The Peace Within

I took this photo at Camp 18. It's on the way to Seaside, Oregon, and it's an old lumber camp that they've turned into a restaurant. It's the place where we went for dinner on the boys last day here this summer after a wonderful day at Seaside.

Seaside is a town that I love. From my first trip there, I noticed that the air there has the ability to heal me. The main street in Seaside is full of very busy shops, and normally, it's amazingly crowded. In any other place, that type of scenario would exhaust me. I don't like shopping, and I don't like crowds. But in Seaside, it's all ok. At the end of that long walk down the busy street is the ocean.

No amazing sites in the ocean off the coast of Seaside. No jutting rocks, nothing spectacular. Just a flat horizon. But it's beautiful. Down the road a bit to Cannon Beach... that's another story. There's Hug Point, and Haystack rock... man, Oregon is beautiful!

I am hoping for a trip to Seaside in the near future. In the meantime, I will make that peace within that I feel when I am there. Now to my meditation.

I hope that you can find the peace within today. It's there... we just have to embrace it!

Sounds gorgeous! I can't wait to take that walk with you and have you show me everything that Oregon has to offer! Someday...
