Precious Moments On the Oregon Coast

Mark and Hazel share a Pringles moment while Ajax looks on

On Tuesday, we were able to move to a bigger cottage with beautiful views of the ocean. It featured two bedrooms, plus an extra bed in the living room, along with a big kitchen and eating area. Again, Ester Lee quaint. I mean, when was the last time you saw an original glass block shower? And the tile? And dig the faucet above the kitchen sink.

After a late breakfast, we spent most of the afternoon and early evening on the beach. It was a little overcast, but we experienced breaks in the clouds. The wind was so relatively calm that Mark and Nathan weren't able to get the kite up. The next day, however, the day of our departure, it was raining like crazy. We were so, so lucky.

I just *might* have had something to do with Hazel chowing down on Pringles. Maybe.

Hannah and I had more time to talk

Meanwhile, the "boys" and Hazel played Bocce ball. Close by ...

... and further away where the sand was firmer. Hazel commuted ...

 ... with her can of Pringles

Eventually, we headed back to the cottage for enchiladas and watching the sunset through the picture window in the living room.

It. Was. Amazing. Beautiful. Fun. Magical. What life is supposed to be like.


  1. I'm glad you could have such a wonderful time with your family. The Oregon coast is a magical place.

  2. My gluteus and calves look very flattering in the picture of bocci ball.
