Creative Highways: Newts, Dunes, and Sasquatch Sightings on the Oregon Coast
Posted Jul 08 2009 8:38am
Since this past Friday, July 3, we have been spending marvelous, long days with our dear friends, Kendra, Adam, and their dog, Jake. We arrived in Corvallis, Oregon on Friday afternoon, where Kendra and Adam currently live. Both are originally from West Virginia, but are now spending a few years in Corvallis while Kendra gets her Masters. Since they don't live in the next state over from ours anymore, it was quite a pleasure to reunite once again.
We spent the Fourth of July weekend camping along the Oregon Coast, sampling local beers (mostly Rogue brewery), eating seafood, hiking along the dunes and coastal forests, and having long coffee and chatting sessions every morning. It was a wonderful time with old, great friends.
Here is a sampling of the fun times we had:
Sadie loves digging along the sea shore. She chases rocks we throw to her, then digs them into holes and finds them again.
Sadie waits with bated breath as Adam prepares to launch a rock down the shore.
