Dad’s Visit :: The Coast

Sad this is our last beach post … but I’m sure three in a row is more than enough for now. In case you missed it, there was our trip to the beach a couple of weeks ago & the visit with my dad and Haley that we captured with our phones.

This day was particularly amazing … We all got a little sun, which is almost unheard of on the Oregon coast. Haley fell into the ocean, which meant we all got to loan her our giant clothes. The dogs enjoyed digging & playing in the sand, and we bought the most expensive bagel sandwiches from a little shop before heading home. Basically, it was a great day! :)

Haley’s first time seeing the ocean on the west coast … 



Dad giving his new camera a workout!! 



It literally took Jimmy 5 seconds to teach the dogs to dig in the sand … then they did it for like 15 minutes. Molly loved sticking her head into the sand-hole she dug. It was awesome.

Some other visitors offered to take a group photo … Nice to have one of all 4 (6) of us!

Human sundial. 

Reminding us all that she is indeed 13! :)

Don’t let this picture fool you. I totally Photoshopped her leash out of the photo … She would be attacking a seagull or ruining someone’s day without a leash. Crazy Ruca … but she sure is cute. 

Haley, taking it in. 

Molls got to be off-leash for a bit. After several trips to the coast, we still aren’t sure if she loves or hates the ocean. She is brave though! 


This is about 5 seconds before Haley fell all the way in … twice. 

It really was a magical day! This was the last post from my dad’s trip here. We have 1 or 2 more with Haley still to come. I LOVED having my dad here to see what we love so much about this place!
