Munson Falls

At 319' Munson Falls is the tallest Waterfall in the Oregon Coast Range. Sunday January 16 after days of rain is was particularly spectacular. Sadly due to the heavy rain I couldn't get any good photos of it so this will have to do!

Breakfast & Beer at the Pelican Pub..

In my defense it was 11:30am so almost 12:00!
 The beginning of what turned out to be an action packed day of floods, landslides, giant waterfalls & lots of rain!

Christmas cake from Home!

So Anwen smuggled some of my Mum's home made Christmas cake through customs when she came back last Thursday! The piece on the left is all my Dad was willing to give up but luckily she was able to cut off a second piece when nobody was looking :^)....
