Saturday 19 June 2010: Celebrity blip
This morning we departed for our trip heading north on Hwy 101 to our camping destination. We arrived at Beverly Beach State Park campground near Newport. After getting set up, we decided to go to Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It was such a gorgeous day, sunny and warm. I was able to photograph the lighthouse with some nice clouds in the background and very blue skies. There were some wildflowers in bloom that were pretty in the foreground. Probably the best shots of that lighthouse I've ever taken.
After spending some time at the lighthouse, we went to Old Town. In Old Town we heard sea lions barking very loudly. We saw a group of folks on one of the piers, so we followed the crowds. I was after a few shots of sea lions, but that was only one of things going on in that location. We saw a guy in a wet suit on top of The Undersea Gardens building and then jump in the bay. While watching that guy, I walked right in front of a camera crew. I thought it was a local news station crew, but it was a crew filming for an episode of "Little People, Big World". I still didn't realize it until Amy Roloff, star of the show, walked past me. I stole a couple of cheap shots of her as she walked by with an entourage of people following after her.
A little while later, hubby and I were sitting at a little coffee shop nearby that area and Amy Roloff was right in front of the shop putting something into a car. She was no longer surrounded by others except one guy, I thought it might be her manager or something. Something came over me and I just got up and walked up to her and asked her if I could take her photo. She did do a slight hesitation, but then smiled and said, "Sure". She asked me if I wanted to be in the photo with her, but I declined. I so hate my photo taken :) So I took this shot of her and then spoke a few minutes with her about the filming of the show. She was very warm and friendly to me and I thanked her and went back into the coffee shop. The kid working said he heard she declined others that wanted photos, so I guess I caught her at the right time.
Thank you for those that stopped by yesterday to comment on my birthday dedication to my daughters. I was touched by your comments and words of wisdom. Blipppers are kind and compassionate people!
Thanks for stopping by.
