Yes, this time we ARE going to the Oregon Coast!

This time we are going to the beach. We're leaving tomorrow morning and will be gone until Thursday night...just a brief respite from getting ready for winter. The Oregon Coast is only 1 1/2 hours from us, as are the mountains, and we've always enjoyed retreating to the coast and sometimes to the high desert on the East side of the mountains.

There was a brief tsunami advisory in effect for tonight along the coast, but nothing significant. Though this is a minor event here, it will serve as a reminder of the suffering of those in Pago Pago and elsewhere in Samoa following the earthquake that hit the area. They will be in our thoughts and prayers.

This is a photo from the deck of the motel where we stay in Lincoln City. I'll be back with some more photos and comments Friday or Saturday.
