May Ocean

IMG_7742

Our May adventure to Lincoln City was filled with blue skies and wonderful sunsets.  We got some “good news/bad news” from the desk when we checked in.  The good news…..no one had the room above us.  The bad news…..the whole top floor was empty because they were re-roofing while we were there.  No way to warn us.  The company was supposed to be there last week.

I was not looking forward to three days of hammering, but it all went rather smoothly.  The hammering was not as bad as all the equipment (and the sounds the shingles made when thrown from the top floor. *shudder*)  Thank goodness ocean waves can overwhelm so many other sounds.  Plus BLUE SKIES – NO RAIN

Robert spent extra time during low time to find some beautiful rocks.  He treasures them.  Collecting was just half the fun.  The second half was organizing them with a “look at this one” and “see the layers in this one.”

It was my job to pick out a new breakfast spot, since we try to do something different each visit.  I’ve always been fascinated with a swanky hotel called Inn at Spanish Head not too far from our modest digs.  I read there was a great breakfast so we were there when it opened.  The restaurant served good food, and the view was crazy beautiful.

We tried to get a selfie without backlighting ourselves too much while still showing the view.

Don’t file the next part under “too much information.”  As it is with being human, I had to visit the bathroom.  I walked in and was confronted with this scene.  I KID YOU NOT.

When a restaurant’s bathroom has a better view than your hotel room, one might imagine the cost of a room. Nevertheless, we wouldn’t switch.  We love The Sandcastle, and stay there every time we can.  Note: I made sure to catch a corner of the sink just to prove….holy cow, it’s a bathroom.

While I didn’t see “our” seal this time, I was lucky enough to see the spout and body of whale/s!  Such creatures.  I either saw one whale four times or four different whales.  Either way, it was a thrill to experience.
