Planning the 2008 vacation, we have considered the Northwest. This would include the Oregon coastline, Washington and possibly Canada.
In September 2007, work led me to Washington where I took the weekend and toured the Olympic Peninsula and found myself here at Crescent Bay alone one evening. Wandering along the shore taking a trail up along the cliffs, I discovered a most serene point and sat back on some logs propping my feet up after a long drive from Seattle and up to Hurricane Ridge leaving the corporate world behind. Mobile phone service and text messaging were limited. The air was cold though and I had not arranged for lodging. Fortunately, a room was available in Port Angeles on that Friday night. A bottle of 2004 Nebbiolo di Klipsun, a hot bubble bath, and music by David Lanz closed the chapter on this very full day.
