We had such a wonderful time!!!!
We decided to go to Astoria/Warrenton OR.  It was a rather scary drive down there...the rain was pouring and Richie could hardly see the lines on the road. 

The hotel room was HUGE!!!  We were very impressed!  The breakfast was very good too!

On Saturday night we brought home some food to cook for dinner.  We tried a 'macaroni' was interesting!  And good!  Following the pizza was ice-cream sandwiches, sparkling cider and chocolate milk!  We're very health-conscious. (Sometimes ;-)

Our idea of a fun vacation might be different than some.  We were ecstatic when we found out that Costco, Cash N Carry, and Goodwill were close by!   We spent much of the day Saturday shopping :-)
We saw a big heard of elk while we were driving around the Warrenton area.

We also visited the Maritime Museum. 

While at the museum, we learned to make rope!  It was such an interesting process.  And we even got to keep the rope we made.  It's a nice little souvenir!

There were some really neat things to be seen at the museum.

The trip home on Sunday morning was very pleasant.  We went through many cute little historic towns and saw some beautiful houses and farmlands.  We also visited the last public covered bridge in WA.

We were able to get a picture by setting the camera on top of our car.  It had to be sandwiched between a newspaper because of the rain.  Consequently, our picture turned out a little bit washed-out.  It's still a nice photo though!

We had a great time, but it was nice to return home too!

My sheep were happy to see me.

So was Lucy!

That's all for now folks!
