Warning! Lots of pictures :)
Saturday morning I drove back down to Dry Lagoon hoping to catch low tide. No such luck. You can see here where the water is, is usually where I would be looking for agates! Oh well.
Before I left the hotel I had texted my friend Michelle to see what time/where she and her family would like to meet up. I had a personal item that had been Scott's that I wanted to give to Dave (her husband) because they were good friends. The closer I got to the beach the spottier cell coverage became. So, I just figured we'd catch up later in the day if I went into town for food or something. So, I'm wandering around the beach, hoping to find a wayward agate and who comes walking up with a little girl on his shoulders? Dave!!! Behind him were a few boys and Michelle. You see, they have 7 kids! 3 of the older kids weren't there so there were some friend substitutes :) The older kids are too cool to hang out with their parents and siblings on a Saturday afternoon *grin*.
And off we went for an adventure. I'm glad I drove with them because in a few parts there were like streams across the road to drive through and I'm not sure my little Honda would do so well. Maybe. But I'm glad I didn't have to find out that it wouldn't.
So! Fern Canyon. It's beautiful! You walk through a creek bed in a crevasse that the walls are just covered in ferns! And greenery and fallen trees and all kinds of stuff. It was great. It was a hike, climbing over said fallen trees and rocks and whatnot. At one point Dave called me a mountain goat, in the nicest way possible because at that moment I was hopping up the side of the hill!
So, the whole time we were joking about a t-rex coming around the corner at any second. The older kids were like "whatever" but the youngest sort of believed it. But, really, in this picture doesn't it look like Jurassic Park a little?
After that, it was back to the beach! There was a spot that I actually found a few agates. Then, I got soaked! So decided my chair and drying off would be perfect. So I knitted for awhile.
Here's the yarn I picked up at the yarn shop. I could NOT resist that neon sock yarn!!!!! eeeeee!!!!! And the other two will be making a fox :)
Sunday I got up early and hit the road. I missed my boys. I briefly debated staying the day at the beach in Crescent but my boys won out! I got back just in time to pick them up for the vet early pick up (saved $32) and my boys were so happy to see me!!!! Poor Rocky has arthritis in his right shoulder and I could tell that it was bothering him. Major couch time for him. When I got home, there was this beautiful pot of flowers and the sweetest card! So thoughtful and cheery.
Today I'm doing laundry and chilling with my pooper-doos. I am going to go sit out in the sun and start knitting that fox.
