A Wonderful Time of Rest

Do you ever feel like you just have to get some rest?  Of course you would answer yes to that question.  Sometimes getting away for a few days is just the perfect thing.  My husband and I had the opportunity to do just that last week.  I meant to post about this right away but when I uploaded the pictures to my computer they "disappeared", or so I thought, I just found them this morning. 
We took a little trip to one of our favorite places to go, the Pacific Ocean.  It takes us a about three and a half hours to get there depending on the I-5 traffic.  This trip we decided to take our dog Emmy.
She was thrilled but a little anxious and our car was full of her wonderful black hair by the time we arrived.
We took many walks on the beach.  We saw blue sky every day while those at home experienced grey skies and lots of fog.
Emmy is nine years old now so chasing the ball was exciting for her but she did get worn out a little faster than she used to.
The tide was pretty low this day.

This is the place we stayed, just a short walk to the beach.

On our morning walk the frost was pretty heavy but the sky was blue and the air was crisp and clean.
I am not sure how thrilled Pat is about being in most of my pictures but thats what happens when the camera is in my hands.

This was not my favorite picture but you can tell that I wasn't to concerned about my appearance, I was too busy relaxing loving the sunshine to care.

We worked a puzzle, enjoyed some pizza, popcorn and a Starbucks coffee.
I always take some kind of needlework along when we travel.  As I mentioned in an earlier post I am trying to finish up some of the incomplete projects I have around so this is what I took along to try to make some progress on.

This is a Crabapple Hill design called Nesting Time.

You use about a dozen different colors of thread in this project to make it look like you are using variegated thread.  I am really enjoying working on it and I hope to share my completed project soon.

The morning we packed up to return home there was a wee bit of fog, it helped us prepare for what we would see when we returned home.
"The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace."
Psalm 29:11


  1. You are blessed And I know you will treasure that picture for years to come.

  2. It looks like you had a perfect little getaway!

  3. Looks like you had a wonderful time, it's always nice to get away with your loved ones!

  4. You are beautiful! It's your happy face that says it all. I love this area of Washington and these are just the kind of breaks my husband and I like to take. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

  5. What a fun time...and I love the photo of the two of you. Happiness shines out from both of you!!
