Leavenworth, WA & Brookings, OR

We have been on vacation since last Thursday and we are loving every minute. This is just a quick blog with mostly pictures :)

We went to Leavenworth for Erin's cousin's wedding and spent some great quality time with his family in WA.

This was a Bavarian themed town tucked way up in the beautiful mountains. It was surreal having them that close to use. They also had great german food and beer :)

Then we headed to the coast. The ocean has been pretty rough so no diving really for Erin, except one dive where he grabbed us huge scallops. And lots and lots of crab!!!! Every day we are pulling in pots full of them.

 Erin caught a lin cod his first day here, what a beauty! And that is me just trying to hold that big thing, it was really heavy.

 This is a dear friend John and this is his fleet! They are great boats and we are blessed to be with him and using his boats on this trip.
 Brit was with us for a few days and this is her actually touching a crab!!
 Me, Jeannie (Erin's mom if you can't tell) and Erin.
 It's a rough life :)

And then these are pictures of the giant sea scallops and some fish.

And of course, it wouldn't be a beach trip with out the seagulls. Literally it's at our kitchen window.

  1. How fun! I have never caught a crab and then cook it. Someday that would be so fun....I LOVE crab. Next week, you guys need to come up for a day to visit church camp. Miss you! :-)
