As much as I adore living on a houseboat the best way for me to fully relax is with a change of scenery...
The beach is the perfect escape, just a couple hours a way and you are in another world.
The seafood at Local Ocean in Newport is one of my favorite restaurants!!! Not only Delicious it's a feast for the eyes!
We stayed at Salishan a seaside spa near Newport Oregon. The main lodge is filled with art and the spa is an oasis of relaxation.
Our dog Skip is exhausted from running on the beach... with no boundaries! I'm refreshed and inspired by the simplicity of nature and all things Oceanic...ready to go back to Portland and design interiors with a new perspective.
