Nat and I were pretty set on taking my sister to Indian Beach while she was visiting, but the road has been closed since mid-November due to storm damage. Luckily, we were able to park at Ecola Point and hike to Indian Beach from there. It was a new hike for us and it was lovely, but the tide was so high that there was no beach to walk on! So we walked on the rocks and enjoyed the trees and the solitude, then went to Astoria for coffee and beers and dinner.
The new year is off to an eventful start; the weather’s been nuts with some snow and freezing rain and Nat’s at his first day of his new job today. During all the time he was off the past two months, he was able to finish this video of our move from Kansas (to Colorado) to Oregon. I think I’ve watched it a dozen times :’)
