Two family reunions, one class reunion, and countless miles on the van....
We got here last week at the same time a heat wave arrived (coincidence?). We went to the beach the next day and I think 1/2 the state of Oregon took the day off to go there too. I've never seen so many people at the Oregon Coast. We spent a few fun hours on the beach digging and trenching and just having fun. This was Skate's first time at this beach and he got salty, sandy, and soppy (and loved it).
Our snacks got a little sandy too but that's okay.
We bought some great sand digging supplies from Dollar Tree (the same bucket/shovel combo was 2.75 at the beach!). They served us very well as we made our castles and dug a moat.
On our way off the beach and into town (Cannon Beach) we stopped into this gem of a quilt shop. It's the Center Diamond shop and it couldn't have been a nicer store. The gals were so cheerful and chatty and their fabric selection was impeccable. They had all the latest, coolest books and patterns too.
This is my favorite shop in downtown Cannon Beach. It's called Josephine's and I found out the owner is actually named Josephine (how lucky to have such a cute name!).
Get a load of this!! With 3 teenage daughters I need that sparkly sign.
From eye candy to real candy! I always grab oodles of salt water taffy here at Bruce's Candy Kitchen. You can fill your own bags with your favorites and just pay by the pound. Here are Peety and Joey making all the important decisions.
By this time Skate was over-heated and worn out so he was like a kid in a candy shop....if kids in candy shops are cranky.
I hope everyone is doing great and getting some fun summer sewing done! I have a couple fun things planned for when I get home but right now I'm just enjoying the greenery and clouds.
