Traveling medical students don’t exactly have a lot of time or money for fancy dates, but Jake and I tried to get out and enjoy each locale as much as possible. After all, how many times will we travel the country? Our favorite thing to do in Astoria was get take out after his shift and head to the drive-on beach to enjoy the sunset. We saw a few cars get stuck in the sand, but with our “monster truck”, it was no problem.
Of course, first we had to catch the last bits of sunshine flying the “Octokite” we bought in Newport.
Then there were sandcastles to build.
And finally, dinner with a view.
