Today I’m Sharing a Day in Our Life
here on the Oregon Coast!
When my sister and her guy came up to visit recently, we made sure to try and squeeze as much coastal Oregon goodness as we could into their visit! One day while Jim was working, (Poor Jim!) Austin and I played tour guide and we headed out to the beach.
This included a trip to
Charleston Harbor, where we had a
fabulous seafood lunch.
After we ate, we naturally went down
to the wharf to buy more seafood for dinner.
It’s hard to pass up. This is the good stuff.
Ultra fresh. Right off the boats!
You can buy your crab live
to take home and cook..
or pre-cooked and waiting on ice for you!
We picked ours from the big salt water tank.
They cleaned and cooked it there.
Totally worth the few extra dollars.
(I even caught Austin smiling!)
Even though the T-shirt says otherwise!
And then you turn around and
is staring at you.
I think I’ll go take some more pictures…
and make sure to stay out of the water!
There are a lot of hard working folks here where I live. Guys that fish for a living and depend on the Salmon, Halibut, Cod, Tuna and Crab they catch. We really like to buy right from the source and support the local economy.
After we ate and shopped, we headed out towards Simpson Reef to see the Sea Lions.
It was a gorgeous day,
but the further out we got,
the colder it got.
It was so foggy… which is often the case!
So the Sea Lion are hard to see.
You can always hear them though.
Sorry, this was the best I could do.
(used to sunny California)
But it is gorgeous it it’s own special way.
Raw and powerful.
There is much more to our coastline.
Like Shore Acres Park.
We really do get sun sometimes.
Though all our rain, makes it what it is…
and it’s worth it in the long run.
It really is wonderful to live in a place
that is so rich with history
and to have nature all around us.
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of where I live.
The wind is howling as I type.
We are bracing for a storm.
Lighting and 90MPH winds are expected.
Winter has arrived.
