A Decision


So, a decision has been made. The week after I finish my first year of teaching, I will be going solo to Oregon for four nights. Oregon certainly wasn't my first thought when I began planning my escape, but a very cheap ticket and a look at pictures of the coastline convinced me otherwise. Additionally, I have never seen the West Coast and I have some unexplained aversion to California. And to top it off, I found a cooking class for one of the days and a nearby winery. So beach, books, wine, and good food - sounds perfect to me!

hexe - you are going to love Oregon! P has never been and we were even thinking about driving down that way this summer before hitting California..

Just be aware of the rain, but I'm sure you'll love the change. And it could get cold at night even if it is warm in the day because you get the ocean breeze...

And yes that area will be that beautiful. :)

Visiting a winery sounds awesome!

E.T. I thought about the rain but I have no schedule, nothing that must be done, so if it rains then I curl up with a book and some wine. I can't wait for the cold nights! Hope you and P get to visit soon!

We lived in Oregon for almost 3 years... the coastline is beautiful. We used to stay at some little bungalow near haystack rock (which, if you ask me, looks nothing like a haystack). The tiny towns are great too, and be sure to leave room in your suitcase for all good deals at the addidas outlet out there. Have a blast...
