serious coffee art at our local cafe
I learned about the Indiegogo campaign for Shania Watts, an awesomely talented young musician I saw perform on the viola last week. She was selected to compete in the 2015 Sphinx competition in Detroit and now needs help to cover the cost of travel and related expenses. I donated – please consider joining me!
For my birthday weekend, my wonderful husband took me away to Agate Beach, north of Newport, for a much needed weekend away. We arrived late but this was the view at sunset from the deck of our room 🙂
Our first morning out on the beach with lots of fog and super mild temperatures…we were in heaven!
We played around the whole Newport area of the coast, loving this view at Devil’s Punchbowl.
…then checked out the lighthouse (being painted so not photographed) and the awesome waves hitting the rocks at Yaquina Head

This is what 41 looks like to me!!!
Our happy girl 🙂

Sunday morning at Fogarty Creek was awesome…found a jar’s worth of pretty rocks, including a few agates and Oregon jade (green jasper)!
Along the path to Ona Beach
After a delicious dinner of fresh local dungeness crab and sharing a bottle of wine, we woke up the next morning and finished the weekend off in Neskowin before heading up Highway 6 back into the city.
