Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

The Best Beach on the Oregon Coast...Bandon

So far, in my travels along the Beautiful Oregon Coast, Bandon Beach and Face Rock have proven to be my favorite. Beach Loop road provides a number of ocean access points with ample parking. The paths, stairways to the beach are fairly easy to walk and well maintained.
Once on the beach, the plethora of large rock formations is simply stunning, as the monoliths vary in color and texture. Some of the large rocks sport a cascade of growing plants that appear to grow with nothing more then sea air and rock. We located a couple of caves and were quite cautious and aware of the ebbing tide as we briefly explored. 
The ocean flowing around the rocks left small tidal pools and a collection of barnacles and limped. Even though there were dozens of ocean goers, it never felt crowded due to the width and breadth of the sand. It felt like being in a secluded alcove complete with gentle, rolling eaves.
It is my favorite beach!!! Living three hours away, I wish I could go more often. It truly is a treasure!!
