[74/365] Bench Overlooking the Oregon Coast, Cannon Beach, Oregon, USA

About a year ago this time, I took a trip to Oregon and we drove to the coast to see the beautiful Oregon coastline. Driving into the Ecola State Park, we came upon this bench on a grassy area overlooking the water. It was really windy, but seeing the coastline was well worth it!

[19/365] Travel Section, Powell’s Books, Portland, Oregon, USA

It’s 2010 and I need to figure out my travel plans for this year! I’m getting anxiety about not really having anything planned yet. So many places to go, limiting factor: time.

As we drove by, we were captivated by its beauty and pulled over into the parking lot. From high up, the water came flowing down over the rocks towards the bottom of it. As we […]

Oregon Coast from Ecola State Park, Cannon Beach, Oregon, USA

Driving through the winding, dark roads of Ecolo State Park to an opening, especially when darkness was quickly approaching and the park was close to closing was an adrenaline rush. After what seemed like a while (short as it was), we were able to get to the clearing along the coast to be able to […]

Merry-Go-Round, Seaside, Oregon

In the beachside city of Seaside in Oregon, there was a small plaza with little souvenir and art shops with a merry-go-round to top it off. There were few passengers but still the show went on. Outside the plaza, it was windy and gloomy so this plaza was our safe haven for just a few […]
