The Watering Hole: August 18

The Oregon Coast is my happy place.  I love the smell of the air, the sound of the pounding surf, the feel of the cold air, the starving seagulls, and the thrill of seeing the occasional whale spout in the distance.

I stay at the Sylvia Beach Hotel, where there are no phones, no televisions, no radios, no clocks, and no computer access.  What they do have are thousands of books (in case you forget yours), hundreds of games and puzzles, lots of cushy chairs for reading, napping, or quiet conversation, and hot spiced wine at 10 p.m.

I’m spending Thanksgiving Week there again this year.  Is it November yet…?

Where is your happy place?
