It's a bit dreary here at the beach, but I'm not one to turn her nose up at a weekend away from the routine at home! DH and I are here for a Specialty Auto Insurance Agents meeting/SuperBowl party. Our room here at the Shilo Inn is great with a separate sitting area complete with a cozy electric fireplace, balcony with ocean view, tiny kitchenette, and THREE televisions, lol!
It took us about six hours to drive here from Kennewick, taking the route over White Pass, the two-lane highway rather than the interstate route. The roads were damp or dry and we even had some bright sunshine while driving over the pass. However, once on the western side, the clouds piled up and by the time we got to I-5, the rain was upon us. The wipers on the rear window got a workout - I'm so proud that I remembered to turn it on as it's not needed at home!
This morning is delightfully quiet and I'm trying to read a few blogs, but Newsgator is being s o o o o o s l o w . I may have to switch over to my stitching and try again later.
Monday the plan is to travel to the city and visit IKEA. My first visit there!
