Oregon Coast Getaway

Mmm... the long weekend. Amore and adventure describes it all. I knew it would be a Top Memory for the year and I was right. The Oregon Coast was misty, mystic and practically magical. But it was a first in many ways for me, and so meaningful. I was glad to spend my Dad's birthday with him for the first time in way too many years. A wonderful night of family, manicotti, puzzles and wine in a beautiful ocean view living room filled with happiness and new beginnings... finally my multiple lives blending all in one... a sense of slight nervousness, the promise of a beautiful unknown future and sense of peace I can't begin to describe. Plus morning beach walks, fresh seaside clam chowder, and fish & chips from The Crazy Norwegian.

Not to mention out-of-this-world homemade German Chocolate Cake.
