another nice day at the coast. it was a bit rainy but with some sun breaks from time to time. we spent a good part of the afternoon doing some beach combing and walking around the small downtown area. there was a nice little coffee shop and news stand that had a good selection of magazines and stationery. i was so surprised to see that they carried the wire that i had to pick up a copy. who knew that people in small coastal oregon towns like to read british magazines about experimental music? i’ve really tried to kick my magazine habit but i guess i broke down. i also picked up a little notebook where i started making a drawing of the gangs of sandpipers that we saw dotting the beach. maybe i’ll finish it and add it to this post at a later date.
