Hike #21 Cape Meares

The road to Cape Meares
My husband and I have decided to do more hiking this summer as something we can do together as a couple and for more exercise. Little did we know that on our beach trip last weekend we would go on two hikes and not even know it.
Our first adventure, which happens to be the unknown hike was Cape Meares light house which is hike number 21 on oregonhiking.com. We took the easy hike that was 0.6 miles round trip so not a very long one, but nice just the same.
A little history on the light house that I borrowed from the above mentioned web page.

"An 1890 lighthouse and an ancient spruce forest top this dramatic bluff. The headland’s name honors British Captain John Meares, who built a fur-trading fort in Nootka, Alaska and sailed south in 1788 questing for the great river of the Northwest. He overlooked the Columbia and turned back here. "


From the trail head we found an amazing view of the cape on both sides. I can't believe how beautiful the ocean can be. I think that's why I love it so much, it takes my breath away every time I see it.


We stopped to take a few pictures to prove that we were there.

Maybe next time we'll take the more difficult 3.6 mile hike in that area. If we only knew, right? The greatest thing about this trip was the time I got to spend with my husband and the amazing things that I got to experience. Like dime size hail coming out of no where.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
