The view from our deck
We stayed in one of the lower buildings, a short walk from the sandy beach.
Lots of sand dunes here and so different from the beaches further north. Note the jacket! It was very windy and only in the low sixties during the days while the East Coast was sweltering!
I finished my July dishcloth.
We hiked near the Yaquina Head lighthouse.
The trail took us down to Quarry Cove where we saw lots of cormorants and a few people.
Instead of heading all of the way east, we turned off Highway 20 and went back home to Bellevue and found two surprises, a good one and a not so good one.
While we were gone, this wonderful package from from Caffeine Girl arrived. Don't you just love those earrings? And the yarn, and the yummy vegetable? (Oh, you didn't know that chocolate is a vegetable? I saw that on a pillow once, so it must be true, right?) Thank you, Deb, I can't wait to make something with this yarn!
As for the not so good surprise, it happened in the dark of night while we were gone....my crocosmia plant flowers, that were finally about to bloom, were devoured by a deer. All of the flowers and buds were neatly snipped off, and the rascal didn't stop there. It visited the roses in the side yard and pruned them along with the heuchera out back. At least we got this photo of the plant about to bloom and also enjoyed a few cut roses before we left. Sigh.......sometimes the wildlife around here can be so annoying!
Have a lovely weekend!
