Forgetting the Taxman

Today we paid our 2015 taxes – ouch!

To quickly move past the pain of writing checks to Uncle Sam and the State of California, we hiked a lovely coastal trail in hopes of losing ourselves in more of this beautiful Oregon coast.


Thank You Fortuna


Over the weekend we relocated from Alfred A. Loeb State Park to Harris Beach State Campground, a quick 20 minute drive away.  Reservations are not accepted so I was a bit nervous taking a chance at this park, especially since we would be surrendering such a great spot – one we could have kept another seven days before exceeding the maximum stay limit.  Nevertheless we decided to risk it.

The picture above confirms that Fortuna (Roman Goddess of chance, luck and fate) must have been rooting for us, as we managed to snag this sweet ocean view site … on a Saturday morning no less!

Once settled, we took advantage of low tide, walking the beach with Lilly – who immediately began to frolic in the waves, something she tremendously enjoys and which always make us smile.

We’ve settled nicely into our Oregon state park campsite.  And, as evidenced by the picture above, there has been no complaining about the office views.  In fact, it will be a damn shame leaving this serene site when we move onwards to the next place.

But then again, this is Oregon and there is no shortage of spectacular.



Walking Lilly tonight I could not help but take a moment to appreciate the views and enjoy the sounds and smells of the Morro Bay harbor.
