The Coast and My Godparents

We returned home from the Oregon Coast yesterday. I wanted to stay there, but I was also looking forward to sleeping in my own bed! After packing up, we drove to Devil's PunchBowl to walk down to the beach there. Lots of surfers there. It was also warmer because it was more sheltered from the wind. Then, on south to Newport where we ate lunch before heading home.

We tried to get to the beach every day. I had a great time beach combing on Friday, found lots of beach treasures. We also got in some shopping at local stores, went to the arcade/casino, we went to Mo's, saw great sunsets, and listened to the surf.

My godparents showed up Friday night. At the time, we were having dinner at the Lighthouse Brew Pub, after spending time at Road's End Beach and then the arcade/casino. I ended up losing $30 (after winning $20 a few days before), for a net loss of a $10 contribution to the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. Not too shabby, I think. I got to play a few hours for that.

My godparents live in Omak, Washington. We hadn't seen them in several years, so it was great to see them. They stayed with us at the house in Lincoln City and then at my house last night. Mom and I played double pinochle with them until 12:30am, so I spent most of today being tired. But it was fun! I hadn't played pinochle in years! I think I won more than I lost. Anyway, it was a good visit with P. And K. Thanks for visiting!

I would say that despite the fact that it was a funky house and we were on the bay, it was still a good time. Fun to get away for a few days. I also think I will try to make it to the Coast at least once a month. I think Eddie had fun, too. I will try to post pics soon!
