~this ‘n that and beach coastal shots~

Hello friends,


Well that was a rather long unplanned blogging break! I had great intentions for me and this little ol’ blog in the summer months, I always seem to forget just one small detail : my kids are home too!! 

So I didn’t get to post here on the blog but if you follow me on facebook or instagram {raggygirlvintage} you will know a little of my summer goings-on. {I must say I am having a lot of fun with instagram, it is so on-the-go user-friendly and the filters are FUN!}

So I spent much of the summer ferrying the kids to their various activities, but evenso we all enjoyed the change of pace. I hadn’t realised quite how much until I had to start getting up at 6am again. I know for some of you that is the norm, but I find it rather early!!


The highlight of the summer for me was undoubtedly a family trip down to the Oregon coast, it had long been on my wish list and I was smitten, it was love at first sight, simply gorgeous ocean and waves. Loved every minute of it!


Long golden beaches, frothy waves, sunshine, fires on the beach….


This was the view of sunset from our bedroom window. I know. 
We woke to the same view each morning and watched the tide ebb and flow.


And of course I got to do a little of this…


and this…
which about makes for a perfect vacation!


This was one of my favourites, in an old church building that also served as a school once. Gorgeous wood floors and quaint white siding.


Well I just wanted to pop in and say hi and let you know I’m back!
 Remember that beachy coastal party I told you I was planning for the summer, well I have some photos of that to show you too. 
I am not quite ready to leap into fall, I’m holding summer tight with both hands, so we’ll stick with beachy coastal just a little longer shall we?

Just loved this gorgeous weathered board fence down at the beach, wouldn’t it be awesome for making signs. When it falls down of course!


Here are a few more coastal shots:




Some of you may recognise this landmark, yes, it is Haystack Rock!


Be back soon!

I would love to go to the Oregon Coast, too. I have a friend who goes every fall and they love it.

I want to do a trip like that, too! I have been MIA from the blog scene as well, too busy! I am loving instagram, too, it's so easy to use and fun to see daily going-ons.

Oh thank you for posting those wonderful pictures, taking me away to that lovely place. I have to agree with you that I am holding onto summer with both hands too. Welcome back to the land of blogging, I missed ya but am so glad you had such a wonderful time. I must go there sometime soon.
