A Day at the Beach - Lincoln City
Lars and I spent the weekend with Bob, Des, Angie and Jack at their beach house, which has a beautiful view of the ocean.
Lars and I drove down to the beach on Saturday, right after Kara's team had their first home game.
Sunday afternoon we all drove down to the beach access, which was about five minutes from the house.
See, here in Oregon, the ocean and beach are public property.
No one can own the beach. That is just one of the reasons why living on the West Coast is soooo wonderful.
Anyone can visit the ocean and enjoy it. You don't have to be rich to walk along the sandy beaches. So we did.
But that was just part of the fun.
Angie and I did some bead work Sunday afternoon. Together we designed a pair of earrings and then Angie designed a pair all by herself, too.
Des turned the designs into earrings, which they gave to me as a gift.
Then we ate chocolate covered bananas, which Angie made for us as a treat.
We (Des and I) also worked on some of our knitting.
Des made this beautiful Scotty bag by knitting the material and then felting it. She said it would be easy to hide any mistakes with felting - not that she needed to hide anything - I'm sure all of her projects have been perfect. But, I'm going to have to try that felting.
Des made three beautiful bags. And, it looks like a fun project to try.
Coming home, along Highway 101, we saw the most beautiful trees and fall colors - it was peaceful, relaxing and a wonderful weekend. Even if we were, like Kara clarified for me, first losers.
That's what she calls coming in Second Place - at Trivial Pursuit.
