I opened up my Atlantic newsfeed this morning and what did I see but this headline:
The Gem of the Pacific Northwest: A Visual Ode to Oregon’s Seashore
It’s a lovely 5:45 video consisting of a series of vignettes along the north and central Oregon coast. Ah, the mist…the firs and pines, spruces and hemlocks…the quality of light…every sight and sound is so familiar. Hey, those kids are at Beverly Beach State Park! I used to live literally up the hill. And the scenes of the Newport waterfront murals at the end might have made me blur a little bit.
Sometimes being away from Oregon is harder than others. This video was a definite dose of homesickness this morning. (I can’t embed it, but the link will take you there.)
It’s been two years since my last visit. I think I need an Oregon fix.
