It has been an exceptionally beautiful week here in Pacific City, Oregon. Lots of sunshine and very little wind...really incredible weather, especially for January. There have been surfers enjoying the waves every day, along with a few paddle boarders, a couple of kayakers, and even one crazy person swimming...well, more like squealing and flailing like he was on fire!
I've enjoyed the quiet early mornings watching the world wake up, one dog beach walker at a time, while I wake up myself with my coffee on the deck or tucked in by the fireplace reading the paper. I managed to get a little bit of computer work done, but definitely spent more time staring at the waves than at the computer screen. It's mesmerizing, to be sure.
I've had some fun with my photography...even daring myself out to the very edge of Cape Kiwanda to capture a few images of the crashing waves below! I've certainly LOVED the sunsets! I've walked miles and miles of beach, including up and down the dunes several times, which is no small feat! And I got to spend a beautiful day at Indian Beach thinking about my parents and how much I miss them in my day to day life. I am so excited to be a grandparent (a "Nana")...it reminds me how much I would've liked my girls to have known my parents more, longer...they were really amazing people. So, I hope I am around a long, long time...to enjoy days like these...and days with my kids, and their kids...and maybe even their kids?!
Heading home tomorrow...excited to see my hubby at the airport!
