I just got back from an awesome Thanksgiving vacation on the Oregon Coast. Justin's Dad rented a house on the beach in Manzanita, Oregon to surprise their mom for her birthday and the Thanksgiving holiday. The whole family was there including Emily (my cousin) and Justin's siblings Arthur & Karen, and their parents, John & Nancy. Emily is married to Arthur (it's not as weird as it sounds). I HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME. This post will be picture heavy, because I got a lot of good ones, and we did a lot of things.
The next day was pretty rainy and gray, so we went to the Tillamook Cheese Factory in Tillamook, Oregon. It was REALLY COOL. We took the self guided tour and had lunch, and, of course, bought a fair amount of cheese.
The next day was my favorite day, and it was pretty perfect. In the morning, Emily and I went down to the beach and practiced yoga. I really liked doing yoga with Emily. We took pictures of each other being awesome, so now we have plently of Facebook fodder.
The aquarium was really cool. It was raining and cold, so there were hardly any people there. We got wet, but we got prime veiwing for the seals and sea lion feeding. They also have a sea otter exhibit and the sea otters are SO CUTE. There was one right next to the glass who was bathing himself and man, SO CUTE. I bought a t-shirt with a sea otter on it.
We spent our final day in Cannon Beach seeing the Haystack (that huge rock behind us) and shopping and the souvenir shops. We did find a few yarn shops, and I did buy some stuff! I also found a few Christmas gifts, which was great too.
I did get some knitting done, and I will post about that in the next few days. I had so much fun on this trip. Oregon is such an awesome place and I can't wait to go back! You can see the rest of my pictures here!
