Aside from our long walks on beaches, glass blowing, visits to cheese factories and lighthouses we also enjoyed some time at the house we rented, as it was such a beautiful location in itself.
David in the Family Room
Denny giving Mojo some fuss
We had lunch out a couple of days but on at least one occasion we enjoyed BLT sandwiches on the deck. Mojo isn’t sure how you can keep a BLT sandwich without just swallowing it all in two mouthfuls.
Because the house didn’t have an enclosed garden as such, more of a cliff, Mojo had to be taken for a walk to do his ‘business’ which we did further up the neighbourhood which pretty much consisted of vacant lots waiting for buyers.
On one particular lot there was this great view of a dead tree, which we realised was deceased because of a huge landslide right beneath it. This poor ole tree just waiting to drop into the ocean.
From one of the higher lots there were good views along the coastline of Neskowin, and then as this photo shows, Bob Straub State Park, Cape Kiwanda and the not-so-famous Haystack Rock beyond.
David wanted to buy Lot #10 on this development as it had the terrific views all up the coastline.
We did venture out to a local restaurant for dinner one night but otherwise stayed in during the evenings to enjoy the views
No local restaurant could beat this setting and unlikely to beat the quality of food served by David and Denny either !
We enjoyed absolutely stunning sunsets from the deck
After the sun went down we enjoyed the firepit on the deck
There was also a lot of hot-tubing activity – it’s not often you get to chill in a tub, perched 180ft above the ocean on a cliff edge !
All-in-all a really wonderful few days away and we have discovered a new piece of the country that we love and we will no doubt be back to again in the near future.
