I had the most amazing weekend traveling with my hubby and our four year old. It was short, but very refreshing. We started our short road trip by slowly meandering to Portland, Oregon Friday night. In the morning we got up and spent a few hours at the Saturday Market ... it was a blast. Holy crap there are some truly talented people out there. Skimming over the booths made me envious. Damn, I wish I was that creative. After trying a few of the delicacies, we left for the coast.
The drive was beyond superb; greenery curtaining the winding road, and just letting little peeks of the ocean to tease us with a glimpse. Breathtaking. We made sure to stop at a few beach points just long enough to get our toes wet and shoes loaded with sand ( oh and a few sea shells of course).
Everything seems to disappear when you stare out at the vast water. You forget about your day jobs, or the day-to-day life struggles. It just ... wipes it all clear. It's my opinion we all need to get away every weekend. It puts us in reset mode. Gets us back to nature and the big picture.
I have decided ... I am definitely not one of those people who can't wait to get home. I'm that one scheming my next trip before we even start heading back. Maybe soon, I will be hitting the road and sharing my experiences ... daily. Hey, one can dream. Until then... get out and play.
