If my wishes came true, all of you would be here to enjoy the Oregon Coast. We’d walk the wide, nearly deserted beaches. We’d enjoy the scenery of the rugged coast. We’d watch waves crash over starfish and wonder why they never fall off. We hear the crunch of shells under our step. And, we'd see palm tree shaped seaweed sway in the wind. I wish you all could be here with Ed and me to take in the beauty of the Oregon Coast.
