Oregon Coast ⇒

The last time Christine & I had more than 2 days with no kids we went to Australia. This time we went a tad closer, to the Oregon Coast.

Christine found us a nice VRBO in Seaside and on Monday (July 27), we headed down.

First night was just a quiet walk around the town w/ dinner at Lilikoi's.

We did find a treasure that night, an amazing candy store, Schwietert's which started a great tradition...late night fudge.

Day one was strolling around Cannon Beach looking at the shops and going for a really nice walk along the beach to see Haystack Rock.

Wednesday we went on a hike that turned out to be quite challenging. It was very muddy and we had the wrong footwear & both of had foot/hip injuries that made it much harder than we had anticipated. Ended up taking us just over 4 hours to do the 8 1/4 mile hike.

Thursday was Astoria, which is the oldest settlement west of the Rockies, founded by Lewis & Clark. Met my long-time friend Clayton for lunch then off to the neat Columbia River Maritime Museum.

We only drove 1/2 back that day and stayed in Olympia and headed home the next day.

Oregon Coast is an extremely pretty trip and highly recommended.
