Our son Shaun drove down from the Seattle area to spend the weekend with us. We are not sure when we will be back this way, so I was extra happy that he managed to make it down here. He just started a new job with an IT company and it sounds like he is staying very busy.
With all our travels when Shaun was young, he has never seen the Oregon coast. As luck would have it...he still did not see much of this area thanks to bad weather all day Saturday. He got to see a little bit of the Haystack in Cannon Beach, but after that visibility went down to 20 or less feet. Since we were not having any luck showing him the coast, we took him to Manzanita for a delicious lunch at Left Coast - a small Mexican restaurant serving huge delicious burritos and enchiladas.
Then, we drove to Astoria to see some of the old homes in the area. At least, Sunday turned into a half-way decent day for his drive home.
I have been in love with this Queen Anne house since I first saw it last year.Flavel House.
Astoria Column. The Column was about the only thing we could see. The wind was blowing harder so we did not climb the stairs to the top.
Well, it is time for me to get ready to go shopping and to start packing...and the cats are begging to go outside. Oh look! The sun is out. I guess I better blow the dust off my sunglasses, eh?
