Making My Heart Sing

Happy Friday friends! I thought today I’d share a few more photos from D and my road trip from Portland to San Fran. These photos are from my 2 favorite spots along the way that truly made my heart sing.

This was my first time on the Oregon coastline and I was super excited. I love beaches anyway, but the Oregon coastline is SO AMAZING! In Oregon Mother Nature gives you these dramatic cliff coastlines paired with smooth flat beaches. When I saw the immense stretch of smooth packed sand at Beverly Beach I just had to…

SKIP! D and I had a great early evening at the beach. I put my toes into the Pacific Ocean (brrrr!) and I climbed onto a natural log bridge. While D was taking this photo an 7 year old boy walked by and waved to me. Ha! Loved it.

That night we camped in a yurt close to the beach. We had our first camp fire together and sipped Oregon wine from our collapsible camp cups. Vacation doesn’t get any better.

A couple of days later we had a day to spend at Redwood National Forest in Northern California. It has been a dream of mine to see the Redwood trees and to hug one. Yeah, I know a little silly, but it was what I wanted to do! Thankfully, we hiked through a forest full of them and I got my wish.

D and I both agreed that we absolutely loved Oregon and I know we shall be back. I wouldn’t mind spending a few more nights camping in a yurt close to the beach. Maybe next time too we’ll actually see a whale on our whale watch boat ride!

Have a great weekend!
