Another amazing day on the Oregon Coast.
Breakfast at our campsite at Beverly Beach and it was good to see Connor getting into taking pictures with our point & shoot. Then off to Agate Beach State Park to roam the Oregon Coast fog covered dunes. It kinda felt we were on another planet until it lifted to reveal the wavy ocean and blue sky. The wind was strong as it blew across the sand, which almost felt like you were on a moving walkway pushing you forward.
From there we hit Sylvia Beach where we had a lovely lunch at one of the seaside cafes and browsed a few of the funky antique and curio shops.
Last stop, the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. Always fascinating, I love that these old lighthouses are so well preserved to the way they were when the families had lived in them. So many memories embedded in the stone and wood, you can still feel their energy. I have lots of photos of the many lighthouses that line the Oregon Coast. Perhaps one day I will create a series to show.
The coast is very special to us because Mike and I did a trip down there in 2007 while I was pregnant with Connor and just a few short months before he was born. We frolicked on the dunes and he was with us. We've taken Connor with us a couple of times since then and it really suits him. We call him our barefoot and blond nature boy. He seems to really be in his element there; we all do. We travel well together and I must say, are the happiest when we're out and about exploring the world.
Next up is day 4 as we make our way north this time to Long Beach, Washington. A place none of us had ever been, and it was magical. Stay tuned!
