 Things are changing at the Beach.  CARTM, the recycling center has been remodeled.  We were at the grand opening today.  They have reorganized and cleaned out a lot of stuff.  They now have a place to sell created art pieces from  other "junk".  It was fun to walk around and see what has been done.  There were many inspiring projects. 
We have also done a bit of fixing up the beach house.  We put a book case at the end of the hall way, and are waiting for some more items to fill up the shelves.  We also put a new quilt in the master bedroom that we hope everyone will like.  There are now matching quilts in the second bedroom.  In the hall we put up picture shelves and a starfish hanging.  Gary also put up new towel hooks in the bathroom.  We now have plenty of room for towels.The walls look a little bare, but I am sure we will find just the right items to put up. 
Also in the spirit of remodeling, Moe's has been remodeled.  They opened up the dining room, more tables, painted yellow.  But they still have the same benches and tables that make the place Moe's.  I didn't have my camera to take a picture but will add one as soon as we eat there again. 
We are off on our cruise on Sunday, hopefully I can blog, but if not then when we come back.

You can tell by the pictures that we are at the Oregon Coast.  We don't pack swim suits we pack rain coats!  We spent most of the week cleaning out Grandma's house, and on Saturday Gayle joined us for a Mother's Day picnic.  Then we headed for the beach.  We didn't even care that it was raining we had to go for a walk on the beach.  Gary was also practicing with his new camera and did some close up pictures of some flowers.   Hopefully it won't rain the whole time we are here.
