The End of the Road in Style

Yesterday was another reminder of just how easily I become addicted to the Internet…being connected electronically. Being on a road trip is no guarantee of unplugging unless you intentionally choose to do so. Or it’s chosen for you  

We got lost on our trek up the Oregon coast and ended up at the end of the road. Literally. A landslide 5 years ago prevents the road from continuing north.

Oceanside cabins on the Oregan coast

The road ended at six little cabins on the coast. I use the word cabins loosely.

They look like “backyard sheds” from Home Depot dressed them up with electricity, a small bathroom, tiny kitchenette and queen sized bed. They were actually built in the early 1920’s.

I had my choice and picked the furthest one. I can lay on the bed, look out the door and see the waves crashing.

The only problem is the WiFi stops at several cabins before our’s. I have to stand in front of someone else’s cabin to get my email, post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest. I was momentarily frustrated and annoyed. That meant I had a problem. I was too plugged in! I could choose to be stressed or chill in the plastic chair on the little deck and watch the waves. So that’s what I did.

No one can call me…which worries me a smidge because I have family. It’s not as though they need to get hold of me all the time. But the mother in me feels she needs to be reachable.

This post will go out when I walk down to the coffee shop that has a fast enough connection to send it. In the mean time I’m going to chill, watch the waves and daydream.

Enjoy your day!




  1. That would’ve stressed me out. Wi-Fi stopping half way thru the bank of cabins? It was menat to be, though. Sounds like being off the grid for awhile gave you a recharge 😉

  2. What a funny little place. But that view! The ocean is always a good idea.

    1. Oh, and you might like the necklace in my blog giveaway. In fact I’d love to hear what you think of it, if you have time. No need to comment on my blog, I’m just curious as to your opinion since I love your taste.

  3. Love that color on you & your necklace. And yes, sometimes it is good to be forced to disconnect. Looks like a lovely place!

  4. Lovely description of an America that few tourists would experience – thanks!

  5. A view at the sea! Ooh, you could hear it, I love the sound of the sea! What a lovely place to Be.

    Enjoy the Oregon coast! Its beauty is unsurpassed. Hope you get as far as Cannon Beach. It is one of my very favorite places. I can totally relate to your “the mother in me”. It never goes away does it, no matter how old our children are. : )

  7. Perfect! We all need to disconnect sometimes. Enjoy the moment.

  8. I love the Oregon coast, and I totally relate to your need for wifi!

  9. Welcome to Oregon! Your pictures make me want to take a break for the weekend, but alas it will have to wait. Safe travels and enjoy!

  10. What a lovely & homey cabin! For me, that would be a destination. Love your post!
