My photos certainly don't match those of our friends across the pond, however, here is what Californians call the Beach and Oregonians call The Coast.
This is less than an hour from my house, but it's mostly a 2 lane mountain road that most Oregonians can't seem to drive well.
It was gonna be over 100 degrees in the Willamette Valley, so my friend and I headed for the Coast with every other person from Corvallis...
we had a ball...
This is Nye beach at Newport Oregon...crowded but the fog bank is staying out...

I've received both vaccine shots, and did not have any reaction...
The only thing I've noticed is a pretty sore muscle at the shot site. I got the shot Wednesday and it's still pretty sore buttt... I don't have to get another one and I have some additional protection from that crazy virus. It wasn't fun having COVID-19. Also with all the news coverage being so negative about someone like me surviving it, I had to block out mentally everything and just concentrate on getting better. Maybe if I do get this new variation it won't be as bad.

Actually that picture is really interesting and beautiful. You can even see the waves in the sand left behind by nature.🙂

That's right - Sam was an engineer on board the cruise ship and Amy was a dancer when they met. He's still an engineer but on a much less glamourous ship now and has to spend longer away from home. We are all delighted for them.
I have to tell you 🤗 I saw my first hummingbird at my new feeder today. I was so afraid I was too late putting one out. And it's really hidden by the crabapple limbs hanging to the ground with apples. But one found it so far.🤗 Maybe the parental leave they're talking about here in the US will be a good thing for them. They are talking about making it a law. But also companies are seeing that it's a good thing for employees. That's just a thought.

It's pretty funny but I signed up for National Geographic's email and the very first email I opened was today and it was named "Building Trust With Meerkats". 😁We live in a small world 😂

Good morning all,
It's a grey day here and less windy, but we've got off very lightly compared to areas of the South of England who've been battered by Storm Evert. I didn't even know a storm was forecast for any part of the UK and it seems it caught a few people out.
@JoesMum - hope you've not been too badly affected, Linda.
Not too badly. Ot was pretty wet yesterday and very windy, but it didn’t cause us any problems.

I am just back from Lomdon where we have been to see a stage production of Singin’ In the Rain at the Sadler’s Wells theatre (hoe of the Royal Ballet)

We got tickets for our daughter’s birthday present in 2019; she has been obsessed with the dancer Adam Cooper since she was very young and he played the lead. Covid delayed the production, but it was worth the wait. Fabulous show 😊

Good morning/afternoon. Still showery and cool here - suits me fine!
Lola had a lazy day yesterday and didn't surface until late afternoon; he wasn't out for long so he had room service. He's out and about today but not been further than the door - he doesn't like the look of the weather.
I'm off for a walk to my local dandelion spot to stock up so I'll see you later.
Have a lovely Sunday!!
