After the skate, we enjoyed roasting marshmallows on the beach and marveled at how beautiful it was. Night skates are always a blast, you know this if you have ever been on one, but skating along the prom as the sunset was truly wonderful.

|Saturday morning brought another story, heavy rain started early, and it
didn't look like it was going to let up. Andrew and I put on our coats and walked up
to the turnaround
looking for skaters that may have driven in hoping for a beautiful day. After about 15 minutes we threw in the towel and headed for coffee at the internet cafe and sat down to look at the satellite weather report. The front looked like it would move through, so we headed back to the beach house where Tom dropped in on his way back to Seattle, with a few dozen delicious fresh baked donuts for all the skaters. Thank you TOM!..they were terrific. So what do you do when mother nature changes your plans?..Maria, Jerry, Andrew and Anna, went for a drive to Astoria, Jessica took a Nap and Matt and I hauled the kids to the Factory Outlet stores and everyone got haircuts.
About 1:30pm..the steam was rising from the pavement and the clouds dissipated and we all rallied at the beach house, for an afternoon of sunny, 70 degree weather and skated! Again through the city, along the prom and then we headed up Tillamook Head for a "butt buster" skate.
We met up with Kurt and Jan on the way back, and spent the afternoon doing some fun skate dancing on the Prom.
