Summer FunOne of the many choices that come with the return of Spring is a big one. What am I or we, going to do this summer?  Of course Summer is a ways off.  But Spring is the time to start weighing in on your options for when Summer does arrive!

In fact, this morning I heard on the radio that the best time to buy airline tickets for Summer travel is now!  However, for we folk that aren’t going to fly away this summer what are we going to do?

There are many options to chose from for Summer fun. Too help sort them out we’ve got to look at the persons situation. Do you have kids? That puts you into one group.  Another group is those without kids. And then there is the group of single folks. But have no fear, there are fun Summer events for everyone.

You can take the kids to many programs that are geared for them during the Summer. There’s sports programs offered or the library’s which offer Summer programs. Summer camps are also available for kids. So there are lots of options to keep the kiddos busy.

Now for those without kids there are lots of options including day trips to the many communities near here what you haven’t had time to visit yet. And of course you can always visit the many fine eating establishments that offer Summer specials.

And for you single folks just hitting the highway looking for adventure is a great way to spend a beautiful Oregon Summer night or day!

But my favorite Summer activity is listening to the big city telecasts suggesting folks head to the coast for Summer fun! Well guess what, we live here at the coast and we are ready to have Summer enjoyment right here where we live! Have a great Summer and play safely!

A few years ago at a writers conference held in the central Oregon coast town of Yachats, where I live, I listened to the late Ken Kesey, a frequent visitor to the area, tell a writer that this could be a hard place to write. “If you think you can sit there staring at the ocean for inspiration you’re wrong, it’s not out there, it’s in your head!” He was right; it is beautiful here in Lincoln County, the kind of beauty that makes concentrating on anything else tough and since hearing that insight, I’ve written at a desk facing a wall, no windows opening onto a ocean view, although I have one, but it’s worked. I’ve done, and do, different kinds of writing. As a freelance writer I’ve been a observational columnist, a humor columnist, a book and music reviewer for newspapers, magazines, and online. However, as a creative writer, my heart belongs to fiction. In that genre I do short stories, road adventure stories, musical adventure tales, and in current production, are three small novels. So really the purpose of this web site is to give you a glance of some of the things I’ve done, a preview of what’s coming, and hopefully, a view of what it’s like to be a writer living in a small town on the Oregon coast!
