Yes this year I was inducted into the "40" age bracket!! In truth, besides being excited that it was a birthday I could promote and make a big deal out of, it really wasn't a big deal. Turning 40 wasn't a big deal I mean. I did not magically age and grow excessive gray hair. I did not add more wrinkles overnight. And now when I proudly tell people I am 40 I get a kick out of the "no way"! "I thought you were closer to 30"! Yes, you can keep those comments coming! Reality though. I do have moments of a little despair when I think of the things I have not accomplished by the age of 40, but that is life!
To celebrate I took a drive up the Oregon Coast, hiking and exploring the beautiful countryside.
Heceta Head Lighthouse.
Cape Perpetua near Yahachts.
Lincoln City where I luckily found a collectors glass float!
Cape Lookout near Tillamook
Peter Iridale at Fort Stevens State Park.
After that my birthday adventures head to Astoria. I'll post about that in another post!
