Whale Watching (Not!)

Went to Depoe Bay to see gray whales migrating north. Sounded like a great idea since this is Whale Watch Week. There were no whales to be found, but we did have a great lunch at Tidal Raves on the north end of town. Fabulous Fish n' Chips, chowder and salad, topped off with Key Lime Pie, and Bread Pudding.

The view was fantastic, overlooking the ocean. whales. After lunch, drove north to Boiler Bay and took the girls for a little walk. It was soooo cold and windy.

Sassy's favorite way to ride in the car is to be perched on the driver's shoulder.

Pacific Dunes Golf - Bandon

Pat & I spent a lovely morning golfing at Pacific Dunes Golf Course in Bandon, Oregon. The day started out partly cloudy, but by noon was quite windy and starting to sprinkle. What a unique and beautiful golf course. Definitely different than any other place we've played.

Guess whose ball is closest?

Brookings Weekend

After a snowy Friday evening drive to Brookings (6 hours!), we had a great weekend with Bill & Darla. On Sabbath, we woke up to sunny, cold weather. Enjoyed a walk on the beach, Bill found a souvenir, before driving to the Smith River and 'drifting' for several hours. Along the way, we stopped and stretched out legs in a beautiful grove of Redwoods. Pat even learned how to row a drift boat. By the end, we were pretty chilled. It was a good thing we had coffee and a heater in the boat. Afterward, we had delicious fish and chips, then it was hot tub time.

It was sunny again on Sunday and we played a scramble at Salmon Run. Of course, the team with the lowest combined handicap (Pat &Darla) won. Although Bill & LeAnne tried their best, it just wasn't good enough.
