tu as le don pour nous poster des photos de rêve, juste avec ce qu'il faut de sauvage et de beauté, une côte où les vagues se perdent, un voyage sur tes fantaisies poétiques.
A bientôt, John.

Barbara from Florida, United States

My shoes are off! I'm ready to run and splash along this beautiful coast of the PNW.
Your image has me there. Beautiful!!

When I was about 13 y.o. I spent the summer with my sister who lived in Seattle at the time. Ever since that trip I have wanted to return but with more experience of your beautiful coast. Strange I do not enjoy flat land and that is where I live.

18 Feb 2009 4:47pm

@Barbara: I was born in raised in Florida. Did my undergraduate work at Gainesville. (Go Gators!) Moved West in 1962 a couple years after grad school and have never left. Spent most of my working life in the Bay Area, but have also lived in Juneau, Sequim (N. Olympic Pen.), Coeur d'Alene, and Flagstaff; all beautiful areas. We really love Corvallis.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Great reply. I can understand not returning to FL. I was born and raised in Michigan, moved to Greece for a time, still needing adventure I followed a better half to Florida. I will always keep the adventurous part and journey to the West coast to visit someday. Thanks
