To spend quality time in at least one area of every state. Quality time means exploring the area; rest stops, gas stations, airports or train stations do not count. The goal is to explore the natural and cultural environments of these regions. Each location visited has a story, pictures for my amateur hobby addiction, and maybe a piece of jewelry/art.

Big Surprise, It is Raining in Oregon

I leave tomorrow for my quick excursion around the Oregon coast (well, really for work, but fun comes first)... just checked the weather to pack, and of course, it is raining.  I should have known better than to get my hopes up for a nice hike around the sand dunes, or the quick trip north to a view point for Mt St Helens.  Here's hoping that the rain isn't a downpour or create a mist.  I would still like to enjoy this outing.  The aquarium will be fine in the rain, and I know that I can kill hours in there, but I do not know if my friend will be as excited as I to watch an octopus or read the displays on tide pools.  Reading up on Seal Cave, it does not seem like there is a lot of activity in the winter, just them congregating in the cave - so that should be okay in the rain as well.  But there will not be a short hike in Astoria around the Lewis and Clark Historical Site if the weather does not cooperate.  And, I will not be able to take many noteworthy pictures... guess I will find out soon...

I will keep you posted.
