Oregon Getaway

Since I last posted, my husband and I were able to get away on a little adventure. We escaped to the beautiful state of Oregon for a college football game and a little site seeing with some friends. I took a lot of pictures (way too many to post) so I'll spare you the bulk and just share the more scenic of the bunch.

Multnomah Falls on the Columbia River Gorge...
We decided to hike to the top and captured some pretty pictures of the Columbia River from the trail.


Very green and beautiful.



Ecola State park looking down on Cannon Beach. Beautiful even with a bit of late morning fog...

Oceanside (view from the restaurant where we had lunch)...

Ocean views from Cape Meares...


Cape Meares Light House...

This is the view from our hotel balcony in Newport. By this time, a storm was beginning to roll in and the skies were gray the rest of our time at the coast...


Such a fun trip (even though our team lost). Good company, great food & beautiful scenery. My favorite part was just spending quality time with my husband. It was nice to escape our busy lives and have uninterrupted conversation for 3 days straight. Loved being with him.

And for all those people (a small army) who watched our kids while we were away, THANK YOU! We owe you big time.

WOW! What great pics! I LOVE Oregon and have always wanted to live there. When I was 10 years old, I found a map of Oregon and decided I would move to Astoria and open a flower shop there...maybe someday. Isn't it great to have a vacation with the hubby. You need those moments! Thanks for sharing all of that beautiful scenery!
