On Saturday, I fly to Iowa for a wonderful two and a half weeks with my daughter and her family, so we took advantage of this last Sunday for a while – a beautiful and surprisingly warm day –  to drive over to the coast (a little over an hour).  We then drove down the Pacific Coast Highway until we were about 30 minutes from the California border.  Had we planned ahead, we might have made it an overnight trip and ventured on down to see the redwoods.  Maybe next time.  Usually, it is chilly and gusty on the Pacific beach…not today.  I had a light jacket on but didn’t real need it.  Amazing for February!

This scene is in Port Orford, Oregon…one of our stops along the way.

    Sigh! Some of the happiest moments of my childhood were spent on the Oregon coast. I remember getting a shock in my 20s when watching a Japanese film, because their coast is the twin of the Oregon coast. Continental drift suddenly made sense. That’s a great video! I love that the weather was misty – very typical.

    I’m glad you had such a good time, and happy travels to your family in Iowa. x

      I would imagine these scenes did bring back memories for you! I love the drive down the Pacific Coast Highway and, next time, would like to head NORTH to visit Astoria!

  • Visually, the west coast has an embarrassment of riches. What a stunning place to live and to visit, and wonderfully, still beautiful and unspoiled.

      I totally agree, Tom. Our plans for March are to travel farther North in the Pacific Northwest…to Victoria, BC and tour Victoria a little more. We had all of about two hours there on our cruise last July. Another beautiful part of the country…
