Marcus and I got the chance to celebrate our (belated) 18th wedding anniversary at the beautiful Stephanie Inn in Cannon Beach.
Summer was a busy season of work travel for Marcus, so it took a while to find some time to get away to celebrate. In late September my parents flew out to watch the kids, and Marcus and I finally got our chance!
We had originally thought we might fly to Las Vegas for a short three-day trip (spa time, fantastic food, and shows!) but we changed our minds and opted for something more low-key and a lot closer. We had never been to the amazing Stephanie Inn, so this was our chance!
|First stop: New Seasons to pick up fixing' for a delicious |
deli dinner. We got all the classics, including a baguette,
a wedge of creamy brie, and decadent chocolate cake.
|After checking in, we felt right at home. AHHHHH!!|
|a late lunch at a local seafood joint before our spa|
massage appointments back at the hotel
|relaxing on the balcony after our massages|
|delish brunch the next morning|
|walk on the beach--gorgeous weather|
|our hotel--bottom finger|
coffee shop--top finger
|early dinner (to be able to catch the sunset later)|
|just relaxin' on our last morning at the beach|
This was quite the relaxing, much-needed vacation! I am so grateful that grandma and grandpa were able and willing to come and watch the kids. The best part was that, when we got home on Friday night, I still had more than 3 full days with them!!
I think the Stephanie Inn (with grandma and grandpa as babysitters) might become a regular occurrence... ;o)
