Raining again on our days off! Geez :-)
Yesterday we drove to Tillamook to pick up groceries.
We've switched from Safeway to Fred Meyer (a Kroger company),
as it has a gas rewards program as well.
Safeway has it, but no gas stations in the area yet.
Today we took a drive to Lincoln City.
It is about a 25 minute drive south of Hebo,
along Hwy 101, with wonderful views of the ocean.
There is a little river (World's shortest!) that flows from
Devil's Lake to the ocean, about 120 feet!
Before we did some exploring, George dropped me off to get a pedicure.
He always finds someplace to get coffee while he's waiting :-)
I also made an appointment to see an Opthamologist.
About a month ago, I had a lightning bolt type flash
in my right eye, followed by more than usual floaters.
He numbed my eyeball, dilated my eye,
and proceeded to blind me by looking at my retina.
He didn't find anything damaged, but gave me the
'as we age we will see more floaters & flashes'.
He even gave me a pamphlet about the subject.
The doctor does want to see me in another month.
George & I decided to find someplace for lunch.
We passed a place called Mo's, which is in the Taft section of Lincoln City.
It had terrific views, which, because my eyes were dilated, were not fun,
I had a bread bowl of clam chowder, and George had a chili bowl.
The chowder wasn't very good, and their beer tap was not working,
so we couldn't have a nice cold one :-(
We have one more day off this week..
and I'm going to make sure that it is a better one!
