OREGON COAST & LIFE LATELY

Hello everyone. Sorry for being MIA past couple weeks. Life changed a bit this summer, and blogging had to take a back seat, while i settled into a routine. I am taking a summer certificate course on Business at Univ. of Washington's business school. Since its a short summer course, classes have been a bit intense with back to back deadlines on assignments and projects. But i am thoroughly enjoying the course, classes, and learning a lot. Going to school here itself is an exciting new experience for me. Good teachers and friendly classmates are just an added bonus.

Okay, thats the update. Now lets get into details about today's post. For the july 4th weekend, when its was around 90 degrees here, Tee & I decided to go to the Oregon coast for the weekend, as it was much cooler there. We stayed at an airBnB(big fans of airBnB here) near a little town called Elkton. On the first day, we did dune buggy rides. This was our first time driving the buggy ourselves. Its such an adrenalin rush. So much fun and adventurous. Also tried sand-boarding for the first time.

Next day, we went to a local, family based winery in Elkton, called the Bradley's Vineyards. Its got a cute little tasting room, and beautiful vineyard. We loved the tastings, and came home with one of their whites.

While we had a lot of fun, the main reason this would be a memorable trip for us is because of our host at our airBnB house. Its a not a human, but a dog called Buddy. His tactics to come into the house(he is an outside dog) reminded me of Juno, my pet dog of 12 years who passed away last year. Buddy is old, but the sweetest and the cutest. He gave us great company, and Tee just fell in love with him. We still talk about him, and plan to visit him again in a few months.

  2. My family and I love the Oregon coast. We are planning a trip to Cannon beach next month and he plan on exploring Hug point. Apparently it has a waterfall on the beach and a cave you can explore. It will be fun. Confessions of an Ex-Ballerina
