I have always been fueled by stories. The first story that fed me was The Wizard of Oz.  CBS would air it once a year and, from one year old, I would watch.  The concept of fiction meant nothing to me.  Dorothy and her friends and the Wicked Witch with her winged monkey were as real […]

As I said last week, July 30th was a busy day on our trip! After exploring Sunset Bay, we headed up to Shore Acres State Park.  This was a park I had long heard about, but had never visited.  Unlike many state parks on the coast that are basically beaches, this one has an interesting […]

I realized I should have been dating these pictures, so I apologize for that.  Our vacation began on July 28th and, with this post, we are at July 30th.  Buckle in, folks, we’re going to spend a few weeks on July 30th. We manage to pack quite a bit into this day.  We started out […]

Somehow, I’ve gotten three posts out of one day on our vacation.  We started at Cape Perpetua and Thor’s Well before heading the Heceta Head Lighthouse.  In the afternoon, we headed down to Bullard’s Beach State Park, where my husband had heard he could find some fun rocks (not much luck).  My son, however, found […]

After our trip to check out Thor’s Well, we decided to stop at the Heceta Head Lighthouse.  Unfortunately, the lighthouse was closed, but we spent some time on the beach, which was one of our favorites of the trip.  It wasn’t large, but it was good for wading and rock hunting.

There is a specific spot on the Oregon Coast that my husband has long dreamed of visiting.  Last year, we ended up driving right past it, even though we were specifically searching for it.  This year, my husband was determined. That spot is called Thor’s Well, a tidal sink hole that fills with water during […]

We started our first full day at the beach by exploring the area around Florence.  My husband has always enjoyed rock hunting and he found a nearby beach that supposedly had some interesting rocks.  While it was little iffy getting down to the beach (my husband and son had no problem, while I had a […]

First of all, sorry this is late.  We were having some internet (probably router) issues last night when I tried to update this. Second of all, I did want to do a quick plug of other ways to connect here, for cases just like this one.  I’m on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and I’ll post […]
