I will post my photo tommorow. We are off to the beach this morning. I thought about taking a photo and posting before we go, but common people...we lots of pictures of our house and beach pictures are so much nicer.
Portland has been plauged by high East Winds for the last couple of days so we will actually have warmer, most likely less windy weather at the coast than we have here. That is quite a change. The coast does not get very warm in the summer or very cold in the winter, so there is not much difference between going in July or January.
The other odd thing is that the rest of the Willamette Valley is in fog and the coast is not.
There is a bumper crop of razor clams so we are planning to get down there just before low tide and we are armed with our shell-fish licenses are ready to dig. Plan 1 for dinner is clam strips, plan be or a side dish Mac n cheese.
