Updated: RVing on the Oregon Coast

We had a very fun week-end in the RV with friends Nancy and Diane.  We drove through Longview, Astoria and stayed for 3 nights in Cannon Beach, on the Pacific Ocean.  The Oregon coast is quite marvelous (dare I say nicer than the Washington coast?)  This should be an album of some of our  photos [Oh my, I hope I managed to change this and you should be able to click to the photos I've saved.]

Otherwise, what's new?  Not a whole lot.  We're home now for 3 days and then head out with the RVing Women's group, in Chehalis for the week-end.  Back for 4 days and then head out to Lincoln Rock State Park.  We've been hearing how wonderful Lincoln Rock is, for years, so gonna give it a try.  It just is too bad that it all comes at once.  It doesn't rain, but it pours - as they say.

Is anyone reading something perfect for summer, at the moment?  I recently learned of Nicola Upson and her Josephine Tey books.  I'm quite enjoying them (3 so far).  I tend to find an author I like and then read just about everything they have written or wait, with baited breath, for the next publication.  (a la Louise Penney).  Always on the lookout for a good read.

On the sewing/quilting front, I'll hand off my colored blocks (see last post) for Alayne to take to Stashbusters for me.  I have the backing ready for my Spagenburger hanging, I need to get some batting for a couple of other finished tops (bigger ones) and start the hand quilting on the Tree of Life medallion (center) that Dieuwke gave me, when we were in Holland.  Can't let those fingers get too stiff, you know.  :-)

Friday:  June 14  As Google doesn't work properly, here are the photos.  Sorry for doing it this way.


  1. I couldn't open the photos, maybe something to do with the rights/autorization. Caro

  2. Couldn't open them either but it sounds like you had a nice trip and another one coming up. At our last trip I bought Defending Jacob by William Landay wich I am reading now. Great book!

  3. Wow what amazing photos, looks like you hd a fab time. I hope you are well. Emma xxx
