As I snapped images of the lighthouse, I looked down at the surf below me, wondering if that was what I thought it was.  Yes!  Seals were frolicking in the waves.  My day was complete… well, almost.

I drove north, back to Yachats.  Stopping in town, I picked up a few food items at C & K Market to go with all of my fresh produce.  The Wine Place provided me with the perfect bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir to round out the 'gourmet' dinner I was planning.

Back at the Overleaf, I settled onto my balcony with my food and glass of wine.  I had the best seat in the house for the show that unfolded before me.

The sun sank lower, touching the sea, the sky turning a yellow-orange.  I felt the warmth of the light on my face and in my heart.  The ocean had brought me peace, had brought me back to me.
