Driving the Oregon Coast


Over the weekend I took a drive down the Oregon Coast on the 101.  I started in Astoria with the Goonies house and ended with an afternoon on the sand in Cannon Beach.  Any time I feel like I need to rebalance and breathe, the first place I want to go is the ocean.  There's something so calming about the sound of the waves.  It was a great day with overcast skies and foggy layers.  It was comforting for the soul and I loved everything about it.

  1. In all my time living here, I've NEVER been to the Goonies house! I think once my kids are a little older, we'll show them the movie and then we'll take a pilgrimage....

    1. Oh man, you HAVE to go! The Goonies was one of my all-time favorite movies growing up, and one of my favorite nostalgic throw backs now. A Goonies pilgrimage would be awesome!

  3. I love the new look! I really did not realize until I moved to Portland that there is a "beach" culture here which is really different than beach culture anywhere else I've been... I have a feeling I should look into this.
