So, with November here, we are approaching 8 months as coast kids. Eight months of living in a small town of a little over 8000 people on the Oregon Coast
Day to day, working, running errands and just doing your everyday tasks, sometimes its easy fo forget things are different here. But then there are days like today that remind you… Continue reading “Loving a small town!”
Just a short quick post here. Lately I have been talking a lot about the fall weather here on the coast and how nice it has been
Shoot I haven’t even had to bust out the rain jacket. Well, that is until last night Continue reading “Fall has hit!”
As we all know, the reason Michelle and I were able to move here to the coast is because the Mighty P let us telecommute from here. My normal work attire now is shorts, t-shirt and no shoes or sock.
However, the expectation when we moved here was that we would need to come back from time to time and work in the office. This week was a whirlwind trip for me. The drive up was uneventful, and the time in the office productive. My boss also convinced me to finally let him take me out for my 5th anniversary lunch. (My second 5th anniversary.)
We went to Red Robin! YUM!!!
But it was the drive home, that will be remembered. Continue reading “A drive to remember”
Ladies and gents I am getting spoiled! The weather has been nothing but amazing this entire month. (Funny, the one real rain we had, Michelle and I were in Portland at the zoo!) Aside from those days, October has looked like this

So 6 months, damn almost 7 now, we moved to the Oregon Coast. In that time I have come to think of myself and as beach walking, wine drinking, coast cycling neighborhood walking nature spotting whale watching member of the Beaver State. (hehhehheh he said Beaver!)
But I was still sporting the Washington State Driver’s license. With the midterm elections coming up next month, we needed to register to vote. Here in Oregon, that means you get an Oregon License.

Today was an exciting day. Michelle and I finally made time to get the DMV this morning. We walked out, eventually, with Oregon State Driver’s licenses! What does eventually mean? I didn’t know I needed to bring a birth certificate or passport with me!
In Washington, there is no proof of citizenship, but Oregon is different. A second after lunch trip meant I finally got mine!
It was a night to celebrate Continue reading “We will never know the answer….”
So there I was, walking the beach in the fog and drizzle.
Michelle and I had recently gotten home from a long weekend in Portland, and I just felt the need to walk the beach. After the sirens, yelling, horns, smells, protest chants and not so great smells, I needed a beach walk.
The fog was in, it was drizzling, but not all that windy. So all in all It was a good night to walk.
Who knew I would coin a new phrase… Continue reading “Islands of life”
