Cape Lookout near Tillamook, Oregon! What a beautiful site! I cannot recommend it enough. We spent the mornings drinking tea and walking on the beach, the rest of the day reading and playing games, and the evenings drinking tea and walking on the beach. The cloud goddess was mad at us and covered the skies every night before the sunset, but it was lovely nevertheless.
I was very silly and forgot to put on sunscreen as we walked around Portland on Monday eating Brunch Box sandwiches and visiting Ground Kontrol arcade, then even sillier as we walked on the beaches every morning. Between the wind and the sun, my skin is bright red and peeling now. So I remind you about aloe. I had to buy some aloe vera gel from Safeway - Raymond said he was going to get on the blog and post anonymously about seeing Swift buying toiletries at a grocery store! How shocking! - and it has worked quite beautifully on my trashed skin. I'm still red and peeling, but I'm less red than I was before using it. I can't stress enough how much we love aloe vera around this house!
