At the Beach!

We are here at the Oregon Coast for the week!

This is the view from our hotel room! We didn't know when we booked the room that we would actually have an ocean view, but we do! I guess that is the joy of going to the beach in the off season.

We did a bit of sight seeing today. We hit nearly 3 yarn shops, which made me really happy. We went to Coastal Yarns in Cannon Beach, which was really awesome! I got a skein of Noro Silk Garden and a skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock from them. We then went to Creative Beginnings in Seaside. They were alright. They had a lot of different things, like yarn, beads, and scrapbooking supplies all in one shop. We were also going to visit a yarn store in Astoria, but they are closed on Mondays. I guess we'll just have to try them again later! It looked like they carry yarn and fabric, so that should be interesting.

Up and down the coastal highway are these signs for Tsunami Hazard Zones. I thought they were interesting, so I thought I would share! They are kinda funny and kinda scary all at the same time.

Lastly I will leave you with this video of the stormy weather and waves from our window. It was just fun to try to take a little video and see how to post it to my blog. Enjoy!

YAY! I love the beach in the autumn/winter when I can enjoy it more. That's so inspiring and wonderful about your hotel room view too! Happiness

Have a very enjoyable week!
