I'm Back!!

I'm officially back from my mini vacation :)

It w
as great. We rented a cabin in Waldport, Oregon, just a little north of Newport.
The best thing
about going to those small coastal towns on the Oregon coast, is that there isn't a whole lot to do, except hang out in your little house and do nothing!

It w
as just what I needed.

Our cott
age was right on the beach, literally right outside the living room and bedroom window. You could hear the ocean at night while you fell asleep.

Chloe h
ad a fabulous time. She LOVES the beach. She loved running around, catching her ball, and chasing the birds. She was wiped out at the end of every day. She also really loved the fireplace we had there. Nothing like staying toasty in front of a fire on a chilly, rainy, Oregon coast night.

I'm g
lad I went. I want to go back.

Welcome back! Your vacation sounds great. My daughter goes to college in Oregon and the coast is so beautiful. The 4th of July in Seaside is . . . a blast!

I hope your vacation brought lasting memories and piece of mind.

Hey Kristin!
We did go to the Salty Dawg and we also went to the antique mall there! We stayed at this little cottage right side of the main drag in Waldport.

We bought groceries at Ray's and we also took a little trip to Florence. It was a lot of fun :)
