This is the building in which we're staying. Our third floor unit is directly behind the light pole in this view.
Initially I wanted to sit so that when I was in video conference calls everyone could see the beach behind me out the window, but I found that this blinded the webcam, so I sat instead so that I could look out the window at this beach view while working.
This is how it looks out the opposite side, from the front door looking over the city of Seaside toward the coastal mountains.
After lunch we walked down the Seaside Promenade (a long concrete walkway separating the city from the beach) to the Aquarium (visible in the distance in this photo) and then over to the vacation-rental office, where our Box of Pillow finally caught up to us from Pendleton.
On our way back to the condo, we returned via downtown (very quiet on a weekday before peak season) through the End of the Trail Monument.
The bad part about working from the unit is also the good part: the chairs aren't really comfortable for working for hours on end, not like my office chair. This encourages me to get my work done and then stop, not hover over the computer forever.
