I am going to Portland, Oregon in August. There's a conference I am attending in mid-August, and I would like to spend some time before and/or
afterwards to visit the sea.
I was to travel with my sweetheart, but he recently passed away, and now I face the daunting and sad task of traveling alone to a place we had plans
to go together to. Forgive me, as I'm inconsolable at the moment as I type this.
I am not a big fan of cities, and although I will be downtown for the conference, I don't wish to spend my extra days there, but want to drive to the
ocean. All I want to do is see and experience beautiful places that are nearby, nature, vistas, beauty.
I am spiritual, am interested in Native American sacred sites, meditation, walks, organic food.
First, if you have ideas or suggestions on what to see/do or avoid, please let me know. What are the natural, outdoor must see's? What are the
"power places" from a mystical perspective? What might just be fun and cheer me up there?
Second, if there are any ATSers in the area there that would like to meet for a cup of coffee, wine or organic meal, it would be a welcome respite and
nice. I know that I will miss my sweetheart all the more when I go, as we were looking forward to going together.
