The last days of my time in Washington:
Saturday: My parents took Kari and me to the beach, so we can try some of the world’s best fish and chips (according to dad). I will admit they were really good and worth the drive. We ended up in Sea Side to check out the outlet stores. I didn’t get anything, but Kari and Dad both got shoes. We walked down the main street of Sea Side like we normally do. It’s changed a lot since I was there last, but it still has the traditional Sea Side feel. We had a good time. I feel bad for the parents, because I slept the whole way home. I’m a tired girl.

Sunday: I went with Kari (or Harmony) up to Camp Arrowhead for a little visit. I stayed the whole day and got to see old camp friends from yester year. It was fun being a councilor for a day, but I’m sure glad I got to go home and sleep in a nice bed away from the bugs. Camp sure has changed, but I think it changed in a good way. It’s small because they opened it at the last minute, but I think they will be able to build it back up. The title of this post is a quote I found in the Corn Crib (the craft building). I lived in this building my last summer there.

Monday: Mom drove me down to visit the grandparents. We visited Grandma and Grandpa A for a couple of hours and then made our way back to Oregon City to visit Grandma O. She went with mom and me to pick out a new bathing suit. I bought one of the only somewhat modest ones I could find, so it wasn’t too hard to pick one out. It was nice to visit with the grandparents. My one regret is that I didn’t get a chance to visit my favorite cousins and/or aunt. Luckily I will be home for two weeks at Christmas and will have plenty of time to visit.

Tuesday: Today! I have to clear out my room. Ewwww. My mom wants to turn it into a craft room, but all my stuff from college is in there. I need to go in there and start working on it soon. Booo. I leave for Cali tomorrow morning. I’m way excited to see Elizabeth. I haven’t seen here in over a year. I might also get to see other college roommates while I’m down there. I’m excited to see them and take a trip down memory lane. It’s been a long time.


  1. You visited Seaside? I am so jealous. I hope you ate some salt water taffy.

  2. You know, you have a former roommate living an hour away from you, yet you haven't come to see her. I'm insulted. No, I hate you FOREVER!

    Just kidding! ;P
