We all had the day off today, so we figured that we would go to the coast. The plan was to go to Newport, but we stopped at Lincoln City and had too much fun there. When we got out of the car we were afraid it was going to be too cold to play on the beach, but once we hit the sand, it warmed right up. The tide was really low and we were able to walk on some rocks that we had never seen before. We thought about bringing a change of clothes, but we ended up not bringing any. Needless to say, we all got wet. I, Benson, said that we should know by now that we cannot go to the beach without getting wet.
Even though it was the middle of the day, the sun was really low in the sky, so it made some really cool shadows and reflections in the tide pools.
The kids were having a blast trying to climb on the rocks without getting wet. Jeremy, like his normal self, was jumping without putting too much thought into it. Brooklyn was a bit more hesitant and was thinking about each of her moves a bit more.
I loved this picture of Jeremy...he looks like he is in such deep thought.
We had a really fun time at the beach. We were able to eat at Mo's which is one of my favorite restaurants. Their blackened salmon is so good. We then drove on to Depoe Bay and spent a little more time looking at the ocean. I think that once I retire from the Bureau, we will move to the coast and work for a smaller agency there. That would be great!!
In case you couldn't tell this post was put together by Benson.
