We just returned form our two weeks trip up North on Highway 101 along the Oregon and Washington coast. It was a very relaxing, quiet trip - we didn't have any special plans or destinations that we wanted to reach. When we liked a place we stayed there for a while. There was lots of time for reading, writing and even sketching and painting. It was one of the most beautiful trips I ever had.
We explored fisher ports like this one in Brookings,
saw many lighthouses - this one is Heceta Head,
watched seagulls eating their breakfast,
had super fresh seafood ourselves,
ran at the beach,
sat around the campfire,
explored tide pools and learned that this is an ochre sea star (pisaster ochraceus),
didn't mind the often misty weather of the Pacific Northwest,
visited the rainforest in Olympic National Park and got eaten alive by mosquitoes while camping there,
watched young elk,
got very muddy boots on our hikes and walks,
found treasures on the beach,
discovered the lost whale in the Klamath River on our way back home,
and fell deeply in love with the Pacific Northwest.
Did you go somewhere and fell in love with the place?
