Oregon Coast birthday runaway

Hi there. Yesterday was my birthday. I decided to run away for the day. Rather than a detailed narrative, let me show you some pictures from my trip which began at the South Beach Post Office, meandered north to Robert’s Bookshop in Lincoln City, then lunch at Kyllos, some time on the beach, a little antiquing and a visit to the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Oh, and a quick stop at Fred Meyer to grab chicken, sushi and red velvet cake for dinner. I rounded out the day with the three-hour finale of “The Bachelor.” Perfect.

Located on the D River in Lincoln City, Kyllo’s offered a stuffed salmon special that was fabulous.

I had a horse like this when I was little. Her name was Susie. Ah, memories. Little cowboy hat, little red boots . . .

You’ve got to go to Granny’s and Rocking Horse Antiques when you’re in Lincoln City.

It was crazy cold, but the wide open spaces at the Nestucca Bay Wildlife Refuge warm the soul.
