Vacation: Part 12: Arch Rock: 03/03/07
Over the Presidents' Day weekend we took our first vacation as a family of four. I've been posting photo montages of each place we stopped on my livejournal site but I plan to post a more in depth description of what we did here, one stop per day.
Our final stop in Oregon was to the Arch Rock overlook. It's a cross between a rest stop and a nature trail. Sean and Ian raced up the trail with Harriet and me trailing behind. Harriet had fallen asleep in the car so I had to take extra care to see that she was comfortable in the sling. Arch Rock is part of Rockaway Beach.
The wind had really picked up when we stopped at Arch Rock. I took a spare cardigan and tucked Harriet in to her sling with it so she could stay warm and continue her nap if she wanted.
Once we were done admiring the arch in the ocean and taking the loop trail around the cliff we were ready to head back into California. Ian and I also swapped spots as he had done all the driving so far. For the next hour or so Ian, Sean and Harriet would all be napping while I drove.
