I was able to take three weeks off of work so we took a big vacation. We went to Hells Canyon, Bend, Newport and Seaside. I thought three weeks in our trailer with all six of us would drive me crazy, but it turned out to be a lot of fun.
Our last stop was Seaside. We stayed here five days. One morning we rented a six seater bike and rode around town.
There were a couple of hills that we rode up. It expected it to be easier to peddle up with four of us peddling, but it wasn't.
We went to Cannon Beach and saw Haystack rock. We were also able to find a few sand dollar shells.
We went swimming quite a bit.
We met up with my cousin Teresa and her family for the week here. I told our kids not to get their clothes wet on the beach. Of coarse everyone ended up riding in the back of the truck because the were covered from head to toe with water and sand.
We ate at The Chowder Bowl. It was fun trying to find a table for eleven.
We had to stop and get pictures at every little statue.
We spent our days playing pickleball ....
miniature golfing ....
and squeezing into phone booths.
The kids wanted to see the sea lions, so off we went to the Sea Lion Caves.
We caught quite a few.
It was so cold. We were all huddled together under blankets and jackets.
