Back again?

After living as a happy little family in NC for three months my father was sent on a seconed Float
 Me and my Ma mére moved once again across the U.S. to live with her parents.
Little me continued to grow

Yes, that is me eating a head of lettuce.

I was a climber! Don't you just love the great van in the background?!

We would continue to live here for another 6 months while my daddy was away.

Across the country the went.

After my father came home from the first float, he came and got me and my mother and we moved from one coast to another.
We went to Jacksonville North Carolina where we settled into basic normal family life.

As you can see my dad didn't like me at all ;)

For my second 3 months we lived in NC.
Then my dad was called away again to another float.
Then it was back to Oregon.

She was born by the sea.

The first place I ever lived was Sixes Oregon. My mother and me lived with her parents, my grandparents.
My father was then in the Marine Corps and over seas (literally) on a ship.
My grandparents of course didn't mind us being there at all, I was the first grand-baby. I was cherished by all of my family. Lucky for my dad everyone took lots of pictures. I wouldn't meet my father until I was 3 months old.
 January 3 1991
7 days old

Me and my Poppie

My Uncle Larry and me.

We lived in Sixes for three months.

A story of late night wanderings, bears, badgers, and a bathroom.

Whilst adventuring in the wild woods and sandy beaches of Oregon, I attended yet another year of Girls Camp.
This year I was not there as a girl though. I was there as a Photographer.
This meant I had my own tent that I could set up wherever I pleased.
I choose a choice spot near the place where the food was served, near the bathrooms, and most importantly  where I could avoid the large hills.
My grandparents provided me with a spectacular tent:

I selected the left side of the tent for my own personal use.

I was granted a tent buddy I fondly call Kay-kay. She took the left side and we dubbed our tent Hogwarts.
(She slept in Slytherin I slept in Gryfindor)
The first night was, well, wet.
Being Oregon and everything it rained all night. I woke up the next morning with a wet pillow and slightly soggy socks.
We procured some plastic to use the rest of the week and spent the day under umbrellas

The seconded night is where my story of terror really begins...

It started off fine, after an exausting day of picture taking and gormet judging me and Kay-kay fell into a blissful sleep.
It didnt last long for me.
I woke up in the dead of night with one thought
I have to pee or I may die.
I was groggy and not fully aware of why I was in a tent, I rolled out of bed and into my purple rain boots.
I remember briefly considering waking up Kay-kay, but I decided if I was dying she could hear my scream.
I started up the hill to the bathrooms.
Looking around me in my deeply deprived of sleep state of mind I suddenly realized I was not in Arizona
I was in the woods.
Bears lived in the woods.
Raccoon's lived in the woods
I broke into a sprint the rest of the way to the bathrooms.
Still panicking I went into the bathroom,
"There are no badgers in Oregon" I told myself.
I swung open a stall door causing a large shadow to shift out of the corner of my eye, I almost had a heart attack.
After checking all the other stalls assuring there were no more badgers I relieved my still full bladder.
I stumbling back to my tent, seeing badgers around every corner. I fell into my bed and returned to slumber.
It was by far one of my most terrifying experiences. I don't even remember the rest of camp.

And that is why you should always take a buddy to go pee with you.

Life's a Beach

Just so you know, I'm skipping girls camp for the moment and moving on to my favorite part of Oregon.
The beach.
I will try not to dump to many pictures in this post, I really love the sea, so I take a lot of pictures of it.

I miss the sea.
