Coastal Oregon in the Summertime - photo heavy

Thursday, August 16, 2012

It is SO nice to be able to take full vacation days again! The insanity of my job appears to be over for the most part, and I donít feel so overwhelmed coming back after taking a day off. Shoot, Iím actually working some 8 hour days again! I think last week was first week in over 18 months that I entered multiple 8 hour days into the payroll system.

Kate (KEakman) and I took this past Wednesday (since Iím so far behind on Blogging, this is now 2 Wednesdayís ago!) off for a girls day at the beach. We met up at my house and were on the road before 8. Kate had done some research, she is SO good at research, and we decided to start out at Oswald West State Park, hike the ocean side south bound, at the end of that trail cross the highway and head up Neahkahnie Mountain.

These were snapped below the parking area, before we crossed the stream to head south.

Kate snapped this one of me being silly on the suspension bridge. Loved this bridge, but more on that later.

Is it a dinosaur? or a Giraffe?

And a whole bunch of pictures of things that caught my eye!

Okay, that's it for now, watch for installment number two either later today or tomorrow.

Oh, and for those who are following my ramblings about my personal life....

(sorry Gaye, I like this name better)

The Days Of Robin's Life

Fabulous dinner out with Mr Nike last night. Used a groupon I'd bought a few days ago to my absolutely favorite Lebannese restaurant - Habibi. He was duly impressed with my choice I do believe. Then we walked the 2 blocks to the waterfront, strolled south to the Hawthorne Bridge, and then he delivered me back to my car. A nice evening getting to know each other just a little bit more.

    Love the photos, looks like you and Kate had a great time. And so good to hear your work hours are returning to norma. I saw the Groupon for Habibi but had never been there and passed on it. Bummer. Glad you and Mr. Nike Friday had a nice time.

    It looks so pretty, but idon't think I would like that suspension bridge.

Glad you have a dress - teal is one of my fav colors - if I lived on the same coast ad you I'd come raid your closet! Can't wait to see photos of the big day.

    Sooooooo pretty. I love living in Vermont but if I didn't live here, I could totally see myself living in Portland instead... very similar vibes between Portland OR and Burlington VT from what I can tell... and great beautiful nature as well.
