I COME TO THE SEA TO BREATHE
I am most in joy, most at peace, at the ocean, at sea, on a beach. Gimme the beach, any time, any season, any beach.
- •I have known and loved Cannon Beach, North Oregon Coast, since 1983 — and have spent time there during 24 summers with the same top friends.
- •Lewis & Clark trekked a long ways. And they saw a LOT, baby. They finally got to what is now Cannon Beach, home of Haystack Rock.
- •Upon reaching Cannon Beach, here's what Capt. William Clark wrote in his diary (in Jan 1806) as he gazed upon Haystack Rock: "From this point I beheld the grandest and most pleasing prospect which my eyes ever surveyed."
- •I come to the sea with my daughters, who also deeply love THE Rock.The sea and the rock even make them giddy.
- •My dear (& fab) sisters also bask in the sea with me.
- •I come to the sea to build castles.
- •And to put beach toes into perfect sand.
- •And to take perfect walks.With Shannon & Betsy.
- •And to read!
- •And to frolic in the water.(Though not so much in Oregon!)
- •And to read some more!
- •And to have beachy cocktails!Thanks, hon!
- •And to devour delicious seafood.
- •I come to the sea for sunsets, usually with cocktails, natch.
- •And to devour more seafood.
- •But mostly, I come to the sea to BREATHE!
- •(Ahh geez, I could go on and on and on).
