Nehalem Bay 2007
This past weekend was the annual family camping event for our church.
It took place out at Nehalem Bay near Manzanita, Oregon.
We had a great time hanging out with the Rouses, Manglesdorfs and the rest of the church families for Thursday night through Sunday morning.
We were in campsite F34 which was a good location right beside a camp host on a quiet corner not too far away from the beach, restrooms nor the kid's playground.
Most of the time was spent hanging out with friends, eating their food :-) and hitting the beach.
Another sand creation was born with the emergence of the giant lobster or crayfish (depending on who you ask).
I did limited running as I have started tapering for Waldo but we did a cool family run to Manzanita on the back road. Trisha discovered that there was a Manzanita Beach 5k walk, 5k & 10k run Saturday morning but we were too late to sign up. We will have to check it out for next year.
We then hit the local ice cream shop for some cones and sundaes.
The return trip was via the beach since it was low tide. With the all the beauty and the tailwind it is worth the little rust on the bikes :-)
Friday and Saturday were sunny but relatively cool with the breeze off the ocean. Sunday brought in some rain but it mostly held off while we packed up and headed for home.
