So, I guess I needed a blog break - a long blog break. I've been busy, though, "nesting" for the arrival that we are getting in 9 weeks. This past weekend, we were able to getaway to the coast for our last trip before the little guy arrives. Rockaway Beach on the Oregon Coast was just what we needed - quiet, relaxing and overflowing with fresh seafood, delicious artisan cheeses and creamy Tillamook ice cream - black walnut, please!! The cottage we rented was what one might call shabby, not chic, but had the most amazing view of twin rocks and the ocean and a lovely patio perfect for reading all of those baby books in preparation for the big day. Here are a couple of photos...
