Where I stayed
The saddest secret of the road is knowing that I'll move on and that you'll move on, too. In a flash, all the laughter and stories and good times are behind you once again, and it's time to go. It's an obvious life allegory, but it's not something we like to learn.
I said to Todd today, with laughter in my voice and tears in my eyes, how funny it is to watch attachment rise and then fall away - first in Vancouver, then Portland, now again in the coastal seaside resort town of Seaside, Oregon
Seaside was fine, with its touristy shops and beachside resorts, and there were plenty of activities we could have done to keep ourselves busy - kayaking, hiking, biking, shopping, dining, surfing lessons. But it was the people here that made the place, and I'll miss them. So, to the gang at the Seaside Hostel - Benji, Eric, Ben, the wacky fun-loving Christian karaoke sisters, the guy from Portland, the Therapy girls from Vancouver, and the vet with the van who had never cooked spaghetti before - wishing you well on your journeys.
