From the first moment I saw you, I fell in love. A tiny oasis by the bay, with thatched rooftops and ornamental windows in homes that overlook the glittering sea. The hiking trails lined with the foliage of wild blackberries beg me to make discoveries. Along rugged coastline with rocky outcroppings and tide pools full of the smallest wonders nature can create, there you are–beauty embodied.
Espresso at the port as you release your ships into the sea with pride, guiding them safely across the bar. Summer festivals and laughing children, warm days in the sand. Perfect little book shops and dinner overlooking the moonlit sea. Brookings, could there be anywhere else that calls so strongly to me?
(Brookings, Oregon is the favourite place for my children and I to vacation each year. If you haven’t been, you should. Here is a link to the webcam for the chamber of commerce.)
