I can't begin to say how much I love the oregon coast

Earlier this week, we packed the doggies in the car and took off for a little beach time, down on the oregon coast around Tillamook. My favorite place in the whole world.
It rained, the sun shone, and a good time was had by all.

We saw the cape mears lighthouse

and hung out on the beach, looking for agates. And, I have to say, found a whole bucketfull. I was one happy rock searcher.

On the way home, we stopped at a cool little yarn shop in portland called Twisted.
They had all their dream in color smooshy on sale 25percent off. Who can resist a good sale? This isn't really as orange as it looks. It's going to be a girasole. (some day)

And, as promised, the finished traveling sweater.....

Later, stash enhancements, Lace KAL, and Hammelies progress. (now where IS that damn mail man!?!)

Love the sweater. I totally agree that the oregon coast is a fabulous vacation spot. Truthfully if I worked in some other industry then I do I think I'd try and find a way to move up there.
