Suddenly Summer

If you're in the Pacific NW, you know what I'm talkin' about! We've gone from wet, cool spring to full-on summer. There wasn't relief to be found at the coast where temps reached the 90's. We took a ride from our place on the Long Beach peninsula down the Oregon coast on Friday and had lunch at Mo's in Cannon Beach. Loads of people were on the beach cooling their feet in the surf. You won't find them in the picture above, though; this one was taken of Scott near Mo's couple of years ago when the beach was quite deserted.

We headed for the Port of Ilwaco on Saturday morning to take in the Saturday Market and the visiting tall ships. Things were starting to cool down a bit and it turned out to be a beautiful weekend!

A little tiptoe...

Took these pics last weekend at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon. I'm enjoying all the color out there that screams "Spring". And my lilacs are finally starting to bloom. We've had a run of chilly weather in the last month but the sun is finally out in full force this weekend. Devine!
