Running Away to Seal Rock

It’s only 10 minutes south of my house, but Seal Rock is a great place to get away. Not long ago, I took my camera and notebook there, joining the tourists as if I were one of them. For a little while, I was on vacation. I wrote, I took pictures, I walked on the beach. It was cloudy but warm, and the waves lapped gently over the tidepools and against the sand.

After my beach walk, I went to lunch at Seal Rock’s Japanese restaurant, Yuzen. With soft music playing, I sat at a window seat eating miso and sushi and thought again about how lucky I am to live here.

    I have been reading your posts for some time now and they make me happy, bringing great memories of a year with my Dad exploring the beauty of Oregon. How I love it out there!
