travel lust

Jun 28, 2008 | Life in Progress

this shot was taken a couple of years ago – you can barely see me, but i’m there on the left with my down jacket (i call it my puff daddy jacket) tied around my waist. i’m looking over a cliff where down below rests a perfect little cove of a beach, a favorite surfing spot for the local oregonians, including john. we spent a lot of time here, and i miss it terribly. this is this oregon coast. magical. exquisitely gorgeous. moody and mysterious. i’m heading back to this area for a bit of a vacation – a gathering with some dear women in a few weeks, and i can barely wait.

hope you all have some some summer adventures, even if local (sometimes those are the best vacations, no?) up your sleeves. would love to know where you’re heading…or maybe your dream of all dreams of places to go (mine would be back to italy or new zealand!).

today is the last day of the giveaway. enter a comment to enter to win. this has been so much fun – thank you again for all the sharing and kindness. i’ve so enjoyed getting a peak inside your lives this week. thursday’s winner is jen lee! jen, get in touch with me and i’ll have your print out to you soon!

Sending much love,

    vacation? hmmmmmmmm…..idk…
    i am hoping for a little trip to nashville, tn
    to visit friends…but, who knows? this summer
    seems rather busy with my new job…director
    of children’s ministries at our church…all the while
    trying to find time to squeeze in some art time.
    but – summer is always sweet to me…and it’s my 21st wedding anniversary on july 4th! so – that usually means we do something fun for a day or two…nothing planned yet…but – i do rather like the gypsy life. 😉
    hope that you enjoy your oregon vacation. that is somewhere that would be fun to visit someday.

    My husband and I don’t travel too very much, as we live in the most beautiful place in the world. we do have a big horse pack trip planned for 14 days in the Bob Marshall Wilderness- I can’t wait to be with just my love and my horses!

    Big fun in Big Sky country.

    Thanks for the joy you bring to me everyday, Kelly. your art and your insights brighten my life!

    Just this weekend I travelled north to Anacortes WA. I swear that sleeping on an island brings you more vivid dreams!
    And in two short weeks time I’ll be spending a week in my favoritest of spots on the Oregon Coast – Yachats!

    I’m going to Scotland for 2 weeks in August for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I shall be working there as a Deputy Stage Manager for my friend’s musical and it’s going to be wicked. Can’t wait to immerse myself in all the performance stuff! 🙂

    I used to have a penpal in Portland Oregon so it has a special place in my heart. I have received many a beautiful postcard from there!
