Oregon Pt. 1

My first day in Oregon was spent on the coast. I didn't realize how much I had missed the ocean until I saw it.

We had driven 30 minutes north of our destination, the Tillamook Cheese Factory, so my dad could take us to his favorite Ocean overlook. We walked around the small area and thought, oh ya, it's beautiful... guess it's time to go. But then, I found a hidden trail.

My mom wasn't up for it, you could tell it was going to be a challenge. So my dad and I headed down the path to explore. I felt like I was deep within the jungle.

It was amazing, I could have stayed there for hours.

But it was time to move on, so back up the hill we went.
can you spot my dad?

There were some beautiful flowers near the top of the trail, so my dad picked one for my mom. So sweet.

GORGEOUS!

there's just something about the coastline (any coastline, really... err, on the WEST coast... (; ) that is so peaceful, isn't there?

these remind me of big sur and hawaii- if they had a baby, who left home to be just a wee-bit more rugged than its parents..

I haven't visited your blog in far too long! My husband and I have been talking about wanting to visit the Pacific northwest. Portland and the Oregon coast would definitely be stops on our list! Your pictures make it look so beautiful. That tsunami sign is pretty comical. (:
