We headed out to Seaside and Cannon Beach, about a 90 minute drive. A beautiful ride through the forest to get there, we had a quick bite at The Crabby Oyster (clam chowder was lumpy and was worse tasting than campbell's, the shrimp on a skewer were OK, but not worth the $15 price tag, and even worse was the crab cake melt, which not only looked disgusting, but didn't taste that good either).
The coast was beautiful. We spent a few hours walking the seaside beach and then decided to visit Cannon Beach, we were hoping to find some rocks/pools of water, but it was just another beautiful beach.
We walked, we skipped sand dollars into the water, we sat in the sand. The water was too cold to go in for a swim, but of course we went in up to our knees. It was such a relaxing day, I felt a million miles away from all the stress.
Mountain Man had dinner plans that evening, mine were cancelled, so we ended our trip and headed back.
The following day we had a work function and afterwards we got drunk again and had an amazing night together. When it came to saying goodbye..I wanted more time with him, I felt like were just getting into a much better grove than previous times, and I wanted it to continue a few more days. The goodbye was simple, just a quick kiss, no I hope to see you soon, no I'll miss you, no I look forward to next time. Just...have a safe trip home. Muah.
Then he left and I continued to work/sight see on my own.
