Hello from Newport, Oregon!
We have been travelling up and down the coast for the last few days.
Next week, weather permitting, will carry on up the road to Seaside, Oregon where the Lady spent her summers when a kidlet.
We are so happy & peaceful, it is truly remarkable.
Something about being close to the Ocean; the constant rockin’ motion, the dense damp energy, it envigorates & calms simultaneously.
No wonder scientists figure folks is happiest who live by the Sea.
The Lady been introducing us to all sorts of businesses & folks – we got interviews set up for the blog – lovely people, fascinatin’ stories.
She’s also started a series of Oregon Scenic Postcards reminiscent of the hand colored ones from the 20’s to 40’s.
Examples of which you can see above & below.
This is just photo heaven for her & we all tickled by her delight.
Tonight is Max’s birthday. He is 80 plus 3. We’ re neck in neck at the life game. Or at least I think we are.
In the beginning I added years on to appear more mature.
Then I started subtracting. Like mad.
I confused myself.
I’m either VERY old or youngish & in horrible shape.
Anyway, we going to make a celebration for him.
The Lady gonna cook.
One thing we have discovered, everywhere folks is hurting & everywhere there is generosity.
Our faith in the future is being restored.
We have met so many giving, loving people, most of whom have little by way of material treasure, but possess an abundance of kindness.
We thank our lucky stars we are where we are.
Hope all is well in your World!
