pacific northwest road trip - day - 5 - the oregon coast

the oregon coast is breathtaking, misty, with haystack rocks jutting out of the sea... 
you'll already know it if you have seen the goonies, and if you haven't seen the goonies what are you doing with your life? all the beach and ocean scenes were filmed along it's shores. 
we spent the day driving from portland to yaquina bay coastline. 
we visited the lighthouses at yaquina and just missed seeing some migrating humpback whales (isn't that always the case, "you just missed them" lol.) 
then we headed north up the coast stopping at the devil's punch bowl state area to check out the sea cavern and hit mo's for their famous chowder.
 then we made a stop at the spectacular cannon beach, with it's giant haystack rock and spent the end of the day looking at tide pools and enjoying the misty and mystical setting. 
the town of astoria was the last stop of pacific northwest road trip day five - just dinner and bed in the goondocks. 

always a beautiful drive along the coast - trees for days. 
the dunes and the sea, so many jellyfish  
the yaquina lighthouse - watching for those whales
at cannon beach - digital above and instant camera film below  
from cannon beach to the colorful houses of astoria, only the sun could have made his day any more perfect. 
wearing - wildfox sweatshirt, aritzia leggings, pendleton backpack, spy alcatraz glasses and birkenstock arizonas.
