O is for The Oregon Coast

I love coastal Oregon. It's always lush and green, even in the dead of summer. Though I don't live there, I've been traveling there probably twice a year for the past thirty years or so, vacationing on the same beach, and loving it more and more each time I visit. It's a great place to do a lot of writing too.

The beaches are clean and beautiful. The air is crisp and clear. The views are astounding. And that the forest meets up with the ocean, makes it consistantly breathtaking. I did a lot of coffee drinking ... duh.

If you've never visited, I highly recommend it. I was just there for ten days and I would love to be there right now. But I'll especially wish to be there when it's 105 degrees here in July, but a balmy 75 degrees there.

Here's their tourism site, just in case you want to make a trip. Oh, and if you want a beach-front vacational rental to rent, e-mail me. I've got the hook-ups.

  1. Never been, by my brother lives in Portland. He sends pictures all the time. Looks just incredibly gorgeous. I'd like to visit someday.

    The coast is beautiful. I had an ex-girlfriend go there every summer to visit her aunt, and she'd send me postcards. Just a scenic part of the country.

    1. It's seriously incredible there. You need to go. Portland? That's like two hours away from where those pics were taken. You MUST visit ...

  3. It's on my list. Sometimes I think I was made for the Pacific Northwest, but I've never been out there.

    1. Seriously, let me know if you need info about the house. It's right on the beach. (It's in the family too, so that helps. :)

  5. Never made it to the Oregon coast. Looks beautiful. I hope to get there one day, even though right now I'm working my way in the opposite direction.

  6. I love that part of the country. It has a different spiritual energy that I like to tap into.

  8. I LOVE the Oregon Coast!! It's my favorite holiday destination that I can drive to. I'm from BC, but have made two camping road trips there in the last 5 years. I wish I could go every summer. I especially love Cannon Beach. I may have to get that summer beach house rental info. Hoping to head back in the next year or so.
