Others died trying that route. 4,500 miles in five months. And this family never before lived together, at least not all of them at the same time.
Perhaps blended families who don't bog down in "step" titles for relationships have something special going on.
As a mother and grandmother of many -- who birthed only two – I'm impressed with the relationships of this sailing family, the documentary they produced and their book, "The Other Side of the Ice."
A snow-loving Seattle native, I’ve been skiing and snowboarding all over the west, but have never skied in nearby British Columbia. After a recent ski vacation to Sun Peaks Resort BC, I realized how much I had been missing. From incredible skiing to a European style ski in ski out village, and a variety of family-friendly and special needs-accessible activities, it’s easy to see why the second largest ski resort in BC attracts families from all over the region - including Seattle.
The Oregon Coast isn’t known for warm waters or beach reclining activities. In fact you’ll need a windbreaker or light jacket even in the warmest months!
But you honestly can’t beat the jagged beaches of the Central Oregon Coastline for photographic wonder and family fun!
We recently traveled to the Central Oregon Coast when our daughter was in a District Swim Meet there. Heck yes! We happily tagged along for the weekend. The adjoining towns of Coos Bay and North Bend sit on the northern peninsula of the Coos River (where the river makes a bend.. hence the name – North Bend ).
