A few weeks ago Neil suggested that we head to the shore for Mother’s Day weekend since we had a gift certificate for a coastal hotel to use. Last minute we decided to extend the weekend to include an extra night away for our anniversary which is at the end of the month. We started our weekend away at Seaside and while it was a little chilly and rainy Edith and Neil had a great time playing in the sand and on the swings.
Saturday the weather improved and we spent the day in Astoria before heading to our hotel in Cannon Beach. We lucked out and were able to an ocean front room thanks to our gift certificate. The first thing we did when we arrived (of course) was head straight to the beach to play a little ball. Once we finally headed to our room Neil and Edith changed into their bathing suits and headed back to the beach while I enjoyed 45-60 minutes of quiet time soaking in the giant tub with a view of the ocean.
Although it wasn’t the warmest weekend (40-60F) it was a beautiful weekend away and just what our little family needed. We are hoping to visit the coast once or twice more this summer and again as a family of four this Fall.
