The Best Vacation Ever!!

THE Birthday Month was coming up (see the March in March Matron) and the 11 year old and I decided to go to Brookings Oregon.  I underestimated the drive and after finding a great diner, a Bate’s Family type motel and driving through “a whole lot o' nothin' ” we turned south instead of north and went to Crescent City California.

The redwoods were amazing.  We found a great little motel right on the water inlet.  The 11 year old played in the sand and I found a fabulous thrift store.  After rummaging through boxes of stuff, I had piled up what I thought was $200 worth of old books, buttons and dishes.  It turned out to be just over $25.  Thank you The Purple Cat!!  We finished the day off at a wonderful sandwich shop and sat out on the little deck, watching the lights on the water, the kid and I wrapped in a big quilt.  It was perfect!  Perfect until 4 a.m. when the local Sherriff pounded on the motel door.  The city was evacuating with the Tsunami warning.  We found our way out after several wrong turns, two helpful brothers, a big truck and a winch.  (Don’t ask!) Leave it to me to go on a Tsunami vacation.

Sounds lovely, except for the tsunami and all.
