Much needed mini vacation.

Steve and I went to Lincoln City on Thursday for his pool tournament at Chinook Winds.  It was such a beautiful day.  We even went on a walk on the beach.  Look how beautiful it was.

 We went to the city center D river, I think. 
Lots of rocks on the beach here.

Steve found an agate.

Someone had fun building a fort.

 Steve found some walking sticks.
 He wears flip flops on the beach and had to wash his feet off.  He said it was cold water. lol
 Friday his tournament started at 9am and they played till 12:30 am.  They returned again Saturday at 1pm to play their last match.  There were 1447 team members there this year. 
 A record number of players for this tournament.
 We had a 3 hour break and look who found us right after we had dinner at the 
All you can eat Seafood Buffet.  
For those who don't know who this is, it Steve's sister from Juneau, Alaska. lol
 Barbara and her friends Janet and Nancy were in Lincoln City for a Glass Fusion class and came to hear a band at the Casino. The band wasn't there after all, but she got to visit with us. lol
 Steve's idea of Salad with dinner. lol  
 This was Sunday.  It was another beautiful day and we went on another walk on the beach. This time we went down to Mo's and walked along that part of the beach.  There was a lot of debris all over from the storms and some activity in the water and along the edge too.

 Steve found another fort someone made.
 This seagull was trying to eat a lamprey, but couldn't quite get all of it down.   
 There were 3 harbor seals hanging out close to the shore.  We think they were feasting on Lampreys too.  It was fun to watch them.

 And another fort.  Steve did find a few nice sticks to make some walking sticks.

It was a short vacation, but a much needed one.  I really enjoyed the walks in the beautiful sunshine.  I am ready to have Spring and Summer visit us for sure now.

I took 5 lap quilts to tie while we were in our room and I was able to finish them Saturday night.
 These are blocks that our eldest VFW Auxiliary member made and asked me to put together.
She is on hospice and not expected to be with us much longer. I put them together like a sample quilt.
This one I made a few blocks to complete the quilt with all the same block pattern.  I love it.

There were so many different sizes, it was difficult to put them all together.

I will be taking them to the Portland VA Hospital on Wednesday.  We were told last week the hospital is out of lap quilts to hand out.  If you would like to help us make some more, just let me know and I'll give you the details.  503-708-6889 or jwilson@bctonline.com

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Happy Scappin',
