My dear hubby and traveling companion mentioned recently that he’d like to take a trip down the Oregon Coast.
“It’s been a while,” he said.
Actually, it hasn’t. We went twice last year; and every year before as long as I can remember.
My reply: “How about this fall?”
Why not, it’s a classic!
Just cross the bridge from Washington over the Columbia River and you’re in Astoria, ready to take the scenic route on 101 for the next 364 miles!
The hard part will be deciding where to stop and for how long. You’ll be tempted by every beach and small town you see and there’s an endless supply of both.

Don’t forget the lighthouses, unique and beautiful. You have 11 to choose from – here’s a few.
And what’s a trip to the coast without stopping at the Oregon Dunes, “one of the largest expanses of temperate coastal sand dunes in the world,” according to the U.S. Forest Service website. Enjoy the views from the overlooks, take a hike or two, or if you prefer, rent a dune buggy!
And while you’re making your way through paradise don’t forget to enjoy the sunsets over the Pacific.
I can hardly wait.
