must . . . touch . . . sea urchin . . .

The oldest two varmints are off for their first day of what The Hulk calls "head learning." I have some curtains to hem, laundry to do, a plumber to call, a vacation to plan--my only criterion is that there must be tide pools with creatures in them, and you would not believe how that restricts our choices. We're thinking the Oregon coast, probably near Cannon Beach--anybody out there have some good suggestions?

We cleaned up at the fair--so much better than baked goods! Some blues, some reds. And I forgot to go get my Blue Hubbard, frown.

The hay shelter is coming tomorrow. I'm putting a poll on the sidebar and I want everybody to tell me what to do about our goat operation.

Have you been to Newport? That has the great aquarium.
I like Cannon Beach. I think Gearhart is near there, and that's where one of my friends always goes. It's a little quieter than CB.
I am sorry about the goat quandary.

One of the houses we're looking at is in Gearhart. We're torn between that and Manzanita--Manzanita is closer to Tillamook, after all.

Well, I can see the appeal of Tillamook. Such ice cream! And there's the forestry museum.

This is the place: http://www.tillamookforestcenter.org/about_10.html

Ooh, all the places tipsybaker suggested are great. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Newport. Really, you can't go wrong with the Oregon Coast. You'll love the cheese factory at Tillamook (yeah, the ice cream is good there too).

But ... what happened to you coming to SC? Are you still coming or is Oregon replacing SC? Please say you are still coming...

Layne said...

I'm hoping to. We'll have to see how cara the flights are.

Do you want to continue with milking/feeding/doctoring/butchering goats? If you do then get another one because they are herd animals and enjoy company. If you can't take one more thing when it comes to Tracy, then she needs to find a home elsewhere. Remember no more haying if she goes too.

I have no idea which beach would be better but I'm all for cheese. Warm, melty cheese.... crusty whole wheat bread...... creamy tomato soup.... Mmmmm..... Good luck, hope that ya'll have a great time.
