Tuesday morning we ventured out with Mary and Martin to grab some breakfast at a local bagel place and then walk around a bit more in the city.

Rock Climber

Rock Climber, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston was quite the rock climber during this trek. Poor guy, he had to be on his leash on the Juan de Fuca trail, but he was a trooper and did amazingly well.

Botanical Beach

Botanical Beach, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. As we wandered along the trail of Juan de Fuca we eventually made it to the Botanical Beach. This place was amazing. There were huge pools sunken in the rock. Some several feet deep and loads of wild life living in these pools. Pretty spectacular and like nothing I’dContinue reading “Botanical Beach”
