All Work and No Play?

Hi foodie friends! I don’t want you to think I dropped off the face of the planet. We were gone for a week to our RV river property on the Oregon Coast with no cell service or interwebz. I didn’t give a heads up since I have quite a few more readers on board since I started my blog over four years agoย โ€” one can never be too safe!

My husband did the majority of “work” on the property to get it ready for the upcoming fishing and crabbing season, but we had plenty of relaxing time, including a trip to the Tillamook Cheese Factory and then to scope out a new store/exhibit in Lincoln City called “Prehistoric.” I got to touch dinosaur bones 165 million years old! I’m a kid at heart.

Prehistoric in Lincoln City <— click here for a video about it.

All is well in foodie land, I plan on posting a new recipe next week. Here’s a couple of photos from the trip to tide you over. ๐Ÿ™‚

Husband and neighbor pushing dock into the river ~ it floods every year so we pull it out.

Here’s what we hope to be pulling out of the Siletz Bay in a couple of months! This is me with part of last year’s catch!

      Since I work on a computer all day for my day job and blog at night or weekends, the break from it all was certainly livable. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those crabs look awesome! Is there a limit on the number you can catch or is there a size limi?
