austin & i had fall break last week so we took the opportunity to drive up to oregon. austin served his mission in oregon & is always telling me how amazing it is, so i was really excited to see it. we spent the first couple of days staying in manzanita, a tiny coastal town. the oregon coast is seriously gorgeous, it's so different from the beaches i'm used to. it rained our first day, and was pretty foggy the others, but it just adds to the beauty. there's something i love about chilly beach days. 
we drove up & down the coast. our first stop was astoria, where goonies & kindergarten cop were both filmed. the town wasn't quite as exciting as hoped... but i did get a picture in front of the goonie house, so i was pumped & austin got his picture of the kindergarten cop school, so the drive up was worth it. 
afterwards we headed our way down, stopping in seaside, at a lighthouse, to see octopus tree & to cannon beach (where goonies was also filmed), & all the way down to tillamook, where the cheese is made! we went to the tillamook factory & saw all of the cheese getting packaged, & had a lot of samples. it was so good. 


  1. Looks so beautiful! Amazing pictures!
    I guess I'm sort of a weirdo since I love those foggy views and rainy woods. Just breathtaking to me :)

    Have a great day!
