Happy Hour

Tonight we had dinner and drinks with some coworkers.  After dinner we decided to have dessert at Scott’s new favorite place.  On the way to get gelato we stopped by a store where you can ride a bucking shark! After we stopped there for a photo op, we made it to the gelato place!

Waterfalls galore!

Today we had another amazingly beautiful day.  Since I didn’t have to work, we decided to travel a couple of hours east to Silver Falls State Park.  We hiked about 6 miles and saw 10 waterfalls!  We were even able to walk behind a couple of them!  We packed a lunch and made a day of it.  I am glad…

Once back on the Pacific Coast Highway, the views of the Pacific Ocean were awesome.  The…

However, I do think that we may have found a bar that could be our “go to” place.  Because we want to walk to the bar, and because it seems to always be raining, this is how we have…

Finally, no rain!

We finally had a warm, dry, non windy day!  Too bad it was a workday. We decided to take advantage of appears to be rare weather and take a nice long evening walk.  We walked down to a part of the beach we hadn’t been to yet.  On the way we saw this monument and grave for sailors. This part…
