Today we went to Pig n' Pancake! Mmm! For breakfast, first time this trip!
Mommy held back three presents from his party (as if he missed any) to give him at the beach. I did not want Legos at the beach. Too many little pieces for the beach, and I do not want to spend precious beach time building legos. I wonder what this present could be that thrills Lon so much but Mark, not so much? It is an extreme hand held bubble machine!
The wait staff at Pig n' Pancake sang happy birthday to Lon! Brought him a balloon with a Pig n' Pancake ornament attached to the bottom. Lon will keep the ornament in his room for a while and then it will become part of his Christmas stuff. A very cute memento
Blowing bubbles at Mommy on the trail to Agate beach. I had heard good things about this beach. well, it was not the beach for us.
Yaquina Head Light from the other side on Moolak beach. This beach was way more fun. I found the fossil impression of a scallop type shell in a rock. That is one cool looking rock! No photo of that yet. For a while, we thought Moolak might be the native word for stinky beach. There was something we could not see rotting near us. It was not as pleasant a smell as we would have liked.
The stream was boy heaven. Lon loves playing in the water. I asked Mark to get me a walking stick, he searched all the driftwood and got me a can shaped piece that works wonders. I am going to keep it and sand it smooth when I get home. Lon had the idea to see if I can inlay an agate in the handle. I might try that.
After some play time and rock hunting, we went into Depoe Bay for lunch. We found a parking space right in front of the Sea Hag. Thinking this was a fortuitous, we ate there. Lon got a coloring page. That was fun for him while waiting for his lunch
After eating his entire grilled cheese sandwich, he got a piece of chocolate cake. They did not sing to him here. Even though we mentioned it was his birthday.
This little boy is just so darn cute! Lon did not put the sand on his head. The little boy's sister did that. They were waiting for their Dad to come in from Portland. Little Michael wasted no time getting messy and wet in the stream. He was SO happy!
Road's End Beach. The sun had come out and it was wonderful! It got up to 65! I know that doesn't sound like much to those of you having a real summer, but to me, it was warm and wonderful. Best of all, it was dry!
After a clean up in the jacuzzi, we went to dinner at Mo's. They sang to Lon and brought him a wonderful ice cream sundae with a candle and a frisbee! It was fun! Do not know why Mark has that sour expression, we were having fun!
After dinner at Mo's, we went back to Surftides. It was still light so we went on another agate hunt. This is the agate I found! It is so much fun searching for the pretty rocks. Lon is getting into it too. I had a pretty little cocker spaniel come nose up to me as I was picking up a stone. Her owner said she is in training to be an agate hunter too.
Night night my little six year old Lion. I hope you sleep well and may all your dreams come true. Happy Birthday
