seaside snapshots...

Our little place by the beach, "The Gull"... she was the left half of a tiny duplex and was leaky, squeaky, and just a little off kilter but in the end we realized that she was just perfect for us! And at a mere block from town and the beach, what could have been better?

The shops {and licence plates - we saw 4 provinces and 32 states!} were something to see, but it was all the great signs that really brought smiles! Here are just a *few* that I captured...
Some amazing beach houses... we did a LOT of walking, up and down the promenade and the beach... I love that Robyn's shirt matches them all!
These pics were taken at Seaside, Arcadia Beach, and Cannon Beach... although we also visited Astoria, Warrenton, Manzanita {where we had Mexican to celebrate Robyn's birthday!}, Nehalem,  Wheeler, and Mt St. Helen's.
My favorite shots of the trip...

And did ya notice they're all beachy? Because what's a trip to the beach without a little sand in your toes... 
or in a seagull's toes for that matter...

Great pics! Glad you enjoyed yourself. We love the Oregon Coast! We've taken many trips to that area and each time we have to leave we can't wait to go back.
