so long…..

It’s about time to say good-bye to the beach. Too soon. It alway takes me a few days to unwind and settle in – which at this point is about when we have to go.

We spent some time at the beach earlier this afternoon, and I only wish I could post the video of Sunny attacking the huge kite. 
Yesterday I made the trip to Seaside, about 45 miles south of here. It  didn’t take nearly as long as I thought to get there. I had lunch with Kirsten, and got to see Olivia for just a moment ( eighth – graders running around thinking they’te all grown up — so cute ) Tuesday she (Olivia ) is leaving for a ten day trip to Costa Rica for a Spanish immersion trip. How exciting – and how nerve wracking for her folks. 
From there I went into Astoria to find a fabric shop ( not for me – for a gift ), and on the way I detoured to the Column. And climbed it, since I was there. Here is a couple of pics that I took:   from the bottom,    and  from the top:

Damn, I can’t wait to move. Or, be all moved in.
