in case the weather is bad, and kites and plastic buckets and shovels if the weather is good, because we are taking off for a week’s vacation to the Oregon coast. If we’re lucky, we’ll spot the gray whales migrating from Mexico to Alaska for the summer.
I haven’t seen the Pacific Ocean since I was a girl. I told my Dad I’m afraid it won’t be as big as I remember it; he said it’s bigger. As an adult, he said, I’ll be able to see farther, and appreciate it more. I hope he’s right.
In any case, while I’m away, you might take a virtual vacation, by visiting some of my favorite far-away bloggers. Christina writes about life in Austria at Prince Vince Meets the World; Nelba gives us a taste of life in South Africa at Chocolachillie; Suzanne is in Japan, writing Gaijin Mama; Shelley writes Shamptons from her home in Sydney, Australia; Jo writes Sheena Time from Australia, too; and Ramblings of the Bearded One comes to us from Kim in Scotland.
And now, we’re off!
