Not Too Much to Report but a Few Adventures!

 Well, hello, I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!  All is well here. We actually got away for a few days and went to our favorite spot in Oregon, Cannon Beach. It was pretty rainy, but we did get in a couple of walks on the beach despite the high tide.

There were lots of big logs that washed up on the beach and even this rope.  Both are covered with lots of barnacles which made the shore birds happy.

This walkway down to the beach was filled with logs and sand. It would have been interesting to see those logs fly over the concrete walls!

There are lots and lots of bunnies that roam around. We were watching one big tan rabbit when a hawk swooped in and clipped my shoulder but missed the bunny! As you can see from the photo, the rabbits are pretty tame and do a good job clipping the grass.

We finally had a beautifully sunny day on Sunday. It was Halloween and also 57 years since we met at at a Halloween party. So we celebrated by a walk around a local lake and dinner out.

On our walk we spotted this heron and were amazed at how well it blended in to its surroundings. It was looking for food but turned once so we got its photo.

That's it for now.  Have a great day, and I hope to have some finishes soon!

I’m glad you posted the second photo of the rope because the first one had me wondering what on earth it was.

What great photos! We saw a big heron hiding in the rushes of the nearby wetlands the other day. We almost walked right past it. I've never seen one so big around here before. It looked almost prehistoric.
Pup's little dress came from Pet Smart. I got it on a clearance rack last year. I got her two. Hopefully she will fit into the other one next year.

You saved the bunny! Good for you. I used to see herons when Mandy lived on teh Chesapeake Bay. Oh how I miss the Oregon coast. It holds so many memories for us.

Happy you were able to enjoy some time away! My daughter and I went to Cannnon Beach in 2008 (or so) when I visited some blogger friends. Beautiful part of the country!!!
