Weekend Wrap Up - Beach Edition

Once again, it was really hot here this weekend. We thought it would be the perfect chance to drive out to the beach. It was supposed to be 100 degrees here on Saturday and it was only 75 at the beach. We woke up early and hopped in the car to head out. We were excited to get a second chance to go out there since our 4th of July trip got ruined. When we got there we went to one of Justin's favorite restaurants, Mo's. 
We got to sit outside on the deck in the most perfect weather and had a great view of the beach/haystack rock. 
After lunch we went to lay on the beach for a bit and get our toes in the sand. It was pretty windy, but it felt great since it has been so hot around here. I love sitting near Haystack Rock. I just think it is so pretty to look at!
We got to enjoy this view for most of the day. Then we went to this little ice cream shop in town. We went there right after we got engaged so it hold good memories for us :)
We headed back to Portland and camped out in our room for the rest of the night with our AC blasting. I'm so glad that we got to spend some time together doing something that we love. This is the same place we stayed when we got engaged, so it was the perfect place to go to celebrate our first anniversary! I hope you all had a great weekend too!
