Weekend Getaway Time!

The weekend is here and it's time for rest and relaxation! We are going to do that by going to the beautiful Oregon coast. We live an hour away from the ocean but try to get there as often as possible. If you ever find yourself visiting our beautful state, be sure to drive down Highway 101 for as long and as far as possible. There are gorgeous sights the entire way including these photos I took along the coast.


I took this picture from the Sea Lion Caves north of Florence, Oregon which we've visited several times but only once the sea lions were actually in the cave. At least the views were nice!
There are many lighthouses along Hwy 101 along the coast of Oregon. I took this photo of Heceta Head Lighthouse through the ocean mist. Heceta Head Lighthouse is 13 miles north of Florence.

OH lovely. We drove the 101 at Christmas down from Portland ...it was cold, windy, rainy and we loved it! I was hoping to get a glimpse of a whale....but no luck!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Oregon has such beautiful scenery. I remember going on a car trip down the coast when I was a little girl when I lived in BC, Canada. I'm glad you're able to get out to the coast to enjoy being by the sea every so often!
