I met Juli, (also known as SuziQ of Whimpulsive) online over 10 years ago when we were both fairly new to blogging. Whenever either she or I would post pictures of our travels down the Oregon coast, particularly to The Chowder Bowl in Nye Beach, we would tell each other that someday we would have to meet there for lunch. Well, it wasn't the Chowder Bowl, but we finally got together in Nye Beach at The Taphouse. And do you know what? It didn't feel at all strange meeting a longtime blogmate. Surprisingly, we didn't talk about books, but rather about travel, retirement, and life in Oregon. And our husbands enjoyed getting to know each other, as well. Now that Rod & I are living on the coast, we hope to see Juli and Jeb again sometime soon, especially if there's good beer involved!
Sadly, we didn't get a photo with Rod. Next time!
