I have so much to to blog about our vacation that I really do not know where to start. So how about with a bit of humour, right off the bat?
Toward the end of our holiday we spent about five days camped at one of our favorite places on the Oregon coast, Humbug State Park. Its located just south of a quaint little seaside town called Port Orford. We've been to Port Orford several times over the years.
We discovered a unique thrift store there called "The Little Shop of Horrors" and it proved to not be scary at all, but it was a bit eclectic and interesting. That first year Mr. Miles bought me a pretty treasure chest which I still have. So this summer we thought we would see if it was still there.
I always regretted that I had not taken photos on the first visit there because the owner has several dogs who are so funny! One is a Bulldog, there's a HUGE furry fluffy dog (like 3 - 4 ft tall!) named Thor, and a sad, forlorn, melancholy looking Basset Hound - I'm not exactly sure I even saw the fourth dog and what breed it might be. I just recalled they were all interesting characters and regretted having not taken a photo so this time I promised myself I would take a picture if I had the opportunity.
The critters were definitely still there and so after asking permission, my Mr. was enlisted to snap a few on his camera because my camera has no flash (quit working a while back)
Turns out the dog was having a little rest, cuddle up to one of its many teddies, under a table.
So, I coaxed it out from under there - did not take more than a mere call and he posed real pretty for me.
Don't you just love that stray fang? Well, once he realized he was in the spotlight with my Mr. taking pics he kept running right up to the camera and so I called him back to me...
And it was like a 100 lb sausage launched itself at me - knocked me right OVER! Of course Mr. caught that on camera too - me reduced to a puddle of laughter, the dog thinking it was all a big game till I got up off the floor.
So, if you are ever in Port Orford, Oregon - stop into the shop but whatever you do don't get down to face level with the dogs!
What did I buy this time? I bought a dozen sticks of Wildberry Incense sticks. DELICIOUS scents! Have you ever heard of them - do YOU like incense?
Thank you to all of you who came and visited in my absence and your lovely emails too!
