Weekend at the Beach

On Thursday we noticed that no one had the beach house rented this weekend and since we had nothing on the calendar we decided to head on down. It was suppose to be in the 90's in Portland and the 80's at the beach.

Tessa did a great job of driving all the way to the beach! We got there in time to enjoy a beautiful sunset on the beach.

It was a perfect evening on the beach - no wind!

Even though the weather didn't turn out as the weather man said - it was in the 60's, overcast and even a little drizzly at times we had a great time relaxing.

We played a new card game we had gotten - Legretto, watched Casablanca (Tessa had never seen it), Tessa did some homework, Jim watched the BYU game in the local tavern and Leigh Anne and Tessa went into the quilt shop in Wheeler and picked up some fabric for some Christmas gift projects!
We did enjoy some more time on the beach too. The tide was incredibly high - all the way up to the rocks right before the beach ends! The waves were huge and crashing!

There was a ton of foam on the beach - probably from the huge crashing waves. Tessa told us that one of her siblings had told her that the foam was whale pee. Our bets are on Clark! What do you think??

Sunday morning we went to church at the Neahkahnie Branch in Rockaway and since it was cool and rainy we packed up and headed home.

We are always sad to leave the beach....

Gorgeous pictures--looks like lots of fun! My bet is on Clark for the explanation of the foam.
