Coastal Jaunt

Today Greg and I drove out to the coast to be witnesses at our friends' beach wedding. We set out a few hours early so we could get lunch in Seaside, before making our way down the coast to Cannon Beach and then Manzanita.

I'm quite tired after the journey, so I'll let the photos do the talking, but I do want to mention the dress I'm wearing. I made it myself! Well, I didn't make the black bodice part -- that's an old tank top. But I sewed fabric on the bottom to turn the top into a dress, and added a bow and side ties. The bow came off on one side halfway through the afternoon, but it will be easy to fix.


























I hope you all had a wonderful Friday!

I love the name of your blog. Who! ;P

I wish I had time (and enough summer sunshine) to go to the beach. I miss the sea and looking for baby fish in the rocky pools. Sigh.

Love the cheery outfit and yellow hat!
