Jeff's parents are visiting for a couple weeks and we have been living like vacationers in our little tourist town. We showed them low tide and high tide, went tide pooling in Port Orford and ate hot dogs with sweet mustard at the Langlois Market. We saw seals and I'm hoping they'll get to see some whales, too, before they go. We ate fresh fish on the water, and walked down to the beach at sunset. We've gone antiquing and get iced coffee in Old Town Bandon almost every day. And we take naps with books in the afternoons.
The backdrop of this new life has become almost normal, looking through these pictures I catch my breath as this is my here and now. It picked us, or was chosen for us. Maybe a whole lot of both.
