Live from the Oregon Coast

Posted by Phil Weber on May 26, 2003

I've been enjoying four beautiful days and nights at a beach house in Neskowin, OR (about 15 miles north of Lincoln City). I don't have a digital camera (yes, I'm the last remaining geek without one. I'm also the last geek on earth who hasn't seen The Matrix: Reloaded), but there are some photos of the house and the view here. I was way overdue for a vacation; it's been delightful to relax, eat, drink and watch movies with a few close friends.

One feature of the house they don't mention on the Web site is the wildlife: a family of deer has been foraging nightly in our backyard, and a very precocious racoon has adopted us (our fault for giving him some food); he was peering through our patio door until I went to bed at 1:30 a.m. last night.

The only things that could make this weekend any more perfect are a broadband Internet connection and a smokin' home theater system... ;-)

Yeah, have you ever wondered why nobody has come out with an LCD-projector / DVD player combo? It doesn’t seem like it would be too hard to make. You could just bring it anywhere and have a home theater wherever there’s a white wall!
