Oregon

Recently I’ve been having the urge to write. This rarely happens to me. In University I absolutely loathed writing papers ( Just ask Tony!). But now I’ve been yearning to continue with the blog and explore creative writing. I’m also planning on updating the blog much more often.

Much has happened since I last posted (I’ll fill you in on that later) but I thought I’d start with a recap of our Road Trip down the Oregon Coast, Napa Valley and San Francisco.

We had an absolutely fabulous time and put on about 5400 km on our new Mitsubishi!

Oregon was beautiful! We’d never been there before and wished we spent more time there. The beaches were vast and life seems so laid back. Dogs are welcome pretty much everywhere, you can drive on the beach and openly have bonfires on the beach.

We found a piece of drift wood that became a….

and a horse!

Then we had an epic stick throwing contest. I clearly won as Tony’s throw was pretty wimpy.

We found some really pretty houses in Astoria built on a little bay. We’re still scheming to figure out how we can move there.

We stopped in Bruce’s Candy Kitchen in the cute little tourist town of Cannon Beach and ended up purchasing about two pounds of fresh salt water taffy.

After hearing so much about Tillamook Cheese I knew we needed to stop at the factory. When we got there it was SOOOOO busy that you could barely move. We took a couple quick pictures, ate some samples and bought a couple loafs (hahaha) of cheese and left.

As we drove the the redwoods there was a beautiful ethereal glow produced by the fog and sunlight shining through the trees.

Have you ever been to Oregon? What was your favorite part?
