At the Oregon coast you never know what weather may beseech you. Unfortunately we were heavy laden in clouds. The fine mist seemingly drenched us as though we were in a massive downpour. However, it could not bring the gathering down. We had such a good time there with family. Running through the waves, exploring hidden treasures embedded in rocks, finding a baby seal waiting for its "Mama," digging holes, sand in between our toes and other parts (how does that happen?), fireworks, a huge bonfire, awesome display of purchased fireworks, jumping for cover with an unexpected firework malfunction, giggles from the children, an abundance of never ending food, and just living in the moment of JOY!
