Birthday at The Beach...

When you live in the Pacific Northwest y0u know it's a real treat to go to the Oregon coast in January and find Spring like weather.

We were at Cannon Beach this week where it was clear and sunny and got up to 59 degrees!  I know that doesn't sound very warm but when we left home, it was only 37 degrees.

This shot was taken from the balcony of our room.

These two shots were taken at sunset from our balcony

It was a little foggy one morning but still beautiful.

Me & Sam

We surprised a herd of elk!  I wished I could have gotten the shot of them looking at me before they turned and ran.

We spent 3 great days at the coast...walked the beach, ate great food and wine...Heaven.  We've already booked March reservations for our 30th anniversary!  

Can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by!

Moss Love...

Who doesn't love moss?  One of the benefits of living in the great Pacific Northwest is no shortage of moss.  I love it!

Sure we get more than our fair share of rain but look what comes from it...

And after all, green is my favorite color!

A Bright White New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

My New Years Eve was very uneventful. I've been fighting a cold so it was a short night for me...
two glasses of wine and a shot of Nyquil and I was out by 8:00!  So long 2012.

Hello 2013
We had an unexpected snowfall yesterday so we started off the new year with about 3 inches of snow on the ground.

This morning I took these pictures as the fog settled in...

Sweet pair of doves

As the morning went on, the sun made it's appearance.  I only  love the snow when the sun's shining.  

My handsome son, Sam

It's just so pretty, but I'd much rather have those 80 degree days.

View from my front porch.  The palms look a little out of place with snow on the ground but it's my way of keeping the tropical feel of summer year around!

Enjoy the rest of your New Years Day!
