My Mother’s Day

When I got up this morning, Kevin had the table set and was ready to cook me a nice breakfast  Good job.. When I put the blinds up, woohoo, I actually saw the sun!  I did my computer stuff and then headed up to take a shower and get dressed. By the time I had finished, it was pouring out again, ugh!  We waited for it to slow down and headed out to Newport. Shortly after leaving, the sun was out again.. We stopped at the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. There are two in town and this is the first and oldest.

MMMM….We each got chowder and split fried halibut & chips and a crab sandwich… We will go back another day to buy some crabs and steamers.

I really enjoyed my Mother’s Day.  Talked to both my kids and several of my grandkids,  took in some beautiful sites, chowed down on fabulous food and the sun was out! !
