Ocean City, Oregon High 62 Low 53
We made it as far West and North as we plan on going this trip. We will be here for a few days to relax (as if we needed that) and see what is here. It rained some last evening.
We are at the Ocean Breeze RV Resort. It is a KM Park and seems to be a very nice Park. The sites are nice and wide and easy to get into.
Yesterday afternoon we drove into Ocean Beach to go to the grocery store and to see the local Quilt shop. And yes, we did buy material this time. Cindy spotted a panel she wanted and so she got it and the material and pattern to finish a throw.
While we were there we could see something going on at the Convention Center, so we went to check it out. It turned out to be what they called a Sand and Sawdust Festival. There were some sand carvings set up in the parking lot. And there were a lot of chainsaw wood carvers. They did very nice work! Cindy got lots of pictures of them working and their finished products.
|These kids were having fun playing in the sand.|
|Most had a lot of intricate carving.|
There were also a lot of other vendors and had displays inside the Convention Center. The first thing we spotted as we went in was a large quilt hanging on the wall. She also got some ideas of how to turn Sand Dollars into jewelry.
We found another row of wood carving when we went back outside.
There is an auction each afternoon to purchase some of the wood carvings. There were lots of them waiting to be sold.
Today we are going to the beach to let Penny run and play. We were also told that there in sand castle carving going on there. I hope so, so that Cindy gets to see them this time.
Thanks for visiting.
