Super Bowl Stitching
Sunday was such an enjoyable day for me and DH. We started out with a nice brunch at the hotel, enjoying the view of the beach and many cups of coffee. Then we did a little driving/geocaching. This time of year you can drive the entire beach at Ocean Shores! I was a little skeptical of driving DH's car out there, but the beach is much flatter than at Long Beach, so the sand is well packed right up to the access road.
At 11 a.m. DH had a meeting to attend so I settled into our room to stitch and catch up on email/blogs/Facebook, while watching a bit of tv, House and then Failure to Launch. Just before kickoff we went out to join the gang for the Superbowl. There were a couple of huge Steeler fans so the excitement was high, especially in the fourth quarter. I found a comfortable room with a good light so I could stitch and watch the game, then go out a be sociable every now and then. :) Things worked out well - great game, food, people, and stitching!
Unfortunately, I did catch a cold from my kids which hit me on Sunday, so after taking some medicine I slept in until 9 a.m. Monday, and we didn't get back to the restaurant for breakfast. Not being that hungry, we packed up our gear and headed out for some more geocaching on the way home.
How many times have I driven down Highway 12 and didn't know that just a minute away were these little treasures?
Say hello to the very top of Mt. St. Helens!
