(Allison, Natalie, Coderre) Allison celebrates her birthday in a way that is pleasing to others. This year she invited us to drive to the Oregon Coast to sleep over in a yurt. She invited us to share food at the picnic table and to lay on quilts in the sand and soak up the tepid sun while bracing ourselves against the coastal wind. She invited us to comb the beach for treasures, which we did and found and swiftly gifted to her, our Outdoor Queen.
