This vacation started out by looking like it wasn’t going to happen. It eventually proved to be one of our best vacations ever!
We landed in Portland Saturday evening, picked up our rental and headed for Rockaway Beach. Along the way, we were greeted by some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. The drive through the Tillamook Forest is unbelievable.
I don’t intend to recap the whole week, here, as I have gone into detail in other blog posts. I just want to share some more photos that I was unable to upload because of the poor wi-fi service.
Our house was within view of a rock formation called Twin Rocks.
We were treated to some beautiful sunsets.
Sunday, we saw infamous Haystack Rock, featured in The Goonies.
There was another rock formation on the other end of Cannon Beach.
Several evenings, I went for a walk on the beach, before sunset. The wind picked up, from the north, every afternoon around five o’clock. You can see the ripples in the sand, along with the grooves made by objects that got in the way.
I even got some shots of an almost full moon.
Then we saw Multnomah Falls.
Thursday, we drove to Lincoln City, to the Chinook Winds casino. There aren’t any pictures from Thursday, but we had a great time, just like all the other drives, it was a spectacular trip.
I think that’s the best of all the pictures. We got back home at around 8:30 last night. We are content as can be with this vacation. Oregon is the most beautiful place I have been, up to this point in my life.
Grace and peace, friends.
