Home from Seaside Oregon

Our little mini vacay to the coast was fabulous... The sun came out almost every evening. {which I was very glad for}


Seaside Oregon

We took a few strolls along Broadway

And a trip to the coast wouldn't be the same without a stop at the Bowpicker. Yummy...
Albacore tuna lightly beer battered and fried with a side of steak fries. Oh so good...

Lunch at the Bowpicker

Now it's back to reality. blah... LOL.
But it's SUNNY at my house finally! And I am a HAPPY - HAPPY Camper!

Many years ago, my husband's job had us living in Longview WA -- the few years that we were there, my favorite thing to do was escape to the Oregon Coast -- I have such fond memories of Seaside. Thanks for taking me along this morning :)

Blessings!

Look how big your grandbaby has gotten! She's a cutie.
I love Seaside. We used to go there often when we lived in Vancouver, Washington. Such an idealic place, especially when the sun shines.

No wind?? figures, the year I don't go, no wind.
I'm totally bookmarking this for my future trip to oregon. I've been whining to corrie for a while now. We NEED to go.

Heather said...

When I imagine the perfect little beach town it always seems to look like Seaside. I live there briefly and I loved going for walks and looking at all the cute little house and their beautiful gardens! I'd love to move closer so I can visit again!

Rachel Lynn said...

Oh how I wish we could go all the way out to Oregon on our vacay. Beer-battered tuna and Eclair Elephant ears! My mouth is watering!

regan said...

I think Elephant Ears must be a Pacific Northwest thing, cuz I've never seen them anywhere else! We used to get them at the Pike Place Market in Seattle when I was a kid. Always cinnamon/sugar though.....never had an eclair one.....dang that looked good! I think I need to learn to make them!

CJ said...

If Des and Corrie will plan to meet up with you and me, Jodi, that would be an AWESOME time on the Oregon coast!!!

mamabug said...

I have a few questions running through my mind as I have always wanted to make this a family tradition with our grown children. 1. Do you own or rent the house? 2 If you rent who do you go through to get a nice listing for a house to rent? My husband and I have next week off and we live in NORTHERN California. I would love to scope this out for next year or maybe Thanksgiving :) thank you kathiebugb@gmail.com
