partly cloudy and not windy. no crowds and plenty of parking. we planned to do the Oregonian thing and beach hop until we found one with sun but after sitting here and eating lunch we noticed that it was 4pm and time to head home. 

thanks, jacie, for suggesting a perfect day off.

*the attempted "serious" picuture is a reference to the earlier part of the day spent in antique shops- an homage to elegant and oh so serious ladies long ago.
