Greetings from beautiful Depoe Bay, Oregon
We have settled in a little place I call the House at Pirate Cove.
Depot Bay is a little fishin’ town on the central coast between Newport to the south & Lincoln City to the north.
It boasts of the world’s smallest harbor.
This little town of 1500 folks began life as a land allottment to a Siletz gentleman, Charles De Poe or Depot, nobody seems to know.
He was gifted by the Dawes Act in 1894 which divided up land taken from the Native peoples & gave it back to the lucky few.
It is set in a portion of Heaven on Earth.
The Natural Beauty is so overwhelming when around it, if you got any soul at all, you cannot see anything else.
I suppose some folks get to taking it for granted after a time.
But we never will again.
The other day, we was standing at the sea wall here in town.
The Lady was taking snaps.
Indigo, in his stroller, just speechless with amazement.
Big Her Mamma Ocean is humbling.
She is Grace, Joy & Fury Incarnate.
To contemplate Her vastness, depth, and teeming, bounty of Life is to realize the Whole of Creation.
She exemplifies to me the unifying principle between Einstein & quantum physics.
Anyway, we was all there taking in a sunset where the Sun was bigger than I ever saw it.
His massive cloak of cloud streaked with reds & yellows.
We suddenly realized we never had to leave.
It struck us both profound.
We was silent in joy.
We have met some incredible people here and you will meet them in these pages.
We been going up & down the coast & will head North towards Cannon Beach & Seaside the next fine day.
We are in the process of developing sea – legs, hahaha.
Travel here can be slick, especially after years of walking dry & hard desert flooring.
We ain’t felt the ground give like sponge beneath our feet so long we had forgotten.
There’s alot of bump to this land.
This is a sign you see in Oregon a lot.
The Lady figured out got take the hills up like a hiker & come down like a dancer.
Me & our new friend Max prefer a more solid ground
Especially after I took a little tumble a few days back.
Right now, we getting our duds on to go to the Karaoke with our pal Rebecca!
I never done that before!
What fun to enjoy others singing & sing myself again!
I hope they got smokey blues on the machine.
I’m in a mood to slip & slide.
