Rollin down the highway heading for the Seaside.
One minor distraction. . .this car exits for barn sales. Seriously, there was a sign out on the freeway that said ‘barn sale’. Don’t think you’d ever see that in Utah.
So glad we stopped! It had a little something for everyone. We all found fun vintage items.
Strollin down the street heading for the Seashore.
We wandered into a SWEET candy store. Look at the vintage candy boxes hanging on the walls. Of course we didn’t leave empty handed. We each bought a hunk of our favorite fudge. Ann’s is Rocky Road, Joyces is Praline, Peggy’s is dark chocolate salted caramel, and mine is Maple Nut.
Can’t wait to feel the sand beneath our feet.
There is a cool ocean breeze but we’re still happy as ducks in water.
We dined on clam chowder and Dungeness crab. Isn’t that a must when one is at the ocean? It was such a fun day. We decided to head back to Welches, OR before dark and hoped to avoid the Portland rush hour confusion.
We were reversing our directions that told us how to get to the ocean and accidently got off into downtown Portland. Oh, how fun it was trying to find our way back to I-84. The entrance was just out in the middle of nowhere. So different than what we’re use to because ours are always by commercial areas. Good thing we can have fun and laugh about it.
Arrived home about 9:30 and decided we needed a little something.
Nothing like a ‘Brattlesnake Dog’ from a food cart at the town of Government Camp to top off the evening. Some things just taste better on vacation.
