Serge and Nikki had planned a hike during our stay at Seaside and today was the day. They packed the baby carrier for Theo - which is didn't want to get into because he doesn't like to be confined. Kim and Chuck joined us. At the trailhead, we tried to figure out how far we would have to go for the first lookout point. We walked up steadily but there didn't seem to be any lookouts for that first bit. The entire trail was 7 miles long and went all the way to Cannon Beach. I am not sure how far we went - we climbed over and under huge logs; hopped and slid over the mud patches in the trail. Other than the mud, the trail was lovely...with huge trees, lots of ferns, and wildflowers along the trail.
After Theo's afternoon nap, Nikki and Serge took him out with his lawnmower walker on the beach. They found that the sand next to the water's edge was the best for pushing. Theo whizzed along with Serge encouraging him, or chasing him. It is always fun to watch his little feet run behind the mower. He absolutely loves that toy!
