1st Day of 2017

2017 started out awesome. The weather was incredible. We got to play on the beach, run with Mac and watched the Manzanita Polar Bear Plunge. We left at 3:00 and stopped at Ecola park. GORGEOUS. That is one magical place. The drive home was a bit slick, so it took at long time. We decided to stop in North Plains for dinner. I hadn't been in that town since my brother died (on January 3rd, 2001) and memories of him and driving to Pumpkin Ridge hit me hard. A lump formed in my throat. We walked into the restaurant and then I noticed it.....once of his favorite songs - Free Falling by Tom Petty - playing on the radio. I think my baby brother was sending me a message.
