One of the highlights of our our coastal anniversary trip was the ocean was in her full glory. The video above shows just a little bit of the great waves that were happening. Shore Acres Park sits high on a cliff over looking the ocean below. The swells were 20 to 30 feet but once they hit the rocks the waves reached up to 200 ft in the air. It truly was magnificent to see. God is amazing with all the beauty he shares with us. I will post pics of the trip later but had to share is video now, enjoy.

First couple pictures are of the Columbia River outside of Portland. It is such a pretty area, so peaceful.
I love old barns and abandoned houses, something special there. I look at them on the side of the road and often wonder about its past. Who lived here, why did they just leave, is there cool stuff left behind?
We finally made it to Kimberly, Oregon. Well um....to be truthful I was a bit disappointed. But now that I think about it, I really wouldn't mind living in a itty bitty teeny weeny town like this. This picture and the next one show what the town is. Not exactly what I had pictures or even been told. We were told that during the summer this is a great place to get fresh produce....hmmm....where?
This was just amazing to me. We were on top of a summit looking out. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the spring when everything is nice and green.
We stopped in Pendleton at the Woolen Mills.
Nice stuff there.
Mt. Hood popping out for a picture. She was playing hide and seek with me all afternoon and evening.

I am on "U Can't Knit Just 1" if you watch the side bar you can see all the teams progress.
I really enjoyed taking part in the game last year and am looking forward to playing this year. I have my tag partners goodies all ready and my needles are empty and ready to go. Is the box here yet....why do I have to wait to have so much fun?

To us it looks coastal, it has a nice relaxing feel to Scott an I. Which is what we wanted. I know it is hard to see in the pics, but the flooring reminds me of wet sand. More like Northern California sand. It has a nice shine to it, so it always looks wet....gotta love that.
We will be working on the 1/2 bath this weekend and hope to get most if not all of it done....fingers crossed. We are planning on taking Sunday, Easter, off and enjoying the day.

While taking a break from all the work yesterday I snapped some pictures of our hummingbirds. These were taken from in the house looking out the front window. I would say that this is a sign that Spring is here, but at our house we have hummers year round. We are one of the only houses in our neighborhood that keeps a feeder up all year. This is most likely why we get so many of the little beauties. The feeder is just about 2 or 3 feet from our front window.

Of course i forgot to take my before pics....i really need to start doing that. Anyways the first pic here is of the vanity area, if you look at the walls you can see the texture i put up.
The next picture is where the tub is usually at....lol. We were so worried that the sub floor would have to be replaced. We had some serious leak issues and are so grateful that the bones of the house are fine, for the most part. We do have to replace one 2x6 in the floor, which just amazes me.
The last picture here is what you see when you first walk into the bathroom and look straight ahead. The toilet is usually there...lol. As you can see we tore up the floor and will be replacing it with new vinyl. I can't wait for tomorrow, the crew will be back to install the tub unit and then we can finish our work. I will keep you posted on the progress.
Right now the color is a nice light sage green. We are ready for a change wait until you see the color we are painting.

He didn't fill me in on his plans until the last minute so to speak. We spent the day at the coast playing and taking our time getting to Yachats, Oregon where the Log Church Museum is, which is where the ceremony took place.
On the way we had to stop just north of Sea lion caves to get a picture of Hecta Head Lighthouse. And look for sea lions below, but there weren't any out playing.
Then we stopped at Devil's Churn and hiked part of the trail and watched the waves.
The tide is coming in can you tell. The waves crash up through an inlet and blow sea water up in the air giving everyone a shower.
There was a Celtic harpist. She played wonderful music before the ceremony. Then the Ministry spoke a bit about the group gathered. There was about 29 couples renewing their marriage vows. She estimated there was 627 yrs of marriage in the room. How could you not feel special there.
