Vacation 2000 Photos

In August of 2000 Cathy's folks came over from Scotland for a visit. We spent the first few days around Portland and then headed off to the Pacific coast to a house we'd rented for a week. Here are a few pictures of the house and beach, there should be more to follow.

The beach house The house at the beach. 4 bedrooms, 3 baths on three levels, and a superb living room/kitchen on open plan. The top floor had one of the bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a small dining/lounge area overlooking the main living area. Looking down from the balcony
View from the front balcony Right in the bay in front of the beach was Haystack Rock, and here's a few views of it. The left hand one is taken from the balcony, the others from the beach. Like most coastal areas it got pretty breezy in the afternoons, so we spent time on the beach in the morning. The house also had a back balcony, which was real nice first thing in the morning, but looked inland, onto the new house construction. Going...
going... Another beautiful sunset over the Pacific coast. The water was pretty chilly (as you might expect), but it was all good fun. gone!


The house we rented was superb, right on the beach, and reasonably placed for heading south to Lincoln City (20 mins.) and Newport (1 hour), or north to Tillamook (25 mins). It cost $1000 for the week, and we'd rent it again. We're thinking of inviting some friends and doing it again next year.
