I love weekends. I sleep in, eat too much, let my house pile up around me and usually sew a ton.
This weekend was a little different. We’ve just about made this weekend an annual October event at the beach. As I said last time, it’s not the best time of year to be at the beach, but we lucked out and scored one night in a yurt.
I LOVE these things! They are equipped with a bunk bed and a fold-out futon, table, chairs, lights, and a heater. We left Portland at 5pm, checked-in at 7pm, and headed out razor clamming at 8pm. After a long, very wet and windy night clamming, we were able to warm up in our little yurt with some hot cocoa and a dry bed. Aaaah.
You have to reserve these things way early, (the reservations open up 6 months prior and you have to reverse it fast!), but at $30/night, it’s well worth it. We only had the yurt for one night, but it happened to be the only rainy day of the whole weekend. The next night was spent in our little tent and I loved sleeping while surrounded by our kids.
I just know you all are dying with excitement!
