What I did on my summer vacation–Oregon coast edition

Filed under: Family, Personal — llcall @ 10:06 pm

These pictures don’t need much explanation.  To put it simply, Neal and I both fell in love with the Oregon coast.  Neal especially . . . he is set on ending up there someday.  Wheeler, Oregon, here we come!

Dean Creek Elk Preserve . . . if you have ridiculous eyesight, you can see a herd of elk; if not, enjoy the greenery.


Oregon Dunes National Park . . . Neal has a thing for the desolation of sand.  He could have stayed here for days.



Cannon Beach and the famed Haystack Rock (if you don’t know why it’s famous, wait a post or two and I’ll tell you why it’s famous to me and other fans of a certain cult classic 80s flick).

An overlook somewhere just south of Cannon Beach . . . and HEAVEN.

  2. I’m totally sold. Diane and I have been talking more and more about Oregon, and with these photos, we are convinced. Let us know when you head there, and we will join the caravan.

  3. I didn’t grow up around those particular sections of the Oregon coast, but an hour inland from Lincoln City. LOVE Neskowin Beach, just north of it! And the aquarium in Newport. *sigh* You’re making me homesick. I lived in Oregon until about 6 years ago, when I moved to DC.

  4. Could it be Anne of Avonlea?? I’ve watched that so many times it looks a lot like the time she loses her novel pages.

  5. I am so happy to hear that you love the Oregon coast! I have LOVED the Oregon coast since I was a teenager and have wanted to live there ever since. I knew there was a reason why I liked you guys! Love, Debbie
