Spring Beach Getaway

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

One of my favorite reasons for loving where we live is the fact that it only takes us about an hour and 15 minutes to get from our house to the beach! And the Oregon coast on a gorgeous spring or summer day just can't be beat (unless you're talking about Hawaii or St Thomas or something, then maybe you'll give it a run for its money). We are lucky enough to be able to enjoy Dan's parent's beach house in Lincoln City nearly any time we want. We truly don't utilize this amenity enough! We headed out Friday afternoon after work and got there in time for a walk on the beach with Cooper. The beach is his favorite place in the world, and because of this, he demands whines to get several walks or beach time a day when we are there. We had a low key evening on Friday, which included a walk around the outlet mall and a stop for happy hour before spending the rest of the night at the house watching TV and going to bed early.

Saturday we got up early and took Cooper for his obligatory morning walk on the beach. On our way back to get ready we stopped for some doughnuts and headed back to the house. We had talked to my dad earlier in the week and convinced him to meet us at a beach a few miles from the beach house for lunch Saturday so we met him, walked for a while, explored the sand dunes and enjoyed a yummy lunch together! Saturday evening we got to do one of my favorite things, play Bingo!

Sunday we took our time getting up, took cooper for a walk on the beach, grabbed lunch and headed home early to beat the traffic. Even just the 48 hours away was so nice and refreshing! Of course Sunday night I came down with the stomach flu, but it didn't cloud the 2 nights away with my two favorite guys! Below are some pictures of some of the gorgeous weather we got to enjoy at the coast!
