After a few weeks of 10+ hour days, I felt that a longer weekend was overdue, so I have asked for the entire Easter Weekend off, including both Good Friday and Easter Monday. The boys have booked the ferry rides both ways (the ~$18 fee was well worth it for the sole purpose of avoiding the stress of rushing to secure a spot), leaving at 5.15 am on Friday morning, and coming back at 8.15 pm on Sunday.
Destination: Nehalem Bay (camping); Short Sand Beach (surfing).
There were 5 of us: four lads and one lady, travelling in two cars. The trip has started at 4.15 am, when I was woken up by a phone call, because I forgot to set the alarm (oh, me). Luckily, all my stuff was already packed from the night before, so it was only a matter of minutes to negotiate on the things taken, then bring them out the door in to the car.
