Night & Day

This is a total travel report. No knitting. The knitting will return next time, of course!

This past weekend, Fred & I went to Oceanside, OR, one of our favorite places to go and unwind. We love this little town on a hill on the coast because it's quiet and not a bit "touristy." It feels like a home away from home for us. This is our third trip and we always stay in the same place--Berni's Castle.

Besides a little knitting on the way down, I did none all weekend. All we did was enjoy the view, walk on the beach, listen to music, eat good food, drink good wine, and have wonderful talks. We both needed to get away from work, and it was a great "goodbye to summer" & "hello autumn" weekend. Now we're both back home, refreshed, and ready to work hard until Thanksgiving break.

The night and day shots were taken from our balcony. It's tiny, but it's covered, and gives a great view of the haystacks. I'd never seen these until I moved to the West Coast. They are majestic, to say the least. The big guy in the foreground has a tunnel cut through it that you can only pass through when the tide is out. Then you can get to the other side and see this.

More stacks!

Just wanted to share the magic.
