Wash the Winter Blues Away

I’ve heard rumors that there are people who enjoy winter weather, but personally I am skeptical that these people exist.  I think there should be some kind of law passed that says you have to leave your holiday lights on through the entire month of January, just for my own sanity.  After a month of gloomy January weather, I’m ready for some serious sunshine.  So when I found out late last Friday that it was going to be sunny and in the mid 50s – 60s on the Oregon coast, I began contemplating.  Combine that with the fact that not only did Alex and I have a rare entire weekend off together, but there was also a special running at our new favorite hotel on the beach (complete with ocean view and fireplace), and I knew that the cosmos must have aligned.  I went home and informed Alex of our new weekend plans.

Just under two hours away from our destination, I dusted off my sunglasses and prepared to enjoy the scenic drive to the coast.  I don’t even think I knew how much I needed this getaway until we arrived and felt the stress and doldrums wash away.  

For the next 24 hours it was all wave watching….

beach combing…

sunset watching…

bird feeding…

brunch eating…

tide pool exploring…

and lots of basking in the glorious sunshine!
