Beach Weekend

DH and I went to the beach this past weekend to visit my BF. While we had some time alone, we went to the beach and got some great pictures! We went to Rockaway Beach, and then Oceanside, both in Oregon in Tillamook County. The first day at Rockaway Beach, was a beautiful day at the Oregon Coast, especially in March!





This is us at Rockaway Beach, don't ya love timers? The fence post took this picture!

My Dear Husband, Cliff....He found a giganto walking stick!



So, this is me, trying to be less shy with the camera. Though it is not the most flattering photo ever, at least I was having fun!


A seagull, the second day at Oceanside. It was not sunny today!


I just love the beach in Oregon, no matter what the weather, I always have a great time. It is only 1-2 hours away, depending on where you go, I really should go more often! I am the type of person who can just hang out on/at the beach all day long and do nothing. I love the smells, sights, sounds of the beach. I don't need all the commercialization to have fun. I really enjoy the small beaches, they are less crowded. I don't need to shop, just put my feet in the sand, even if it is cold and wet!!!

That pic of you and your hubby is so sweet. The fence post did a great job! ;)

I too am a beach lover. I used to live in Monterey, Ca when I was a kid. We were at the beach all the time. If you ever have a Monday or Tuesday of let me know and we can go do a beach day. (sans my kiddo. I love him but sometimes mommy needs a little down time with friends.)

Oh and kudos on handing the camera over! The more you do it the easier it gets!

Your photos are great. And I understand about being less shy in front of the camera. I would much rather be taking the pictures instead of being in them. ;-)

Beautiful pictures!! You and your hubby are just so cute together, and the picture of you on the rock is adorable!

I love going to the beach as well, but I'm more of a CA beach gal. I like to ride the waves and get a tan. Can't really do that here in WA...
