Oh, the Oregon Coast

Saturday, Andrew and I headed to the beach to escape the extremely hot weather in P-town. Wow, was it quite the opposite at Seaside. As you can see from the pictures below, it was quite foggy and misty. It was a nice break from the heat and we had a blast.

I am not a big fan of being in Oregon water. Hello, IT'S FREAKIN FREEZING!!! But to prove a point, here I stand.

One of the best parts of the day (I have to selfishly admit) was finding something with my name on it. If you haven't realized this, Tabitha is not the most common of names, which makes it very hard to find things that say Tabitha (like those oh so exciting state keychains and pencils and whathaveyou). Andrew saw these nameplate things in a store and said he would look for my name and I was like "go ahead, you won't find it" 'cause I never do! And what in the world did he come across? MY NAME!!! I think I squealled in the store and then kept looking at it the rest of the day in disbelieve. So, there you have it. This is only the second thing in my life that has had my name on it (that wasn't specifically requested). SO FUN!!! I just had to share.

Here Andrew is trying Sea Foam for the first time. I think he liked it...
To cap off our afternoon at the beach (and for those that may be heading to Seaside sometime soon) we ate at a great little restaurant called McKeown's that was recommened to us by a local so of course we had to check it out. The place was cute, the food was quite tasty and the people were extremely friendly.

I want to go to the beach!! I guess I will just have to live vicariously through you. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun and congrats on finding the name plate. You're so easily amused! haha.

Hey Tabitha! Sounds like you had a good time at the coast and AWAY from the heat we were having in P-town. That is so cool about finding something with your name on it.
Hope you have a good rest of the week and weekend.
