We had a lovely, relaxing, (fairly) quiet weekend at the coast. We met Michael’s mom and stepdad at a house they borrowed from a friend in Netarts, right on the bay. It had a lovely view of the water (and it was a nice, scenic drive through the Tillamook Forest to get there).
The house was really nice. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a deck with a view. The master bedroom was downstairs with the most amazing king bed we’ve ever slept in. Then there was a small bedroom with two twin beds for Logan. Upstairs had two queen beds.
Friday night we enjoyed some pizza for dinner and then went for a walk nearby.
Then I got to enjoy some quiet time in the magnificent bathtub with my book, some candles, a glass of wine and Francoise Hardy on the radio.
Everyone slept great and we got to sleep in a bit on Saturday. Then we got up and Michael made everyone omelettes and potatoes for breakfast.
Then Michael and I went for a run while Logan chilled with grandpa and watched Ice Age!
The run was so nice! The weather was perfect. A little cool but not cold and the air smelled fishy and crisp. We ran along the bay and saw a ton of people fishing and trying to catch oysters.
We also saw some huge herons looking for their breakfast.
We did just under 3 miles, got back to the house, showered and got ready for the day!
First stop: Oceanside beach. It was 2 miles from the house we were staying in. I love Oceanside because it’s a quiet beach that is rarely crowded.
It was a bit foggy that morning, but not too cold, so that was nice.
Bella had a BLAST running around and being a crazy dog. She loves the beach.
Logan had fun walking up and down the shoreline and playing in the sand.
Then it was lunch time. We headed back and had a mish-mash of leftovers. Leftover pizza, grapes, goat cheese and crackers, plums, trailmix. Totally random but good enough!
Logan went down for a nap and I decided to be lazy and read in bed for a bit and then I fell asleep for a short nap. More to come!
