We lucked out with the weather last week at the Oregon coast. We stopped at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, which was so picturesque and interesting. They have an interpretive center and a guided lighthouse tour which was excellent. On Agate beach nearby, the dunes were forming which is always fun. The pug was very excited by the dunes. I got a bee in a bonnet about making crafts from collected driftwood. The girls liked this project in theory, but in reality, they were busy running around and digging in the sand. Liddy made this frame with simple thread wrapping. I used string and a small hand drill for mine.
- Yum alert. The carrot salad with chickpeas over at smitten kitchen. This is so very very good. I didn't deviate at all—except I like parsley very finely chopped, so I put it in the food processor when I made the dressing.
- I'm really digging the videos and art topics over at the Art Assignment. I was directed to this in my comments a bit back. So excellent and thank you!
