I would be neglectful if I didn't document the awesome breakfasts we had at the B&B in Diamond Point. Above is organic blueberry sour cream coffee cake. It was SO MOIST and nummy!
This Creme Brulee French Toast made from homemade bread was awesome! Each morning we also got an organic fresh fruit platter and organic fruit juices. There was Kona coffee available, but alas, we are not coffee drinkers.
So, day three saw us off on another leg of our journey together. We stopped for some items at Costco and hit the road going west. Several picture taking stops were made along Lake Crescent.
This is Brandy, the house cocker spaniel. She was very behaved, though she did feel that she should be the household food taster! :o) Hubby had a Cocker that looked almost like this and enjoyed seeing her.
The colors in Lake Crescent are even more intense than Lake Tahoe. Everything from this deep blue to a dark jade green, light turquoise and all shades in between. Unfortunately the places that showed the loveliest color changes were not ones where the car could stop. The road is greatly improved since my childhood, but it is still quite twisty and windy.
What we saw was at least three acres in full bloom with wild sweat peas, fireweed (some as tall as me) and vine maples. I was so excited about the flowers that I forgot to go back and photograph the vine maple!

The nicest part was that deck. We didn't know what the future held and how appreciative we would soon be that we could enjoy the ocean without leaving the room! (more in the next post)
Balcony views... fog came and went.
Hubby (with CA/AZ blood!) was frozen, but I did fine. I was at the ocean, so I didn't notice! :o)
When photographing, don't forget to look all around you... beauty shows up in unexpected places! (sunset reflected in wet sand)
