Living La Vida Yachats

So, I wrote this long post detailing my adventures at the beach this weekend, but I thought maybe I could succinctly summarize it thusly:
  1. Wake, without benefit of alarm clock, at dawn
  2. Walk on the deserted beach at low tide
  3. Morning Prayer
  4. Breakfast
  5. Shower/dress
  6. Walk into town for coffee/groceries
  7. Read/study
  8. Noonday prayer
  9. Lunch
  10. Read/study
  11. Long nap
  12. Beach walk
  13. Evening prayer
  14. Dinner
  15. Light fire, open wine bottle
  16. Read/study
  17. Compline
  18. Rinse (in the jacuzzi tub), sleep/repeat
And now, a few photographs:

I don't know what this flower is, but looks oddly tropical to me.

The view from my hotel room.

Sunrise on the beach.

Sand Dollars can be friggin' huge.

Or teensy-weensy.

The Saturday morning storm.

Followed by evening sunshine, which turned the sea into a gleaming silver mirror.

You left out phallic.

I love your sand dollar photos.

And the flower? I know what it is. Are you ready? You sure? It's called Red Hot Poker. Now stop laughing like an 11-year-old.

You are making me miss the Oregon coast. :)

What is #17?

Andy said...

It's the "bedtime" prayer in the Anglo-Catholic Daily Office tradition.

The flower is also (probably more commonly, given Puritanical Americanism ;) ) called the Indian Paintbrush.

Looks and sounds like a great trip :).

No...Indian paintbrush is something else. Smaller and more delicate.
