Last Days of Summer at the Coast
I had the pleasure of attending a friend's birthday party in a house at the Bella Beach community this last Saturday. The house, named MargaritaVilla, was very well-appointed, with a convenient path to the beach right down the street. I was impressed by the nice layout of the neighborhood. All the houses are newer, but the construction is influenced by different architectural styles, so it doesn't look like a cookie-cutter resort neighborhood.
The Oregon coast is deceptively beautiful during the summer and early autumn. The weather is foul and gloomy for 9-10 months of the year, but the few days of summer are gorgeous enough to inspire all kinds of irrational behavior... like answering one of those shiny "For Sale" ads.
Cynicism aside, I enjoyed myself immensely this last weekend.
