The first destination on our trip was Lincoln City. Fun fact: Lincoln City, Oregon is really far away from Lehi, Utah. It took us about 14 hours of driving to get there. I actually really enjoy road trips. I love the time alone with Robyn. I love just putting it on cruise control and watching the world go by.
And, of course I love sing-along time.
Robyn prepared a packet of fun for the road. She had such things as Mad Libs, the license plate game, a list of get to know you questions and other madness. I should note, we rocked the license plate game. We saw the license plates of 45 states (including both Alaska and Hawaii), but we also did some extra credit and got 4 Canadian provinces. With our extra credit included we have 49/50 which is 98%, a solid A.
|I told Robyn we should drive to the east coast to pick up the last few we needed.|
I mentioned above that I really do enjoy road trips. However, the 14 hours to get out there was just a little much. (We did it over 2 days. We drove to Twin Falls, Idaho after work on Friday, but that was still 10 hours on Saturday.) When we pulled in to Lincoln City, I told Robyn that I was done driving for life. I made her drive the 1 mile from our condo to go out to eat. Luckily, I was over my hatred of driving by the next day so I was able to drive again.
Once the road trip part was over, it was time for the fun to begin. Lincoln City is such a chill place. Our condo was right on the beach, so we loved to just sit and look at the crashing waves. We opened the windows so the breeze could come in, and it was amazing.
|This was one of our favorite things. It's like a picnic on the beach without the sand.|
|I learned this is called a moon jellyfish.|
|A starfish chillaxing|
|An open shell where a mussel once lived.|
|Just hanging out with a whole bunch of mussels.|
Lincoln City was even amazing at night. As the sun started to get low in the sky, campfires started popping up on the beach near our condo. Naturally, we had to participate at least once. We just gathered drift wood on the beach, and we didn't have a ton of it so our fire didn't last long, but I feel we got enough of the experience.
|I make this cute little baby fire look good.|
|Robyn makes it look even better.|
