Heceta Beach

Today’s stroll on the coast.




Florence, Oregon

Took a trip to the coast with my Aunt Gayle this weekend.  Fantastic weather as we walked Bay Street.  And dinner at Las Cantinas, beautiful peach and raspberry virgin margaritas!  

Evening Stroll

We took an evening stroll yesterday on the longest day of the year.  Love this old house (now dentist office) amongst the trees.  And the smile of Zen frolicking through the park and trees. 

Ladybugs & Roses

Sunday I spent some time weeding the rose garden, I tried to snap two lady bugs (I actually saw four) but this one was the only that stayed long enough for the photo shoot.  And the rose of the day.

For the Love of Dogs

One of the best things about having extra time on my hands, is the joy of playing and watching these guys.  Zen, calmly watching his surroundings (he loves to watch the birds, squirrels, and people).

Zen: Great Dane/Pitbull Mix

Ming, ALWAYS ready to play (note the rawhide to your bottom right corner, he’s always got a little nub to entice his brothers).  Ming: Collie/Black Lab MixAnd Loki.  This picture (while could have been better) illustrates the pure joy & love they bring to my life.

Loki: Pitbull/Boston Terrier/Chihuahua Mix

Creekside Trailhead

One of my good friends took us on an adventure today to Creekside Trailhead.  It was my first time there.  The weather was gorgeous, air fragrant, the sounds of waters soothing, and the time together precious.  All in all a thoughtful & heart filling time.  Thank you Stacy, from both Loki & I! 

Lunch With Zoey

Today I finally got to go to lunch with Zoey.  She was awarded a Citizenship Award this morning!  Tomorrow is her last day as a 4th grader.
