Oregon Coast Weekend

This past weekend the family and I took a trip to the Oregon coast. We stayed with our friend Tim and his wonderful family at their beach house. It was very sweet of them to open up their beach house to us!

The beach house was sooooo incredibly beautiful and we had such a great time! The kids were well behaved and it was fun seeing them running around having a great time all excited to be some place new and be around new people. It rained a fair amount of time we were there so we didn't actually go down to walk along the beach, but there were some beautiful sun breaks and you better believe we took advantage of them and went exploring around the towns!

Our friend's parents were so kind to watch the kids for us and we were able to go out and do some things without them. It was great! During our weekend stay we took drives around the surrounding area and stopped in at a lot of small shops, went to a few bars, bought some crab, sat by the fire, listened to music, stopped at an awesome antique shop, went to the Tillamook Cheese Factory, did a little wine tasting at this quaint, out of the way winery (I bought some yummy sweet plum wine), went to the crab races being held that weekend (people race crabs as well as feast on them, lol, awesome!), and just ate and ate and ate delicious food to the point of bursting!

What an awesome weekend.

I have a few more photos of the coast to share, but I will share those in a later post. 

With love,

  4. We definitely had a lot of fun despite the rain. I can say that was my first time being drunk in the middle of the day. ;) lmao. And you can't beat home made, battered, and fried fish and chips! Mmmmm. It was so incredibly beautiful there.

  5. I'd kill to see you drunk Bec! Don't ask me why, I just have a feeling I'd laugh my ass off watching you carry on. :)

    And I understand the allure of the Coast, my family on my mother's side is from Nova Scotia and I'm no stranger to the ocean.
