Welcome to July 10 on 10!

It’s time to share another 10 on 10 with you, which doesn’t seem possible. Summer is going by way too fast.
If you happen to be new here, 10 on 10 is a monthly photo challenge to shoot 10 photos over (roughly) 10 hours, on the 10th of the month – a pattern which I take great liberties with 😉

10 on 10 photo challenge - beach at Chinook Winds Lincoln City Oregon

My 10 on 10 started at the Oregon Coast. Mr. Awesome had work related things happening in Lincoln City, and I got to go along! Even though it’s July, weather at the coast is always a crap-shoot. Today was no different. The sun was quickly driven away by another burst of showers.

10 on 10 photo project - kinesio tape for knee

My knee is getting a lot of attention.
My physical therapist sent me home with this funky tape job on my post-surgery knee. My knee is still too swollen to wear pants, which means my shorts and skirts show this off quite well. I had a lot of stares, and was stopped several times by people who thought it was a tribal tattoo and wanted to know what it meant. Weird, but true.

10 on 10 photo challenge - geocaching bench of names Lincoln City Oregon

Geocaching is one of our favorite activities, and this trip worked out to be special. We were about to hit our 300th find, and were looking for the perfect cache to mark the occasion. We found this geocache, The Bench of Names, which is number 10 on the Oregon list of Favorite Geocaches, and they had 299 favorite points. See where I’m going here? 😉 So for our 300th find, we bestowed a favorite point on this cache to get them to 300 Favorites! I love it when a plan comes together 🙂

10 on 10 photo project - geocaching water cache bench of names

Behind the bench is a 2-inch tube about 3 feet long with the geocache laying at the bottom (see that little skull?). There’s a trick to getting it out 😉

10 on 10 photo project - Pig'n Pancake Lincoln City Oregon

Time for breakfast before we head back home.

10 on 10 photo challenge - rainy drive vanduzer corridor oregon

The drive home was wet.

10 on 10 photo project - DIY greenhouse polycarbonate panels

We stopped in town to get more supplies for our latest project. Twelve foot tin, and polycarbonate panels for a greenhouse.

10 on 10 photo challenge - garden corn six feet tall by 4th of July

Once we arrived home we went out to check on the garden and see if anything was amiss. Mr. Awesome stands six feet tall, and the corn is well over his head. I think we have achieved “knee-high by the 4th of July”!

10 on 10 photo project - baby watermelon home garden

Baby watermelon!!!

10 on 10 photo challenge - willamette raspberries home garden

The red raspberries are nearly finished fruiting, so eating a few handfuls every time I go outside is practically a necessity.

And with that, another 10 on 10 is in the books. 10 on 10 is the most achievable photo challenge I’ve encountered, so please consider joining me next month.

Until next time,
play hard, and have fun,
