Life's a Beach

Every summer for the past several years now, we join four other friends for a week-long holiday.
This year we decided to travel down the coast to Oceanside, Oregon.
 We discovered unspoiled beaches and breathtaking scenery.

 The beach is known as the Three Arches--these three huge rocks in the ocean have openings in the bottom which give them an arch shape.
 The rock formations are incredible.
 There was even a little cave to explore.

When the tide went out, the rocks were covered with shellfish and starfish.

 This waterfall reminded me of Jurassic Park.
 After a week of beachcombing, it was time to head home...
but not without first stopping at the Fabric Depot in Portland, Oregon,
home to 1 1/2 ACRES of fabric!
A vacation from heaven!
