Getting out of Dodge....








We had a very productive long weekend.On Saturday we hiked around the waterfalls in the gorge, and today we visited the Ocean yet again. It was a beautiful sunny drive out to the coast but a high tide and several storms that are lined up out in the ocean made wandering along the beach pretty much impossible. I don't remember ever seeing the waves so high. The waves at Oceanside pretty much swallowed up the entire beach. Amazing to watch but not the place to fly a kite, not this time at least.
Sophie and I still managed to find quite a few agates near the bay but the waves were very sneaky and stong....which made this mama quite paranoid.
Is it wrong to feed seagulls egg salad?
This time we made it home before dark, a much more relaxing drive through the mountains.
Back to city life again...

Thank you Nicole. I will post a photo of our treasures too. They always get scattered about in the car on the way home and in pockets. I will round them up.Thanks for asking!
