the drag down I5 to seaside for an extended thanksgiving break was well worth it. loads of beach time — not bad for November, especially as this time last year we were throwing snow balls

A small hike with granddad and Rachel to the falls at Olallie State Park. We did the hike backwards, because dad missed the exit.

Can you help sort which is which?

The girls bravely left Les and I in charge, and nipped up to Orcas for a couple of days at Fawlty Towers . We think they had fun, but every time they try and talk about it they descend into giggles...
