We went to the coast a couple of weekends ago and I took some great pictures! So I thought I would post a bunch here. But then there were so many images that I wanted to use that I thought it would be better to break it up into two posts. How exciting.
Here’s the first group which mainly covers the first day of our adventures — Gearhart, Pacific Way Cafe and the beach. It was also a really great weekend to head to the coast, as the temperature in Portland hit 100 degrees (the first time all Summer). Surprisingly though, it was also pretty hot at the coast. Gearhart and Astoria were both around 88-ish Saturday and Sunday, which is pretty abnormally hot for there (even in August).
The cat before leaving…she has no idea she’s going on a car ride soon. ha ha.
Walking around a small plant nursery in Gearhart.
A bell on a bike, with an illustration of a bike on it…very meta.
Curry Mussels at Pacific Way Cafe. Very good!
The wine was also delightful (and cold)!
Caesar Salad and PWC…it has surpassed the Creamy Gorgonzola as my favorite salad there.
jwa got the dinner special — Copper River Sockeye Salmon with a spice rub and brown sugar crust…he really enjoyed it!
Ice Cream! Malted Chocolate Chip and Mint Chocolate Chip.
After dinner walk on the beach.
Hello little friend…it’s a good thing we already ate dinner.
