I Used To Live There.
Its kinda depressing. I have been living on the coast (Newport area) for the last year and a half or so. recently I had a relationship end and have had to leave one of my favorite places to be. eventually I plan on going back. I love the Oregon coast, the smells can be a little much but if you learn the local ecology it all makes sense. I used to lay in my bed late at night and listen to the sea lions barking in the bay. Everytime i heard the sea lions or saw the waves I was in awe ... i could help but say it out loud, even when i was alone ... "I live here". It was an amazing experience. I hope that one day I can go back to live there again. I am only going to be living 2 hours away and plan on making frequent trips. I cant wait to take certain friends there with me, I think a few of them really need the trip.
