In the fall, I committed to take a long weekend trip to the coast once a month during the four (terrible) months of winter solely to photograph bunnies for my project. This was the first one, back in November. The Airbnb where we stayed was on the third floor, and with COVID we bring all our own food to cook so we don’t have to buy groceries or even takeout (I think this was during’s Oregon’s two-week freeze), so anyway, it was *many* trips from the car and up + down the stairs. Other than that, though, I really liked our place and we had a pretty wonderful weekend.

We had a balcony with a view of the ocean so we spent a lot of time out there. We watched Willy Wonka and Watership Down and painted our paint-by-number and saw the elk a few times, and I read Mary Oliver and went out every few hours to look for bunnies (we could actually almost see “Bunny Hill” from our windows). We walked on the (very windy) beach, and mostly managed to avoid the rain. It was really stormy our first night there, and we were sleeping upstairs and all I could think about was how I would die in the earthquake or I would never make it out of our place and down all the stairs to evacuate since it was on the edge of the inundation zone. On our last morning, we chased sea foam and walked on grassy hills at Chapman Beach.

The leaves in the backyard were really beautiful this fall. Super red on one side of the yard and bright orange + yellow on the other, which we hadn’t really seen before.
