MLK weekend

Bam !! Clam !! We are back baby !! Cheryl, Greg and Wanda left Oceans Shore beach full of holes after digging up 45 clams in about 45 minutes. Came back and deep-fried them. Delicious. Have plenty left over to make clam chowder. Look forward to hitting the coast again next month.... We might even test out our new tent that we bought at REI. It has really cool features and is extremely easy to put up.

For MLK, our original plan was to visit the Woodland Park Zoo. However that plan was cancelled by errands that took longer than we anticipated. Instead, Cheryl had a hankering to cook a pot roast in our new slow cooker. After grocery shopping we came home with a 2.5lb tip sirloin roast. While the roast was cooking, Cheryl spontaneously decided to go for a hike to work up an appetite. We decided to test our new hiking boots by climbing to the summit of Rattlesnake Ridge in the ice and snow !! The view was awesome on a crisp, sunny, clear Pacific NW day. Came home to the magnificent smell of the roast and devoured most of it.
