And a happy one it’s been, according to him! We woke to rain again, and once again, the sun prevailed and it turned into a beautiful day.
I asked Jim what he wanted to do for his birthday, and here’s what he chose:
First, a walk on the beach:
There are several access points to the beach along Lincoln City, which is pretty much a strip city along Highway 101. Today we chose to go to the beach at “D River”, known as the shortest river in the world, because it just flows from Devils Lake on one side of the highway, across the beach and into the Pacific.
After our walk, we sat on a park bench and watched the tide come in. I thought the sign behind him was very appropriate:
Once we were assured the tide was coming in, our next stop was:
The outlet mall, where we kept up with our past tradition of buying clothes for me on his birthday! Now, before you all get upset with me for spending money on myself on my husband’s birthday, I just want to make sure you understand that he just got new clothes and a new camera! Today, he also got several barbeque brushes, a fish turner and some cheese sauce.
After our shopping trip, we came home for some college football watching and a short rest before our evening adventure.
One of our very favorite restaurants, and for sure our favorite seafood restaurant, is located just a few miles south of here, and this was Jim’s choice for dinner:
If you want to be frugal, there are some lower cost items on the menu, but since this was a very special night, we went all out with drinks, appetizer, fabulous entrees, and dessert. It was worth every penny to celebrate Jim.

What an outstanding day, thank you for sharing it with me, my love!
