    Where do you go when you need to get away from it all?



    The song may be a bit cliche when refering to "getting away from it all," but I feel it sums up the mood of today's question.

    My extended family has owned property in Long Beach, WA for as long as I can remember. For those unfamiliar with Long Beach (often overshadowed by its namesake in California), it's a small peninsula located just north of the Columbia River which separates Washington and Oregon.



    A quick pic to show to location and the drive I look at. Seattle is at the extreme north.

    Long Beach is a very popular tourist destination, especially since they have embraced some annual events which range from mainstream (4th of July, Rod Run to the End of the World, International Kite Festival) to more abstract (Jake the Alligator Man's Birthday). The city can get crowded during event weekends, but is a quaint and quiet getaway for me whenever I just need to get away from from the daily grind. It's not that I'm antisocial or don't enjoy some of the major events, but it's two different towns depending on what's going on. For some R&R, a quick trip during the middle of the week can quickly recharge the batteries.

    No matter where (or what) it is, we all have somewhere or something that we do when we need more relaxation than usual. Where do you go when you need to get away from it all?

    Last time it was Chicago...

    Usually if I have to get away I'll get out and go for a drive. Rarely the interstate though. I'll take back roads that I know and make a big loop or something, without getting too far out of town.

    I go to the beach in my ragtop and smoke a few cigarettes. It's both soothing and relaxing. Smaller, local beaches, not as congested.

    All I need is my bicycle. No specific place.

    In L.A. I loved to go down to the harbor and watch ships come and go. I also enjoyed dropping by the equestrian center to watch the horses being turned out. Nothing like watching beautiful horses running and kicking up their heels in the sheer delight of getting out of their stalls and getting some excercise free from the burden of a rider.

    If I had some time, I have always enjoyed a trip to the High Sierras to enjoy the clean air, beautiful views and solitude they can provide! Trout fishing is great relaxation too!
