The Double Cross (Pacific City, OR)

Travel Day!  We are moving south to Newport, OR.  We spent time at this RV park before and I loved it.  We will be close to the beach again and near place to explore.
Robin is getting some tail wind.
Here are a couple of photos of the wild rabbits in this RV park in Pacific City.  Don't they look like domestic rabbits?
How cute am I?
I bent down to watched them and even the babies came hopping up to me.  Of course, they were looking for a handout even though someone has fed them already.  They are so cute!
Baby bunnies everywhere!
And here's a couple of beach views.  This one looks towards Pacific City and the tall dune we have to climb over to get to town.  Yea, we decided it was easier to take the car and not fill our shoes with sand.

The one below is part of the dune.  People are all over this area, but I'm not so sure I want to crawl around on the rocks.  I'll stick to taking pictures..
A walk on the beach

Sigh....It is going to be hard to go back to Arizona after a summer on the NW coast.

The Double Cross: A Someday Quilts Mystery featuring Nell Fitzgerald

I am so in love with this series!  I hope Clare plans to write many more Someday Quilts Mysteries!  I barely finished this one and I am already reading The Devil's Puzzle: A Someday Quilts Mystery.

Nell, her grandmother - Eleanor, and Suzanne have been asked to help with the opening of a new quilt resort.  How exciting!  While Suzanne teaches a class, Eleanor will help with opening a quilt shop at the resort.

This one is filled with so many twists it was amazing I could keep them straight.  I figured out the killer quickly, but Clare did a wonderful job of making me doubt myself.

One thing that was addressed in this story was some men's attitudes towards quilters and getting asked that most irritating and condescending question:  Why cut up perfectly good fabric and sew it back together?  I usually answer with I make them prettier and more useful.  Who wants to wrap themselves in a couple of yards of cotton on a cold winter's night?

Lots of quilt talk, bizarre happenings, strange characters, and a murder to solve keeps this story moving in constant motion.
Happy Quilting!


  1. Wonderful photos, I wanna take those bunnies home! Sounds like a great book too! Thanks for stopping by my blog as well :)

  2. I just love rocky coastlines. So gorgeous. Those bunnies do look domestic. Wonder if they could have descended from a couple of escapees?

  3. Thanks for sharing those pretty pics! The rabbits are soooo cute :)

  4. Beautiful pics!! This is an area I would love to explore someday....thank you for taking me there!

  5. Those rabbits sure look domestic to me too. I love the robin picture. I haven't begun my books yet. I started with my Anne Perry Victorian mysteries.

  6. The photos are wonderful! I enjoyed this post so much, thank you! You are amazingly good at sharing your impressions and atmosphere of places you have visited. The beach views are breathtaking. And the bunnies are so cute, especially the brown one - I will show them to my daughter today. Thank you!
