Sandy Cove Inn - Seaside Oregon Motels

Dips, Bumps and Squiggles


Recently Mike and I took the girls to the beach in search of tiny sand dollars. Did you know you can find sand dollars smaller than than a pencil eraser? In our search, we met up with a local who told us all about tiny sand dollars, olive shells and seaweed.  This friendly woman also told us what the different designs in the sand meant.

Next time you visit, look down at the sand and you’ll notice dips and bumps and squiggles.  Underneath these funny marks in the sand you’ll find a sand crabs, olive shells and razor clams.

One of my favorite things about our beach walks is meeting up with people who have lived in Seaside for decades.  They know so many secrets about the way the ocean and its critters work.  Fascinating!

The Firehouse Cafe in Seaside, Oregon

Serving Sleepy Monk Coffee - yum!

I am beyond excited to publish this post.  Why?  Because a new restaurant has come to town!  We finally have an excellent breakfast spot to send you to when you visit.  The Firehouse Cafe recently opened (right next to my favorite dinner restaurant Yummy).  The decor is minimal but cheerful, the staff are delightful and knowledgeable, the owners are friendly and the food is fantastic – simple, fresh, delicious – what more could you ask for?
