Ah, weekend on the coast

This past weekend, Donnie and I spent Friday and Saturday night at the Starfish Manor Hotel in Lincoln City. It was a beautiful room (the Nautica suite) with a jacuzzi tub in a corner of windows so that we could be inside (it was chilly outside!) and watch the ocean (and the Olympics). Here are a few pictures of our room:

On Saturday, we tried to go to lunch at Mo’s even though we knew it would probably be so very busy. And it was. So we walked down a block or two to Tiki’s at 51st, which served a very tasty Gardenburger for much cheaper than Mo’s.

Then we enjoyed a walk on the beach just outside our room (4 floors down). Donnie and I paused too long in the wet sand to take a picture of a kite flyer behind us, and so Donnie’s shoes were sadly soaked by the rising tide. But other than that, it was fun, and I got to take my brand-new red Crocs on their debut walk.

And then, because the sun was out Saturday, we got to enjoy a lovely sunset:

All in all, it was a great weekend! We need to start doing this more often 🙂



  1. Looks like you had a fun trip together! Do you have the romance package? How crazy that they put rose petals on your bed. And the crocs are so fun! I love red! Such a happy color!

  2. I meant to say “did you have the romance package?” Not “do you?” We really don’t want to know if you “do have the romance package”. I was referring to the rose petals on the bed. Thought I should clarify so that you don’t have to blog a “Ah, romance package” blog. That might scare us, or Seth in particular. 🙂

  3. I’m not commenting on previous comments.

    Who took the sunset picture? Gorgeous!!

    And I’m extremely jealous of getting to wear long sleeves in August!!! Can I move there?
