Last week my parents rented a large beach house in Lincoln City Oregon. There were 17 of us going so we caravan-ed over together. Very nice road trip... our kids didn't want to ride with us. it was lovely!
I'm digging up sand crabs for the kids. Sand crabs are awesome. they have no pinchers and they just tickle your hand as they try to dig into the sand on your skin.
The second day we started making sand castles. Pete and Courtney made theirs first and then I came and made mine. Not bad, considering I haven't made a sand castle in like... 14 years..
This next one is mine.
Oh and yeah.. this piece of cardboard.. that's the only tool we used... that and a large clamming shovel.
Several people stopped along the beach to take pictures. I went back to the beach to check them out later, and someone had walked threw them. nice...
The last night we were there the boys went down tot he docks and bought a bunch of fresh seafood right off the boats. a large tuna and crabs... oh wow they were good.
Grilling fresh tuna.
The morning we left we went back tot he beach with Jill and her family and took pictures together. They turned out fantastic.
And finally I didn't get many pics of Pete and Courtney, so I snapped this one right before we left. I love the look on petes face... haha... he really loves his wife.
Driving back it was just Andy and I and our kids. The rest of the famil was staying one more night in Portland, but we needed to get back.
Noah snapped some pictures in the car. He is finally old enough to sit in the front seat so I traded with him for a few hours.
This picture of Jennica was taken in the rear view mirror.. not bad, noah.
Ah, it was fun. I absolutely love the beach. long walks, jogging, sandcastles, digging for agates. It was fabulous.
Thanks Lincoln City!
