It's time for the our first camping trip of the season. The Oregon Coast is about a 90 minute drive for us. It's a site we both visited as kids and has become our tradition as the first camp out each season. We leave tomorrow and return on Monday. Family coming to stay with us Friday and Saturday nights. Weather should be calm (for the Coast) and mostly dry. Nights will be cool and damp but that doesn't stop us - we're NW natives! We should have some nice low tides for beach combing. Aspey, the amazing English Springer Spaniel will get plenty of exercise running the waves. Please send good thoughts all goes well. Our family's stress has been at an all time high lately (for LOTS of reasons) so we really need a few days of peace. The beach usually provides that solace - here's hoping she does it again. Can't wait to smell the salt air tomorrow.
