Astoria Trip

Astoria-Megler Bridge, originally uploaded by Artnchicken.
My creative battery needs, so very desperately, to be charged. So I did what any Oregonian would do. I took an emergency road trip to the coast. I loaded up on snacks at the gas station where I also added 10-30w Pennzoil to my beloved Subaru. Subaru's need snacks too.
I am currently listening to the sound of docked boats gently swaying in the wind here in Astoria. It's 2:00 a.m. and I can't seem to sleep! My creative battery is almost charged. It was beautiful here at the coast today-oops I mean yesterday! Perfect 70 degree weather (maybe 68), and my little guy loved the adventure. Although, I think I heard him groan and saw him roll his eyes when I attempted to sing the ABC's on the road. Does a four year old roll his/her eyes? Maybe I'm being a little dramatic. Micah had fun hanging out with his Tio Jesse (who happens to be working here).
Back to the grind in 6 hours.
Before we go, I must grab a hot java and walk the cool beach again at sunrise.
