Pictures from the beach

We arrived at Beverly Beach, a few miles north of Newport Oregon, about 4:00 Tuesday afternoon.  It was sunny and beautiful while we set up camp.  After dinner we went to the beach and watched the sun go down.  Perfect!

It started to rain Tuesday night after we got back to the trailer.  When we made our reservations the week before the prediction was for occasional showers on Wednesday and Thursday.  Well, that changed to 75-80% chance of showers.  It rained most of the time we were there.  We were very glad for the roomy trailer then, as we spent much of our time inside.  We made a daily run to Starbucks in Newport, and Fred took a long afternoon walk each day and that was it for our outside time.  I did finish a pair of socks, finished big stitching one of the small quilts, and got started quilting Gentle Art.  Turns out the light inside wasn't quite good enough to quilt on dark fabrics, so I gave that up.  We had a lot of time to play games - specifically Phase 10 dice - and it was nice because I won more of the games than Fred did.  (That hardly ever happens!)

Of course, we got up on Friday to clear skies and sun, which made it much easier to pack everything up and come home.  In spite of the rain we had a great time, and have already booked two more camping trips for this summer.
