Last Wednesday, Brittany called me at 11pm and said she was picking me up and that we were "going to the ocean". By midnight we were on I-5 south with our friend Caroline. We arrived at our destination around 4am, slept a few hours 'til sunrise, then spent one of the last beautiful days of a fleeting summer on the Nehalem Bay beach. Each of the girls were toting around their own personal bottle of wine as I followed them around with my camera. Whoever said the good times were killing us is wrong.
