Last weekend, Mike, my sister Janice, and I took an overnight trip to Coos Bay. The main attraction was to attend the artist reception at Coos Art Museum where I have two pieces hanging. Since there were 350 submissions, I felt honored to have two paintings accepted.
I had fun planning the trip. We stayed at the Old Tower Bed and Breakfast, which I chose with Janice in mind. As an historian, I knew she'd enjoy the Victorian decor. We also took an evening walk, after the reception, at Shore Acres, a state part which is decorated with a zillion Christmas lights. It's really amazing with leaping frogs, breaching whales and pelicans all done with lights. The walk was cold and rainy, but we were prepared with layers and umbrellas. Mike only rolled his eyes when I suggested we have a similar display at our house next year!
