brookings: Brookings, Oregon ~ Live Theater Beauty & The Beast..... Photos!!! - 11/26/08 12:15 PM
Last Weekend wrapped up Brookings~Harbor Children's Theater's production of Disney's Beauty & The Beast.
I was overwhelmed with the support from the community towards their children. All shows last weekend were sold out!
I heard one comment from someone in the audience...."Did they bring an actress from Disneyland to play the part of Belle? She sounds just like the Belle from the movie!"
There were over 50 cast members ranging in age from 5 to 70 something! The costumes were fabulous and the energy unbelievable! All the hard work paid off with a spectacular performance! Enjoy the photos!

brookings: Brookings, OR. ~ Rainbow Rock....Brookings Condo Market Report October 17, 2008 - 10/17/08 04:01 PM

Rainbow Rock is named for the colorful ribbons of different layers of rock at the bottom of the small hill along the beach. This beach is very difficult to get to because it is alongside Highway 101 and the access is pretty much a cliff! There is a vista point turn off on a wide shoulder of the highway and that is how I achieved these photos.
Brookings offers many condominium possibilities. To rent as vacation getaways or to purchase, as investment or primary residences. Pictured here is Rainbow Rock Condominiums, one of many condo units in the Brookings area.

brookings: Brookings, OR. ~ Port of Brookings-Harbor - 10/13/08 04:11 PM
THE PORT OF BROOKINGS - HARBOR is the busiest recreational port on the Oregon Coast.
I believe that it is one of the most beautiful ports. I probably feel this way because I live here and it offers me a place to moor our sailboat as well as a place to walk and enjoy the beach!
The Port of Brookings - Harbor has suffered financial woes in the past and also the present. But I think that the Port commissioners, management and staff will find ways to fix the problems because the port is too important for our community.

brookings: Brookings, Oregon ~ Sailing the Serendipity - 08/25/08 04:43 PM
We finally sailed the Serendipity!!

Yesterday we took her out for the very first time and how exciting it was. But it was also a bit scary. We had never sailed before and I was nervous. I called my mother before we left the house to say good-bye and that I loved her. I also told her if she didn't hear back from me by dark to call the coast guard.
But I had no reason to be afraid. Alan had taken sailing classes with the Brookings Yacht Club and he knew what he was doing....I think! It was a … (11 comments)
