My grandma died January 28, 2013 so there is a whole family drama with the siblings not agreeing.
In the meantime, my brother and his 2 kids are moving in with me.
Amongst all of this stuff, I planned on a trip to the Oregon Coast (suppose to be with a travel partner but that did not come about) that included many great things that I missed doing as a kid with my grandparents.
Day one: traveled to Astoria, that takes about 6 hours from Walla Walla, WA. Stopped by Multnomah Falls, enjoyed the lack of tourists, and it was not raining for once. I found a great buy on Groupon for hotel room on the pier at Astoria for $60, included breakfast too.

Finally, I made my way to Lincoln City, my final destination for the next few days. I pretty much unloaded, had some wine, and crashed.
Now it's about lunch time, I visited the Devil's Punchbowl and had a nice lunch in the sun.
Next, visit the Tanger Outlet Mall. I manged to get a whole outfit for $10. Score! By the time I made it back to the condo, it was starting to cloud up and no fancy sunset. No tourists at the heat pool again! I sewed some more on my purple & lime quilt. I also started packing some items for tomorrow's departure.
Day five: travelled back to Walla Walla, pretty uneventful. A friend of mine was in town for work and we hanged out. My brother and the two kids moved in and enjoyed some sick kids.
