The Coast

*First off I want to say make sure you scroll down to see the pics from the coast and two more new blogs I wrote about the past two weeks here in Portland! :)

Garrett and I met my grandparents from CO and my dad and family in Newport this week. They came to Portland on Sunday night and headed to the coast on Mon. Garrett and me didn't go over until Tuesday due to our anniversary. I hadn't seen my grandparents since the wedding and I really didn't get to see them then either. So, it was great to see them! My dad rented a house that was right on the coast and we all stayed in that. We had a great time going to the beach, the aquarium, shopping, out to eat, playing games, and to a lighthouse! My favorite thing we did, though, was go whale watching. We went out on a boat pretty far out into the ocean to try and see a whale. We didn't end up seeing one, but Garrett and my dad saw three dolphins! I didn't see anything because I was too busy having fun! haha. The boat went so fast and the waves out that far in the ocean are really big! So, the boat was rocking and dipping all over the place. Garrett and me went to the front part of the boat, stood up, and held on to the railing...let's just say we got soaking wet! I could taste salt all over my lips and in my hair. The waves were just so big and would splash us from where we were standing. My grandma, unfortunatley, didn't have such a good time. She was yelling and yelping for her life! She thought we were going to die she said and while we were on the boat she asked me, "Angela, are you praying?!" I said, "no." And she goes, "well, you better start!" haha. Poor grandma. Anyways, we had a great time with my family and I can't wait to do it again!
