Saturday dawned bright and early - the weather was amazing...we could see our breath when we walked out of the hotel at 7:30 am. It was that chilly.
The drive from Portland to Cannon Beach was perfect. Foggy mountains looming in the distance, grand old pines on either side of the road, fun little road-side farmer's markets. Divine.
The whole reason we made the trip to Oregon was to celebrate the wedding of Mr. B's childhood buddy. Here they are in their wedding duds before heading down to the shore for the nautical nuptials. (Yup, I just used alliteration for the second time in this post - I'm cheesy like that.)
Look at this. It's like the Brawny Man and Mr. Clean. Seriously - makes me want to clean my kitchen...
I'm in love with this Grandpa (the groom's) and his girlfriend.
They've been "goin' together for about a year now."
Know what else I love?
And this little, grumpy baby.
And this beach.
And that a huge rock back there.
It was chilly on the beach and he still had a cold. Give him a break.
Pretty wedding site with Mason jars of beach rocks and shells and sand.
I was checking out the bride's sweet, feathered hair clip and her luscious white flowers.
She looked so beautiful - and rightly so.
After the wedding and small brunch gathering, we changed out of our fancies and donned some blue jeans. We strolled around the town - not yet ready to get back in the car and head to the city - and made our way to the beach.
Stealthy photos of stranger's beachfront homes.
I get excited about things like salt water and mountains...heck, I even get excited about rolling hills.
Beginning to think I'm not cut out for endless corn fields and the occasional silo sighting.
The pleasure of dipping my toes in the icy Pacific might just last me all Summer long...
This menu makes me blush...
Sugar-holic dream: Buckets of Donuts.
I got the bacon maple bar.
Yeah, a donut with bacon on top.
Voodoo Donuts II is housed in a pepto pink brick building.
A fitting color for a tummy-ache waiting to happen.
So yeah, I loved our trip.
Oregon, you haven't seen the last of us...
