Refreshed and Ready!


We're back from our vacation....and I missed you guys for sure!  But, I made certain that if I was to be away so long, that I would make up for it with pics galore!  Okay, okay...so maybe looking at other people's trip photos doesn't sound like the most exciting thing in the world...but bear with me....

Hopefully I won't dissappoint :)
My daughter and I flew up to Oregon, while Hubby drove up a few days earlier with our camping gear.  We then drove down the Coast back down to So. California together.  This is what a lot of our mornings looked like :)

This, too...heehee!

Oregon's famous for wild Marionberry bushes...everywhere!
 A bit tart this year, but fantastic in cottage cheese!

Here I'm keeping an eye on my 2 Sweethearts walking down River...oh, and maybe on my cute pedicured toes, too :) (Do you get your toes done before vacationing, too?....Oh, good...it's not just me then :-p)
Can you see Hubby and Mags out there?

How about now? :)

They LOVE the water, which is cold with a capital C! I don't know how my daughter can just jump in!  As for me....

Just up to the ankles is deep enough!

Nothing like tunes and snacks after swimming!
Say Cheese!

But the highlight of our travels had to definately be the animals we saw!
....like this adorable chipmunk....

Banana Slugs...


Roosevelt Elk...

Harbor Seals...


Look at this huge snail....I wish I had a pic of him out and about...he was pitch black!

My daughter was making lots of friends!
From this cute little butterfly....

To this sweet and patient donkey.....

How about a baby opossum...

Would you believe....a baby tiger!

What an amazing experience!

Our vacation was filled with fun and memories that I hope my daughter will carry with her always!

...Heck, even one of the hotels we stayed in had gorgeous sights....these murals were so colorful!






Hope I didn't bore you too much!  I'll be back next post with some new Sea Glass Hair Clips made from pieces we just collected at Glass Beach....
I couldn't wait to make some new ones after the thrill of findings such cool glass, shell and pottery pieces!

Missed you so!

Ok...I am officially jealous! :) I love all the animals you got to see (and hold). The banana slug is cool looking. If our slugs looked like that maybe I wouldn't think they were so icky. :)
