Seaside Golf

Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

"Ocean therapy should be covered by health insurance."

Yesterday, we had an impromptu golf game at the Seaside Golf Course, which was just a couple miles from our hotel.  We didn't have any other specific plans for the day so we went looking for golf courses.  Seaside Golf Course isn't ON the ocean but it was certainly close enough to enjoy the ocean breezes. 

When we checked in for our tee time, the guy behind the counter was quite friendly, even offering me a job for $12 per hour, all the FREE golf I want and discounts on pro shop merchandise.  LOL   I bought a hat and said "No thanks" to the job. 

It's a fun, relatively short, par 70 9-hole course that you can play twice for the typical 18 holes.  I played well.  Didn't get any birdies but lots of pars and ended up with a 78 for the round. 

It was a bit of a slow back nine so I took a few pictures of some wild Red Elderberries on the course.  We have noticed they are very prolific along the coastal roadsides.  In doing some research, I have learned the roots, bark and leaves are poisonous but have medicinal value in small doses  as emetics. I wouldn't want to be the one to test lethal levels.  The wood is used for flutes, funnels and bows.

It was another evening of relaxing on the balcony, enjoying the sunset and watching the people on the beach... while, as a side note, keeping an eye on the Seattle Mariner baseball game playing on the TV.  

Today, is a travel day.  Time to head back toward Spokane to pick up Gail's puppy and spend the week-end before a golf event there on Tuesday.

Good morning, Carol Williams happy to hear your therapy is working for you.... and I think laying on the beach could be another therapeutic remedy, especially for real estate participants....

You're on to something with the idea about great recreational activities being included in our health insurance.  I think we should lobby for that, Carol.
