I'm tired. No I'm pooped!! The laundry room is full of sandy clothes and suitcases. We left our bathroom under construction on Friday and headed for Cannon Beach, OR to celebrate my birthday (and escape the dust & noise!). Have you ever been to Cannon Beach? It's absolutely delightful!!! It reminds me of the very tiny town that I grew up in. And by tiny, I mean pop. 2300. It's much larger now.... I think they've hit the 4500 mark. But now I'm off on another subject.
Ok. Cannon Beach. It's quaint, picturesque, filled with adorable shops and restaurants, and the best (BEST) ice cream parlor. We went all three days that we were there. Ok, well~ on day 2, we realized that we hadn't had any ice cream, but it was far past Betsy's bedtime... so once she went to sleep, I snuck out (Tom was still in our hotel suite.... no need to call CPS), and got us both double scoops. Is that mean? We ate our ice cream in bed watching 48 hours Mystery while Betsy slept. It was after all, my birthday eve, and since I celebrate all month, I figured it was justified.
We also had a great time on the beach. The weather was perfect! A bit chilly and windy at first, but then, just GREAT.
We had to purchase the purple hat / mitten ensemble for our girl
Haystack Rock... quite a sight!
Plenty of sandcastles
and long walks
and this gorgeous sunset, a view enjoyed from our balcony
We have just returned home.... to a bathroom STILL under construction. But since it's my birthday, we had a bit more ice cream and it seemed to be the perfect ending to a perfect weekend away.
Have yourselves a wonderful week ahead!!
Bathroom photos coming soon!
