this afternoon we drove out to astoria for the wedding of some friends. it has been years since we last made it out there. it’s funny that in the almost 10 years that i’ve lived in portland, this is the first year that i’ve really enjoyed the mountain (at least in a snowy season) and now this was the second weekend in a row that we’ve been out to the oregon coast when that is usually just an annual event. maybe 2009 is actually the year of doing more things locally rather than taking trips to other states/countries?.. i hope it’s true to a certain degree, but we still want to plan a larger vacation at some point. it seems like everyone i know has either just returned from a trip or has travel plans in the works.
we better get planning.
