Oregon, the PNW Experience

Alright, two papers down today, one to go. I've been occupying some real-estate at my favorite coffee shop for three and a half hours now and am on a great caffeine-induced homework marathon. I have about two more weeks to go in this quarter of school and it has just become a bit hectic(waahhh). The end is in sight though!

Our trip to Oregon was great! Went to see the Pink Panther on Friday night(good if you like Steve Martin), then got into the car and headed to the coast on Saturday for some lunch at Mo's and a nice walk down the beach. Jake, Rachel's dog, had a great time hauling a stick out of the waves that was three times his length over and over and over again. We headed down the coast to Devil's Churn, a cool natural wonder. The ocean has pounded a four-hundred foot long inlet into the coast and now the waves crash and churn there until the water looks like cappucino foam. Then Rachel's parents teamed up that night to treat us to a great Salmon and Pesto feast. They make their own pesto and have a secret stash of it in their underground vault, it is powerful stuff! Sunday I just relaxed and tried to make some headway on my homework for the week(just finished reading Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, a WONDERFUL read).
