Bahama Mama!

Ahhh, sun, sand, rum…what more could you ask for?!  Brodie and I recently took a week-long trip to the Bahamas for a well deserved vacation. The first thing we did was rent a moped for the week to explore Great Exuma. We ate conch salad, drank rum and coconut water (which we drained from coconuts we gathered from our yard), we snorkeled, sun bathed, watched the sunset and the sunrise, walked along the beach under a dome of bright stars, and all-in-all had a fabulous time!  We were both sad to leave, but have great memories now…and a tan to beat the winter white!

Oregon Coast

Last Christmas my family went to the Oregon coast and spent a lovely time in a house hanging by the fire reading and cooking and watching movies.  Molly's boyfriend, Dan joined us on Christmas Day and the next day on our way home we finally went on a little hike to a lookout and took in the cold beach.  I accidentally dropped my camera in the water while attempting to jump to & from slippery rocks. That's the beauty of a plastic camera - resilient to the end!
