Most of my favorite days begin with an abrupt change of plans.
Which is exactly how Favorite and I began our day yesterday (well, after the morning trip to the dog park and the purchase of the first iced latte of the season). We were on our way to church when I made a casual comment about how the day was so beautiful it made me want to drop everything and head to the coast. Favorite made a U-turn (legally, honest), and two hours later we were in Astoria. I love that man.
Evidence of our adventure:
Rule 1 when visiting Astoria, Oregon: Walk up to the Goonies house and take a picture looking as dorky as you can manage.Rule 2: Climb the Astoria Column. It’s a bit of a climb, sure, but man……the view!Gorgeous.
We also went the the Crab and Seafood Festival, but failed to take pictures. It wasn’t that exciting, anyhow. Shockingly little crab or seafood.
I hope your spring days are full of unexpected, spontaneous detours from responsible adult life… I hope you take to the highway with someone you love, roll down the windows, and soak up the sun.
