Last week Mrs. Abstract and I visited Gearhart, a small village next to Seaside, Oregon with some friends one of which was celebrating her 80th birthday. We occupied a house situated on the bank of an estuary. Every morning I woke up early to glimpse the sunrise, stayed all day watching the high tide comes to the estuary. In the afternoon we watched the sunset.
There were many birds that came ove to the shallow pond left by the tide. It was a relaxed five days with clear and temperate weather. We told stories while sipping wines and eating home cooked meals.
