Road Trip Knitting

Yesterday Tim, Pilot and I took a road trip: we drove west to Florence (on the coast), north to Cape Perpetua, north a bit more to Yachats, north and then east to Alsea Fals, and then home.

I drove part of the time, and knit a lot of the time (note: not when I was driving). So i got quite a bit of the body of this sweater done. IT's a little lighter in color but you can see the tweedy goodness.

Cape Perpetua is one of the best places for tidepools on the coast. The tide was out--way, way out so we could walk around a lot of the beach. Much of it is basalt boulders so we did a lot of scrambling around. Pilot was a champ.

We stopped at a good restaurant in Yachats and I had a wonderfully inventive meal: a crab cake eggs benedict. Now, I'm a big fan of the eggs benedict, and fully realize that it is a not-healthy choice so I only eat them on rare occasions. But listen to this twist: a slide of tomato, a crab cake, a poached egg, and hollandaise. Can you say yum? Can you yell yum?

On the way home we stopped by Alsea Falls, a little park south of Corvallis. We haven't been there in a while, mostly because we tend to miss the not-well-marked turnoff to the falls right when you get to the town of Alsea. This time we hit it, and at this time in summer it's not very exciting at the falls but it was a nice place to stretch our legs before the trek home.
