This last weekend was really fun and relaxing. We went to dinner at friend's houses on Friday and SAturday, T went on a 50 mile bike ride, I went to a baby shower for a friend, but by far our most fun day was Sunday, when we went up to Hurricane Ridge to go snowshoeing. WE decided to go on the Mt. Angeles trail which was really pretty and full of great ups and downs. T got to get in some downhill skiing, and we got to go sledding. I am getting better at recognizing things like places ready for avalanches and things like that. It was a beautiful weekend, so sunny and warm. We laughed alot and were kind of tired today, but still worth it. We really did enjoy ourselves so much.

river kayaking? No, sledding, with no sled


Two weekends ago, we went away for the weekend to a bed and breakfast on the oregon coast. It was so relaxing and fun. The original plan was to bike between the two historic forts on Saturday, but it was so rainy and cold, we decided to drive between them. We are looking forward to going back and biking the dikes and other parts of the roads. We had a nice day. We stayed at the Rosebriar inn and it was a real treat! The food was excellent and the rooms were pleasant and tasteful. As can be seen from the pictures below, the neighboring house is full of potential and would be the perfect setting for a scary haunted house movie. Apparently, some of the people who had stayed in our room before us ended up having bad dreams where the house next door figured in. I just saw all its potential and was kind of sad to see the owners let the house go into neglect like that. WE also drove by the house on goonies and the school where they filmed kindergarten cop. It was a nice weekend.

On Sunday, it was actually kind of clear so we went and biked along the coast on a 15 mile ride. It was nice to get out and bike around. The recreation trail was great! Then, we drove home up the 101 along the west side of the olympics. It was really pretty, and we found that both Aberdeen and Forks were much bigger than we were expecting.It was a really nice weekend.
