And on day seven we had a short (344 miles) drive to our final destination: Seaside, Oregon and my brother's house where the family convened at the beach! Wooooohoooooo! I can definitively say we were all ready to not be in the car for a few days by this point.
As usual, the pacific coast was cold, windy, and gray but beautiful. You sure don't want to swim in these freezing waters! We had a great time visiting with family, and my socks did creep along despite the little knitting time I had.
