    I met a big, healthy slug trying to eat fast food today.  I suggested to him that nature provided a much healthier array of food.  I don't think he believed me (probably a teenage slug) but I picked up the fast food litter and left him to consider other possibilities.  The ocean is so amazing!

      Perhaps only a east sider would give such consideration to coast side slugs :)

    Today I took a wonderful 2 mile walk in Oregon that met all of my goals.  It was cool, but dry. What a pleasure!

      Somehow disconcerting to know you are in the OR coast area at Beltane time and witnessing dry.  Please keep giving your love and taking notes!

    Wonderful place for mindfulness, rest and being outside; I took a walk to Boiler Bay in Oregon and had an amazing view of the ocean and cliffs.  The waves in constant motion are so powerful.  The earth is soooooo unbelievable - why are we destroying it?

    I drove my electric car from East Wenatchee to Hood River, Oregon today. We made it with 2 charge stops!  One charge costed a whole $14.85.  How much was your gas today?

      Will try to pull out my slip from gas fill-up today with 215 miles.  Probably 3 times this amount.  Hope you are safe in Depot Bay by now!!

    We had a very successful Earth Day Fair at Pybus Market.  The sun was shining, which was really good since I was in charge of the solar fountain. Once again, it was a big hit.  It's so fun to watch the children as they figure it out.  Some of them don't want to leave, they want to turn it on and off with their shadow.  GREAT FUN!

     Today I took a class called "Mindful Movement".  It uses brain power with movement to learn how to develope healthy movements to keep me moving throughout my life.

    I am making steps toward getting ready to go to the Oregon Coast in my electric car.  I have spent some time on the "plugged in" sites and have set up a plan. I am leaving Sunday afternoon. Thoughts and prayers welcomed for this adventure!
