Yesterday was the Official Start!
Of Summer, but it was also the start of something else. "The Get Ready for the Annual Visit to Oregon" day. We love love our mountain state to death, but there is something inside both me and my hubby that has us going back to the Oregon Coast each year. The call of the sea, the smell of the air, the taste of the crab! We need our fix....LOL For years, we have visited in various capacities: camped, RV'd, with kids, and now without kids. We have found a lovely condo to lease every year, right over the rocks and sea, that is without question the second prettiest place on this Earth! From the moment we walk thru that door, we are welcomed with 180 degree views of the ocean. The place itself is beautiful, outfitted in the nautical look we crave, a kitchen a gourmet would cherish (tho I am no gourmet cook...LOL) and the peace and quiet we so need in this crazy world. We are greeted by a bottle of wine (which we will partake of later in the hot tub or by the fireplace) and a sense that all we will need for the duration, is, each other, our jig saw puzzle, and the sea. As my husband said. "It can rain the whole time we are here, I don't care." This place releases us. We become artistic again, childlike, we find nothing as much fun, as looking for agates and glass and bits of shells. So, I better quit dreaming about it and get crackin'. There is alot to do. Now where did I put that puzzle? Kit
