Better at the Beach…

 

Beautiful ViewHDR (High Dynamic Range) of the beach…

It’s not as warm as it has been in Lincoln City, but the sun came out today and there’s a fun car show going on.  This weekend is the drawing for three cars – a Dodge Charger, a Chevy Camero, and a Ford Mustang.  Six entries are chosen from a huge hopper (yes, I have mine in) and one person from those six wins a car with the others winning $1,000.00.

Has anyone out in blog-land won a big prize like that?  I can’t even begin to imagine what I would do if my name were called.  ;-)

There’s a car show going on this weekend…

Old Blue Red Engine
There were blue cars like this Chevy BelAir with fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror. This very cool red car had a reflective plate in the engine compartment!  ;-)

 

 My favorite one was this…

jamesdean

very cool yellow roadster with the inside hood decoration inspired by James Dean.

Foggy Ocean

All in all it was a beautiful day at the beach!  :-)

 

 

Share the Love!

    Cheryl, it looks beautiful there. It is nice that you are having good weather. Who doesn’t love James Dean, fuzzy dice and old cars.

    I remember, when I was a kid riding in my brother’s brand new Ford Mustang, it was grey with red interior! I was in love with that car.

    I have never won anything as grand as a car, in fact I have never come even close!

    Have fun at the beach!

    We will be on the road again in about two months! I can’t believe the summer is almost over.

    Believe it or not – we actually did win a car. A 1957 Chevy. We went to a car show in PA when we lived back East and bought the winning ticket. Loved that car. But we had to sell it when we moved West. Couldn’t afford to get it out west with us. We sure had fun with it for a few years. Sure hope you win something.

    You and John would get along just fine! He loves those old cars. Me? Nah. Now, if it were an antique spinning wheel or weaving loom, I might get excited. :-P

  4. Check out Kevin and Ruth’s blog. They’ve recently won a fabulous trip to Namibia; they’ll be leaving in October or November for four months. The trip was scheduled for only a couple of weeks, I believe; but they talked with the tour people and changed how they’ll do it – no big fancy hotels but rather an RV to camp in. So they’re going to see so much more than the tour allows for. If you haven’t read their blog, it’s great. They’ve bee full-timers since about 2007 or so and they’re each only 52. I met them in Mexico this past Winter and fell in love with both of them. Their life is VERY interesting and adventurous.
    I do hope we can connect to meet in person some time – soon!
    Love your photo today.

    Love the beach pictures. I love the beach haven’t been on one in a very long time.
    I guess I will miss the car show this year in the White Mountains.

  6. Everything is better at the beach.
    Just love th classic cars.
    If we won one of those prizes pretty sure we would just sell it off.

    I love the car shows, especially when they have the night parades. It is amazing how much work goes into one of those gems. I can never get enough of the beach. The money always runs out before the fun.

    We passed by there this week. Stopped in Lakeside. We saw several of the cars, now I know why they were around.

    Won a TV once…turned out to be a small 11″ TV given away by a local (Arkansas) TV News Station…..whole family was on their news show for like 11 seconds (no coincidence that he TV Station was Channel 11 too).

    Love your beach/ocean shot. We are five miles from Oregon along the coast ourselves, moving north 65 miles today…but we did 35 miles into Oregon yesterday with our HHR…..mostly foggy, but got a few sunny shots too. Glad things are going well for you Cheryl. –Dave

    I won a pen once and Colin won that solar tube light. Most important is the big win of just being able to travel to Mexico and sit on the beach for 5 solid months. To be be able to do that is most important of all., as long as we are doing it in the Rv of course.

    So glad you’re still enjoying Lincoln City. Car shows are great fun and who knows, you might get lucky. I think we once won a Weber BBQ at an Escapees Rally!
