When we were offered a free stay at a client's beach house, we picked a weekend, packed our bags, and made the 2 and a half hour drive to a sleepy little town on the Oregon coast called Gearhart. The weather? We scored. :) It was 63 degrees when we drove out onto the beach. Amazing.The tide was out, so we strolled along picking up shells and sand dollars while chatting and being goofy and capturing it all with Dan's smart phone camera. There is not much more I enjoy than staring into the horizon as the sun sets listening to the waves and feeling the coolness of the breeze. The beauty of creation and the artistry of God evident in the colors of the sunset, the majesty of seagulls soaring overhead, the endless miles of sand etched by wind and water... Sigh.
Saturday wasn't quite as nice weather-wise, but we still had a great time (I shared about that here). On Sunday morning we packed and drove home for church in pouring rain...it was 32 degrees when we arrived back in Vancouver, and thankfully, it wasn't snowing. What a contrast!
