Well the weekend began Friday morning with a quick trip through the…you know…

then off to the beach.  The weather was all over the place this weekend, providing us with many views, all beautiful, of Siletz Bay…

We got out “Diploma” and “Diana”…our now almost 44 year old wedding bikes (their birthday is September 20th) which have been confined to the beach for some years…

and took a spin to see what was happening “in the city” …Jim and Carol are replacing their failed LP siding …

and we heard some very bad news from a neighbor…that one of our FAVORITE little cottages is about to be torn down and replaced with a manufactured house…this the fate of MANY of our favorite cottages over these 20 years…(and they will no doubt cut down the tree too…alas).

I think this might be the last of the legion of board and batten sided cottages that made us fall in love with Cutler City years ago…all either resided or torn down.  They mostly began life as fishing cottages and were often built without foundations on the sand.  Still…if this were, let’s just say, NANTUCKET for example, somebody would buy this nd make it even more adorable.  Unluckily, we can’t buy them all…

We tried to drown our sorrow in the last fresh MIG blueberry pie of the season…
