The Babes at the Beach

Last weekend was our early trek to the beach.  This time we stayed at our house in Manzanita.  The weather was Beach Babe Perfect.  It never fails - if we head to the beach, the weather will be good.  It knows we are coming - always!!

We had blue skies, no wind and temperatures in the fifties - pretty perfect for the beach in March.

On Friday we spent some time in Cannon Beach doing a little shopping and lunching.  We found a wonderful new shop that we loved exploring - it was huge and so many pretty things.  I could have taken the whole store home with me!

We then found a new place for lunch that was recommended by the locals - Cheris.  Everything is made fresh.  The fish & chips was highly recommended so April and I split an order - it was delicious and made from fresh tuna.  I don't like tuna but this was delicious!

After a little more shopping we headed down to Manzanita.  We enjoyed Marzano's pizza for dinner and a movie.

Saturday we headed to Wandas for breakfast - yum!

Then we headed into Wheeler for a little antiquing - they have a great antique mall.  We all found some treasures.  Shauna found a sideboard and a chair so she will be making another trip down to the beach to pick them up.  I found a few new pieces of milk glass for my collection.


We even explored the Old Wheeler Hotel which is suppose to be haunted!  They let us come in and walk around and check out some of the darling guest rooms.

I even found a treasure - an old doll case.  Loved the color and have all kinds of ideas for it.

We then headed to the Manzanita dump where we found a few more treasures!

We enjoyed dinner at the Mexican place in Manzanita and another movie.  We also enjoyed some lovely sunsets.

Waiting for the sun to set.

  So grateful for these wonderful women who I have known for over 20 years!

Sunday was a leisurely morning before we headed home.  We stopped for lunch at the bakery in Manzanita and enjoyed a yummy cinnamon roll and panini sandwich

 It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend with wonderful friends!

Snow in March

March 22nd - It snowed - again!

We went to bed with a few flakes coming down sure that it would be gone in the morning and  we woke up to three inches - in March.  A little strange, even for Portland.  It was enough snow to give the kiddos a 2 hour delay at school.

Out of habit, if I wake up to snow I still get online and check the school status and even felt a little excited for the kids that they got to go to school late.
