The past couple of months have been a constant flurry of chores and activity. I feel like a break.
One of the things I loved about being at the lighthouse this summer was that it was completely off the communications grid. No phone, no email, no internet, no problem. I carried my phone with me for use as a camera or as a timepiece, but I didn’t miss the pings and croaks of incoming texts or telemarketer’s phone calls.
I can’t get to Cape Decision at the moment but I can still unplug. I’m heading to the Cascadia Surfrider Summit this weekend at Lake Crescent, then driving on out to the Hoh, to get lost for a few days. When I come back, the task list will get spun up again and between planning for the Tacoma Shoreline Survey, preparing to host Green Drinks in November and completing grant applications, there will be no chance to get off the grid again for a while.
Which is why I’m going now.
