Knitting retreat at historic lighthouse
I just got back from the Oregon Coast. I attended a knitting retreat at the Heceta Lighthouse B&B, which is the beautiful historic lighthouse keeper's house (it is the large white building on the right side of the picture). Instead of staying at the B&B, I stayed at the vacation home owned by a friend on the beachfront in Yachats not far from the Heceta Head Lighthouse. I started my Sea Wool socks while sitting in the historic lighthouse keeper's home enjoying the view of the coastline (and thinking of Mr. & Mrs. T knitting at the warm beach in Southern California). I started my Pi Shawl afghan using Icelandic wool while sitting in the vacation home at Yachats gazing out at the ocean waves. It was a beautiful Oregon Coast weekend complete with rain, wind, spots of sun, and invigorating fresh cool air ( I may have hopped, skipped, and jumped a little). Most of all, it was a great weekend because of the people with whom I spent time knitting and talking.
