Car Camping or Experimenting With Homelessness

I can share these pictures now that it’s over.  This is the first time I have ever planned to day camp in my car.  I call it day camping since I was working at night and sleeping in the day, but I was glad to enjoy the sound of the surf and the walks on the beach in one of the many day use parks with a bathroom.  After the first day I had a bit of a headache so washing my hair in the cold faucet water was the perfect remedy.  I was relieved to not have to deal with the hotel, and over all I slept really well.  On the flip side of that I’m glad that this was a chosen adventure and that we have a sticks and bricks home. 

    Yesterday afternoon before work I took my post car sleep stroll enjoying the cool very soft sand on my feet.  Feeling contemplative I realized that this was the last time in a long time that I would feel the Oregon beach sand between my toes and revel in the sound of it’s surf and feel it’s reviving breeze.  Pacific coast you are amazing! Although am excited to see and experience the Atlantic coast, I will be missing you the whole time. 
 I had to make one last stop at the Gluten Free place for a pineapple upside down cake.  I saved it for morning.  Hannah picked it out for me for surviving my first shift so I thought it suiting to celebrate the completion of my last shift of this assignment.
