And the weather turns again, from fog, showers and cold wind to sun and light breezes.  With it, we begin to think about home.  It is funny to me how we know when a trip is over.  Is it because the schedule calls for us to return tomorrow?  Or are we done here, for now?

From Ecola State Park

We have no cooking facilities where we are staying, so we eat out each meal.  We’ve found a few places we like and a few we don’t.  Some of the places here on the beach seem to have been here forever, still serving the same food they did in the 1950s and 60s.  Others are newer kinds of food, better suited to current tastes.  They coexist in this small place.

Andrea enjoying the sun

Today after lunch we drove out to Ecola State Park to enjoy the sun and the view and the fresh air blowing in from the sea.  And the peace.

  1. Spectacular pictures!!! You are right about the restaurants!! The last time I was at the coast I spent in Seaside for Beach Volleyball. This occurs the 2nd weekend in August and starts with 750 Volleyball courts on the beach and as eliminations occur they remove courts. Folks come from all over the world to play and it is the biggest tournament of its kind in the world! I will look forward to seeing you when you get back home…one of these days!!!
