We went for a drive to Tillamook today. We planned to go to Astoria and to the beaches up around there, but it started raining, despite Often Wrong’s declaration that it would not. So we headed back south to Lincoln City where it had stopped raining and was lovely on the beach. No wind, amazing waves, and sun-gilded clouds. I let the dogs off the leash for a bit and they raced, and then I caught them again. The kids were trailing behind doing kid things in the sand, and I turned around to see where girlie was. I saw this ball rolling past her and asked her if she was playing with it and where did she get it. About that time I had an inkling that maybe, just maybe, it was wasn’t a ball but a float.
It was!!! In Lincoln City, they put out blown glass floats on the beaches throughout the season for people to find. And we found one!!! It’s signed and numbered and dated 2013. If you follow that link, you’ll see some examples. I’ll have to take a picture of ours and post it. It’s splotched green, purple, and cobalt blue. It’s so lovely.
WE FOUND TREASURE TODAY!!!! How cool is that?
How about you? What did you do today?
