hit the ball donkey, hit the ball

Hello again beautiful Oregon!

Ken & I went for our second Oregon trip this year!!  This time, we headed 10.5 hours south (2 hours from Cali) to Bandon Beach.  We had the most beautiful suite right on the beach with our own private balcony, private jacuzzi tub and fireplace!  The suite also had a full kitchen and 2 complete bathrooms!

We had a beautiful backyard - practically all to ourselves!  We had an amazing stroll on the beach on our first night after a long drive.

We ended up at a restaurant beside our hotel and had the patio to ourselves.  We had some cheap drinks, and lobster, prawns, asparagus, soup, salad, sprouts & potatoes for dinner!  The lobster was also only $14 for a whole one which I picked from the tank!

After an amazing dinner, we watched a beautiful sunset :)

The next day we went to Bandons Petting Zoo!  I was amazed at the ammount of animals you can play with includng a baby bear and bobcat!

Deer ran everywhere and wouldnt leave us alone!

Ken had goats following him around

And also made friends with the beaver like animals

We saw bears having sex which was pretty entertaining.

We walked with some emu, and listened to peacocks

I hung out with a donkey

We saw lions and tigers also...

Ater the zoo, we headed over to face rock to relax.

We ordered some cranberry wood smoked bbq chicken wings which lasted for our lunch, dinner, and even the following day!

We also went sunset horseback riding on the beach!

We saw seal rock where the 12 foot sharks go and feed (one shark washed up on shore the day before we arrived)

after an amazing few days at Bandon Beach, we headed back to the city... of course stopping at Coach in Oregon for some crazy good deals tax free first!!

You ever see a dog paying puppy support

Our first BC Lions game together!!!

We won tickets from a raffle at my work including an autographed game jersey which fit me too big, so Ken got to have it :)

The BC lions won by almost 40 points!  It was a great game :)

We also went to go cheer on my home team Denmark in the Eurocup at the Charlatan against Germany.  It was a great game, and even though Denmark lost, I'm very proud of my country!!  We had Carlsberg on tap!  It's great our favorite beer (which happens to be danish) is the official beer of the Eurocup!

We also had breakfast at the Charlatan.  I love how their hash had yam!!

I also went to Earls for a patio lunch with some coworkers where we had the worst service ever... seriously.. what restaurant takes over an hour to makes salads and a sundae!!!  Atleast they gave us each $20 giftcards for the horrible service.  My salad was really good atleast!

Since I had a free $20 giftcard, and I lost a NBA bet, I took my coworker out to lunch the next day at Earls where I tried the fish tacos which were also really good.

I love you like a toothpaste loves a brush, I love you like a toilet loves a flush

Sunset Wine Cruise!

I always see groupons for sunset wine cruises.. so this time, 7 of us picked it up and redeemed it a few fridays ago..

We recieved 8 different wine pours, and all we knew was that 4 were whites, and 4 were reds, and we would have to rate the wines and would find out what they were at the end of the cruise.

It was a wonderful evening for Ken, myself and our friends :)
