HIGHWAY 101

Oregon coast
April 13, 2017

 

Well as expected the weather wasn’t the best on the coast. It could have been worse though. Turns out I don’t melt if I get wet! While it was raining most of the time, the temperature wasn’t to cold so we decided to grin and bare it. As long as you are prepared and dressed for the rain it wasn’t so bad.

Turns out Xander LOVES the beach. He was emotionally torn with his hate of rain and love of the beach. One advantage to hitting the coast this time of year is that we had the beaches to ourselves. It was so fun to see Xander run like a crazy dog up and down the beaches.

Most of this part of our journey was spending anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours on the beach. One of the beaches had a light house that you could walk up to. We spent a lot of time on this beach. The weather was good in the morning when we stopped. It was fun walking the beaches looking for interesting rocks and shells. I had a goal of finding a whole sand dollar and I did! Well James actually found it, but I was happy.

A lot of the beaches blend together on the southern part of the coast, mostly because we didn’t spend much time on them. The Oregon beaches are so different from California beaches. They have these crazy rock formations in the sand and ocean. It really adds some character to the ocean. We have a ton of pictures of amazing beaches and waves. The sunsets on the beach are like no other. The way it reflects off the water is so beautiful.

Once we got up to Florence we cut in to Eugene for a pit stop. I have family in that area that I haven’t seen in a very long time. It was great to be able to see them. We spent a few days here then headed out on Easter day.

I can’t believe all the perfect beaches we have seen so far. The Oregon coast is amazing and we can’t wait to see more of it. Next stop is Tillamook and I’m pretty excited about it.
