[info]the_child and I have been spending the weekend at the beach house belonging to my parents and [info]lillypond (a/k/a my sister).

Yesterday after a slow morning, we headed down to Long Beach for lunch at Doogers. Subsequently we went to Scrappacino in search of Anna Lena's fudge. There we found this delectable comestible:


Which I tried a sample of:


It tasted about like what you'd think garlic and fudge mixed together would taste like. Two great tastes that really don't taste great together, in this case.

The store also featured scrapping and fabric arts supplies.


Outside, we wandered by the world's largest pair of chopsticks.



We then faffed about a bit, including me not finding the putt putt golf course in Long Beach, before heading down to the Neptune Theater to see Braveimdb ]. Nearby I saw the following sign, which I present without further comment:


Later, after the movie, the sun finally came out, so we hit the beach.


In which I present as astonishingly unattractive



After that, we laid low until everyone fell asleep. This morning, [info]lillypond and I walked across the peninsula to the bay side, during which walk we saw both a coyote and a raccoon. No bears, though.

Home to Portland after lunch.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

On the other hand (unsweetened) chocolate pasta with home-made garlic alfredo sauce is very good.

Although on the whole Lisa is better off out of Oregon, one of the things we enjoyed was our daily trip to Seaside in early June, usually followed by a day in Long Beach where we hit the pinball palace (the Dodge City Shooting Gallery). And Dodgers is a pretty good restaurant as such places go, too.
