The rain let up for a few hours, and we took study break and headed for the beach.  We were greeted with an odd haze over the sand and the sea.  There is also a substance we have never seen before, looks like foam, but is not quite.

Looks a little like a pancake on the grill ready to be turned over.

Holly gave it a kick, the wind caught it and it rolled for some distance while leaving a trail of its  parts behind, much like a leprous snowball.

In the dismal of a winter day, it is nice to know that my friend Sammy is still looking after us. You can always identify Sammy, he is the seagull with the red spot on the bottom front of his beak. There are poser Sammy’s , but the real Sammy is the one who is watching you.

Sarah is still wondering about the weird foam, but enjoying the freedom from the indoors.

Holly hates the beach, until we get there, then she is in ecstasy, realizing she is out doors and free.

We continue our walk to Seaside.

And we encounter a dinosaur on the way. They are much more colorful in real life, than the ones in our science books. Jurassic Park needs to be closed down before they resurrect something dangerous.

We found Lewis and Clark at the end of Broadway in Seaside, but they looked very focused so we did not bother them.

Mr. Steve Raymond, we went here in your honor, but since we did not get up in time, they were closed.

We decided to walk on the prom to get back to the car. Walking on the Beach is way too much work.

Athena found some fowl on her evening walk, and caught a beautiful sunset to boot.

All the rain and cold have me feeling down, I heard that Bacon fixes all ills. So I went to the store and bought beef bacon. It was only $1.00 per strip!

I cooked us up some whole grain toast.

What?! Bacon is only this big when cooked? I feel ripped off, and its not helping my mood at all. That is not enough food for any one!

We fixed that problem by adding 6 eggs and stirring vigorously.

I am happy, I served breakfast, and found my Kindle! The down side is, I must have been allergic to the bacon. Down with migraine for 24hrs.

We hit down town Seaside on Broadway. This is really a happening place on Friday nights. Most everything closed at 6pm. No wonder kids get in so much trouble in small towns. That’s it, three cars on Broadway.

Well, it is more like Radiator Springs than the strip.  There you have it, the city of Seaside at its finest.

The Stone family rejoined us, and we went to see the Peter Ireadale.

Alex Stone, 2yrs old, was with us, he said “I saw the ship. It was made of sticks.” On the way back, he wanted to splash in a puddle the size of a large pond. Holly said don’t go in the water. Alex Said “Why, are their alligators?” Holly said, “Why would you think that?” Alex said “There is only on shoe on the sand next to the pond” That, my friends, is deductive reasoning at its best.  Children are great fun, they always keep your perspective on its toes.

That is folks, another week in soggy Western Oregon down the drain. Judging by this picture they are not expecting the rain to stop any time soon. Good Evening and good night….. Meet the “5 Rolling Stones“
