Stay Positive; Love Your Life (#739)

Despite a long April month of almost constant rain, I am enjoying this part of the coast.  One great thing is walking the long flat beaches finding agates and fossilized shells.

Volunteering at Cape Foulweather Gift Shop & Whale Watch Lookout, I gained knowledge about whales and other sea creatures, met wonderful people from all over the world and enjoyed an enchanted view from my cliffside perch 500 feet above the ocean.

I even got to see a mama whale and her calf swimming out from the cove where they had surfaced.

Today I went for my weekly swim at the indoor Newport Aquatic Center.  One of the finest aquatic centers I have ever enjoyed, complete with a lap pool, activity pool and spa.

My best find was the Surf Town Coffee Company down on the bay.  Their organic Italian Roast coffee is delicious and hearty.

But it is their inspirational motto that I will take with me wherever I travel.  It is simply, “Stay Positive.”

We are shaped by our thoughts;

we become what we think.

When the mind is pure,

joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.     – Buddha
