Scenes from the Beach


We just arrived back yesterday from a 4-night stay at the coast with Russell's whole family. This is an annual trip and for the last several years we've stayed at the same house (The Lakehouse) in Pacific City, but this year we ventured down to Waldport to try out a new place.

The verdict?

{Situated at the tip of a peninsula - we walked out of the house right onto the beach with the ocean on one side and the Alsea river on the other. AWESOME. The house had a fully finished basement and attached apartment out the front with 5 bedrooms total plus a secret sleeping room behind closet doors aaaaand 4 1/2 bathrooms altogether - we were in vacation house heaven!}

{and how we ate the rest of the time... basically, make as much as you can and hope for the best! haha} 

Too many pictures? I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself. And yes, I am in mourning that we had to leave and didn't do a "What I Wore" post today because of my sadness. 

Okay fine, I didn't do one because I wore sweats or running shorts the whole time I was away. But I'm still sad! And excited already for next year :)
