Last week a friend came to visit from Ohio and it was his first time in Oregon so naturally we took him to some of our favorite places. Brent had never been to the Oregon coast so my husband and I were anxious to show off Astoria and Cannon Beach.
I was particularly excited because I knew exactly what I was going to wear that day! I’ve had this 1910s (perhaps early 1920s) navy knit cardigan with the attached lace collar for months now and I just completed the mending about 2 weeks ago although it hasn’t been cold enough to wear it. The forecast called for rain, clouds, and fog and this antique sweater needed no invitation to accompany me to the coast on such a moody day.
I never tire of these grey skies. I love when the sky and sea are almost the same color and the horizon blurs in this hazy fog of silver. I adore this very much. I am hypnotized and transfixed watching the waves rush to shore with soft peals of white.
I found this delightful photo of a woman in an antique shop in Astoria called Astoria Hardware and I ended up chatting with the owner, Becky, who coincidentally follows me on Instagram! What a small world!
