About Me

I am a 45 year husband and dad, currently adjusting to life back in the United States after living in Italy for a little over two years. I love spending time with my family, cycling, model railroading, mosaics and watching TV and movies.

Camping at the Coast

We drove out to South Beach State Park on Friday morning. It's amazing how many people camp on Thanksgiving weekend. We found a nice campsite and setup our trailer. It felt good to be using it again. Its been awhile....I think it was June since we last used it. We've been busy with travelling, work and life in general.
After setting up we took a walk out to the beach. It was cloudy but not too bad. I thought it would be cold, but it was actually pretty nice out. After walking for an hour or so we hopped in the truck and headed into Newport. Our destination, the Newport Cinema. Brandon and I went to see Bolt while Katrina saw Twighlight. We all had a good time.
Brandon had a rough night. He threw up all over his sleeping bag. What a mess. So, our first stop on Saturday morning was the laundrymat. I kept busy with my book while Brandon and Katrina played Pokemon. Brandon was back to his normal hungry self. For lunch we stopped at the Rogue Brewery. Katrina really loves the beer cheese soup.
The afternoon was spent at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. We haven't been there in quite a long time.

Their feature exhibit was Oddwater. We think its a perfect exhibit for Brandon!
We woke on Sunday to sunny skies and a beautiful day. After packing and winterizing the trailer, we took a nice walk on the beach. Wow! This day was as good as or better than some of the summer days at the coast. Tasha had a good time rolling in the sand. I had a good time watching the waves. Katrina had a good time taking a lot of pictures. Brandon had a great time playing near and in the water.
It was great having some family time in our trailer. I will miss it while we are in Italy, but it is nice to know it will be waiting for us on our return.
