Newport, Oregon: The Ocean, The Sights, All The Fish Eaten…

Newport, OR

This is going to be quite the photo-heavy post. A couple of weekends ago we were lucky to have a long four-day weekend in Newport, Oregon. We rented a condo right on Nye Beach and spent those four days walking on the beach, eating, drinking at Rogue, and going to the Aquarium. And best of all, it was even sunny every day!

Some of the places that we went to that I don’t have photos from include: Panini Bakery – 232 NW Coast St (lattes, pizza, breads!), Nye Beach Market – 526 NW Coast . . . → Read More: Newport, Oregon: The Ocean, The Sights, All The Fish Eaten…

24 Hours on the Coast in Lincoln City, Oregon

Lincoln City, Oregon

Lincoln City is a long, sprawling town on the central Oregon coast. It has a casino, an outlet mall and continues along Highway 101 for miles. But it also has equal miles of sandy beaches, distinct neighborhoods and a couple of pretty good places to eat. It’s also known for all of the glass art studios that populate the area, as well as being a great location to view pelicans flying over the ocean. The Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau even hides glass floats on the beach for visitors to find in . . . → Read More: 24 Hours on the Coast in Lincoln City, Oregon

A Full Moon Weekend in Astoria, Oregon

Eating, Restaurants and Sights in Astoria Oregon

I’m a big fan of Astoria, Oregon.

I’m not sure why exactly. I did get married there, so I’m sure that has something to do with it, but the reason we even picked Astoria in the first place is that it’s just a cool little town. It’s a bit rough around the edges (although, less so since cruise ships dock there now) but it’s still very quirky. Beautiful. Strange. And sometimes even sunny. Okay. I guess that’s why.

On this recent trip, we rediscovered a restaurant that . . . → Read More: A Full Moon Weekend in Astoria, Oregon

Coast Weekend in Photos: Part II

Astoria, OR

So, here’s the second part of my coast photos post and most of these pictures are from Astoria. With one exception…the first one is of Sunday morning’s breakfast…a cream cheese and onion bialy from Pacific Way Cafe Bakery. I liked this so much that I recreated them at home last weekend. They turned out great! (Recipe soon).

Later that day, we ended up going to Fort George Brewery in Astoria for a late lunch/early dinner on Sunday. While we were driving around Rockaway Beach, Pacific Way called me and cancelled our reservation for that . . . → Read More: Coast Weekend in Photos: Part II

Coast Weekend in Photos: Part I

Coast Weekend

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 . . . → Read More: Coast Weekend in Photos: Part I
