May 4 – 6, 2018


This was a non-workday for me, so we took the opportunity to visit Eric’s parents for a 3-day weekend. On the way to the beach, we stopped in North Bend, WA to fuel up. At a Starbuck’s, Todd was chillin’…

Next, we stopped at Vic’s Pizzeria (Olympia, WA) for a scrumptious vegan pizza and vegan calzone. This time we tried the Capitol Blvd location, located in a lovely forested neighborhood. We had plenty of leftovers to enjoy for days…

We arrived in Ocean Shores, got settled in, then splashed in the waves…

Headed out

Waiting for a good one


Back for more!

We had a lot of stuff to dodge on the beach (which had a certain beauty)…

Careful steps

Nature’s beauty

Another good one

In the morning, we went to Damon Point beach. Todd agreed to wear sunglasses…what a breakthrough! [Actually we gave him no choice, but he didn’t fight it]. After beach time, we went shopping in town. Todd picked out a whoopee cushion.

In the afternoon, we rode our scooters. After that, we splashed in the ocean.

When we came inside, Todd fell asleep on the couch. I tried to wake him up in the evening, but he was OUT. Eric said, “We might have miscalculated not giving him a nap” 😀 He was carried to bed and never woke up until the next morning.

We were chased by the waves one last time before our journey home.

Darren and Sandie stopped by, and some great photos were taken. Todd napped in the car during the drive.
