A road trip to the Oregon Coast was the carrot I had been dangling to get me through the busy Holiday season. I was so excited, plus it would give me and my hubby much needed time together.
I choose the Oregon Coast because I had never been and tales of others promised great treasure hunting. I also love the ocean.
Well, our trip started on the same day of the worst reported storm in Oregon in over a century. Really? With the road conditions and closures, it just wasn’t gonna happen. Plan B. This was a good lesson in “go with the flow”.
Sugar was so happy to be with us.
Mount Shasta was beautiful.
Next stop we took a lateral drive to Burney to visit my picker friend, Steve Luck. This was a lot of fun. He has more treasures than I do, which is rather amazing.
These are the treasures he will make amazing things out of, and this is just the driveway.
I learned how to put on chains.
After all that shopping it was time for a good meal. We had a great burger at Maxwell’s.
We ended our trip in RedBluff. My parents have owned property there for 20 years and I have never been there when it snowed, so this was a treat. It was beautiful.
So the Oregon Coast is a trip for a warmer time of year. Everything worked out the way it was suppose to. We reconnected with old friends and spent much needed time together. It was a nice way to enter this new year. Refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to rock 2017.
