That's right! We went to Long Beach Washington this past weekend for our Anniversary. And what a great time we had! We left right from work on friday and got into Long Beach at around 10 pm.

Nathan thought it would be fun to drive on the beach. I said ok, but was really nervous and told him not to get stuck. So we are driving in the pitch black down toward the water when our car all of a sudden sinks about 4 inches. Yes, we got stuck in the sand. I then proceed to freak out even more after nathan tries to get unstuck, can't and tells me I have to drive while he pushes from the front. We finally got out, just shy of my starting to cry. I'm so weird.

The next morning we woke up and went to breakfast in town. While eating I was doing my usual of listening to other people's conversations and her a lady talk about the light houses. We went to the 'free museum/gift shop' and looked around for about an hour. It reminds me a lot of "Ye olde curiosity shoppe' on the water front in seattle, really weird and cool at the same time. While paying for the treasures we found, I asked the cashier lady about the light houses and she gave us directions.

This is the Light house at North Head. So cool! Its the first light house I have ever seen in real life. You can read more about it here.

This is a picture of this cool cove by the light house. We then went to the other light house on the coast called cape disappointment. It was nice little hike out to the light house, and had an AMAZING view of the mouth of the colombia and ocean. You can read more about the light house and cape here

Sunday before we had to leave, we drove down to the beach to take one last look at the beautiful beach and get some more pics. Look at Nathan's hair! It was so windy, but you can't tell because my hair was pulled back, so it just looks like he has really big hair.

It was a wonderful anniversary trip. We didn't have to worry about anything but each other and enjoying the short time we had to ourselves.
