A Weekend In Oregon
I'd like to say that eventually, I'll get better at being on top of blogging but every 2-ish months, I play the game of ultimate blogging catch up and I just don't think that's ever gonna change. 🤷🏼♀️
I've meant to share these so much sooner, but here's a small roundup of photos from me and Rachel's trip to the Oregon Coast and Portland! Last year on spring break we went to Banff and so it just felt right to turn it into a tradition and go somewhere on spring break together every year. Rachel loves the coast and I hadn't spent nearly enough time out there so it seemed like and easy choice to go to Oregon!
This one was definitely an adventure. A little over halfway there, Rachel's poor Jeep decided to try die on us, so we nursed it all the way to the coast, and spend the next half of a day in the shop, getting it repaired. Luckily, they took fantastic care of us and were able to get everything back to operating normally in a few hours!
We spent the rest of the day running around on Cannon Beach, stopping at beautiful coastal overlooks, and catching a sunset at Cape Kiwanda. The next morning we got up and ate our breakfast on the beach. I could have stayed there for a whole week, honestly.
We then ventured into Portland, and on the way we made a pit stop at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival. If you're in that area during spring I'd totally recommend checking it out; there's so many varieties of tulips and it's so nice to stare out at rows and rows of them! We then ran all over Portland, getting Voodoo donuts (obviously), stopping at the coolest little nursery (Pistil's is epic and I highly recommend stopping in if you love plants), seeing the Portland sights, and wandering down by the river to see all the cherry blossoms in bloom. We finished out our night by going to a food truck pod and eating the BEST poutine. Ever since going to Canada and trying poutine, I will absolutely take up any opportunity to order it if it's on a menu anywhere. It's SO good.
On our last day, we adventured in the rain around the waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge. Oregon is so green and lush, and to see those waterfalls in person was an awesome sight!
As always, it was a solid trip but I wish I'd had more time there. This is how I feel about most trips I go on, and then I usually end up going back to those places for like, a whole week, to really dig into them. I may or may not have a week long trip to Banff planned in the fall... 😬
Enjoy this small collection of Oregon images! I'm considering offering prints soon, and a few of these may be in the potential mix for that. If that is something you'd be interested in, shoot me a comment below!
