Phil and I went to the coast last weekend and I loved it. Our cozy cabin, built in the 1940s for fishing, was inviting. The front windows looked out onto the Nestucca River. We loved it. In the mornings there were loons fishing and there were people fishing and kayaking. My husband came to his own conclusions about if you have white hair, then it's more than likely that you won't be rowing the boat. If you have white hair you will be manning the boat's motor.
Front view of cabin and deck. There's a window on either side of front small windows in front. Makes for a wrap around view which was nice.
Cookware in cupboard.
Needless to say, I thought about things I didn't have with me on this trip. No computer, no tv. I didn't truly miss them. I figured that I spend way too much time on the computer and on facebook, email and reading blogs. I have some projects that need finished. I've got a small (machine) quilted piece to finish. It's been in progress for a couple years. A few hours a week on it will get it finished. I need to pursue more work on my photography.
My husband and I had a good time. Reflected a bit on our lives. After almost 32 years of marriage, it's good to talk about that. We are still in love and good friends. He tolerates my photography shoots and is the best tripod carrier in the world. He is my observer as well, especially at the beach. Waves will get you. We actually had one set of binoculars with us this time. I put up with him reading when I'm driving. We were on a windy/bumpy road to/from lighthouse. I can't believe he was reading. I asked at one point if the words were still on the page through all the craziness in the road. He thought that was funny. He said he'd have to tell Justin that most of the words were put back on the pages becuz of the road conditions. Some may be out of order!!
I often want to buy things on our trip but realized that my photography is a gift to myself. Speaking of buying things, we used cash to buy food and a few things, such as fruit and orange juice that I forgot to pack. Only time I used a check card was for gas. And we came home with about $20!! I think that's awesome.
Don't be a crab!! Take your bath!!!
Proposal rock and evening sunset.
A tilted view of the ocean at sunset. I kinda like this.
I will post more photography from our trip soon, with few words. Like a wordless Wednesday.
