When the grind of elementary school, Parks & Recreation or daily life in Redmond get to us, we head for Cape Cod Cottages, just south of Waldport, Oregon. Here's some photos of our week in August playing in the sand with our friends and their families.
This is the infamous Wave Jumping Woman, Linda Dougherty, teaming up with Tori to take on the cold Pacific Ocean.
When Linda's not jumping waves, she's making cool stuff in the sand, like this serpent.

Star Trek Fan Robert made Voyager In Sand, here showing off the sea kelp phaser bank.
