Pacific City






On September 25th, we went to the beach with my mom and dad. It was a beautiful day and we decided to go to a beach that I hadn't been to since I was a young girl. It was so enjoyable and the weather was perfect.

My children will not be home this weekend, so I am going back tomorrow morning and staying all day. I feel at peace at the ocean and have been needing to get away and do some thinking. I will probably climb the dunes, read some, explore the tide pools, listen to the waves and just enjoy the sunshine. It is supposed to be another beautiful weekend.

My husband went with me here one time when we were on the motorcycle. There was a small craft fair in the parking lot. We never did go out on the beach. I am not sure why, but we really missed out.

The times that I was here as a child were fond memories of racing up the dunes with my brothers. We would roll down the hill. That was what I told Nick to do, and he loved it!
I find it much easier to run down the hill now. I'm getting too old to be rolling down the hills. :)

If you click on the link above you will be taken to all the pictures that I took that day, or you can just look at the few I included here.

Tires Update

Just had to tell everyone what wonderful cousins I have. My cousin Vince insisted that he was going to take care of my tires. So, yesterday I went up to the Les Shwab in Canby and they put them on for me. This time I got some with a warranty and NOT low profile. They should last a couple of years. My care drives so much better and doesn't pull to the right like it did before.
It was pulling really bad after I had my car aligned last year. I kept telling everyone that it wasn't the normal little pull but it was the kind that will throw you in the ditch if you even loosen your grip for a second. I was told it was the road, or that it was supposed to do that, anything but them believing me. I guess they all think that I am a dumb blonde. Well, now there is no pull, only the gradual moving to the right as a car is supposed to do.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Vince and Tami for you kindness!!! I love you guys!
