A Slower Pace

Once upon a time, seems like maybe the pace of life was a little slower. Maybe people weren't in such a hurry to get somewhere. Maybe the roads they took meandered a bit, and maybe driving from one town to another meant the road took you right through the center of every town in between.

Highway 101 is like that. It can be annoying, driving along at 70, then you see a sign saying that there's a 20 mph speed zone coming up with a traffic signal. The speed you drive is determined by whomever happens to be in front of you.

You don't get from one place to another as fast, but you get to see what each little community along the way is like. Its more personal.

We love the Oregon coast. We took our time today, when we got to Cannon Beach it was 7 pm. The kids went out on the beach and played unti dark, which doesn't happen here until 10 pm.

The sunset was breathtaking. Tonight we sleep to the sound of the ocean.
