Oregon Coast 2009

Yes, we're just back from a week of vacation in Oregon.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh................... :0)

First, meet the sponsors of this vacation, Grandpa and Grandma Grasshopper. standing on the deck of our rented vacation house:

The Oregon Coast isn't exactly known for balmy temperatures, and our first couple of days were on the cool side, with some misty rain from time to time.
No problema.
We brought games, movies, and books.
And besides, we go out anyway :0)

We catch (and release) all kinds of creatures in the tide pools... sea stars, hermit crabs, fish, some disgusting wormy looking things, chitons, etc.

Buckets come in handy for carrying all kinds of things.
Like flip-flops.

Caves can be explored in any weather.

And most days were fine :0)
Usually with plenty of wind for flying kites.

Wyatt is the master of the stunt kite.

Gunnar was getting the hang of it.

And Tate was content to fly a kite or just watch.

And, of course, the obligatory beautiful sunsets :0)

These last two, taken by Tate.
