Newport, Oregon: We are on vacation so had a very relaxing day and didn't do much touristing. The weather was chilly overnight and we had to use our radiant floor heaters! In July! Catching up: last night we gave April's at Nye Beach another try. It was again a mistake. Our appetizer was lovely, but my sole was too salty to eat. Thankfully our anniversary picnic lunch was perfect, because dinner was a big disappointment.

This morning we woke to more fog and ran in cool weather, but by lunchtime the clouds had gone and it proved to be a really nice day. My cousin's daughter, Kara, was in town (camping at a nearby state park). We asked her to join us for lunch.

Venice Las Vegas. Happy Birthday, Meghan!

Someone else having a birthday very soon:

Rogue Distillery tasting room (basically in the RV park!) for a cocktail.

The Rogue Distillery

We stayed "home" tonight. I cooked an easy vegetarian (I'm fished-out) dinner and we watched the Diamond League London track meet on television. True love.

Shabbat Shalom!

Until my next update, I remain, your caught-up correspondent.
