Summer, Sun & Sand...

It has been a busy summer so far with my parents visiting, graduations, barbecues, parties, weddings, gardening and our special Sunday family dinners. . There have also been many dinners at the local sushi bar (only $1.00 - $1.50 per plate) followed by TCBY yogurt afterwards! The weather has been so lovely that is is hard to stay inside on the computer when the sun is shining and the bees are buzzing outside. My husband and I love to putter around the garden and even take on major projects. We just put in some new sod in the front yard and moved roses and other plants around to make room....all by ourselves...we painted our decks and made a new shade garden, along with our veggie beds that are growing like weeds...whew!

Well we are off to the Oregon coast to spend a couple of days at our "Con-tel" (It is a condo we own that looks like and is run like a hotel!) It is built into the side of the mountain right on the beach. You enter the building on the 9th floor...and then take the elevator down to the 4th floor to our room. When you continue down to the first floor you step right out on to the sand! There is a pool and spa and a beautiful restaurant and lounge up on the 10th floor. The views are incredible...360 views of the ocean and beach with the lights shining on the sand throughout the evening making for some gorgeous sights and even whale watching! We are truly fortunate to be able to enjoy such wonder and beauty!

Hope you have a nice weekend too...put up your feet for a
while and just take in the awe of God's creation!

Wow! I can smell that fresh ocean air all the way in Kansas. What a beautiful place. You enjoy yourself and be sure to share more photos with us of your trip! Nothing in the world beat being by the ocean with a light breeze hearing the waves wit the one you love!
