Rock me gently… Rockaway Beach Trip!

The last evening of Fitbloggin’ I opted to take off and go see my family whom I had not seen in more than half my life. My cousin, my soul sister, my kindred spirit Eva.  I was sad to miss out of the farewell reception and the other various activities that night would hold at the hotel… but adventure awaited me! I also got to see my cousin Tyler, whom I had also not seen and met his beautiful girlfriend, who is now his fiance (woo-woo). It was awesome!!

Ready?…Set… ADVENTURE!!!!

Hop in! Let's GO!

One thought on “Rock me gently… Rockaway Beach Trip!

  1. I am pissed I missed that cool looking bus at the Tillamook factory! I suppose a fire alarm will do that though; did I mention that part of my trip to you? So odd to look at those beach pics and on-the-road pics and feel like I was there…which I was…just not with you…but in such near spirit.

    Yay Oregon!
