We had to get out of the city for a bit and took a trip to visit family in northern California. We took as rural a route as we could with a stop in Pacific City, Oregon.

Little Ollie is still sitting cozy in the womb a week past his due date, so we have been busy filling the time. Esther and baby are happy and healthy. We are just getting restless waiting to meet our son. Here are some of the things we’ve been doing!

Trips to the zoo! (I stubbed my toe real bad so I needed a walking stick…)

Floating sausages!

Boating!

Gasworks Park!

Procuring all the tasty things Esther hasn’t eaten for 9 months!

Midwife appointments and fetal monitoring.Walks.

And seeing if we can make Ollie jealous and want to get out of there!

The weather was too nice to be couch fiends, so we went to Cama Beach State Park. Enjoyed a peaceful walk on the beach and found some sweet sticks.

Massage day! We woke up in our big bed and had a big breakfast. After lounging around we eventually ventured out to find pizza. An annoying seagull wouldn’t leave us alone while we ate in the park. To get back to the other side of the bay we rode a water taxi! We then had a fantastic massage and ate Thai food (Tim’s appetizer consisted of a spring roll and shrimp with his Caesar beverage). We finished up the day by watching movies in bed. A very fine day!

We woke up in Victoria and had a very nice breakfast at the hotel. We then went to Miniature World! So many big little scenes and the world’s smallest operating lumber mill! We then had really good seafood on the waterfront and took a nap. The evening finished up with a fantastic meal at Olo in Chinatown. We then finished the day by watching Office Space on a small screen, because that’s a thing we do in hotel rooms.
