DAY 3 - OREGON COAST ROAD TRIP


We took a beautiful walk on the beach outside our room at The Inn at Spanish Head. Then got on the back roads along the coast going north toward Cannon Beach. The sun was out today, after a true rainstorm yesterday. We stopped at Cape Lookout and hiked to the point, a nice 5 miler with views to the surf below. There were some pretty impressive drop offs so we were careful on the slippery, muddy trail. Then on toward Cannon Beach with dips into pretty little bay towns along back roads with little traffic. Then the Stephanie Inn - what a treat! The beach here is gorgeous, long, flat and at sunset people come out to enjoy the views of Haystack Rock. Had a fabulous dinner and breakfast. Now, on to Astoria . . . .

DAY 2 - OREGON COAST ROAD TRIP

Today was the longest drive-day of our trip. We went from Port Orford to Lincoln City, stopping for lunch at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. It was a little slice of Scotland with the weather simulating the highlands perfectly. They don't allow golf carts, making the Scotland comparison even more authentic. If we were golfers this would be paradise. Then on to Florence and Newport. Both of these towns have a lively old section that caters to tourists, but Newport is an active, working port with docks and fish processing right in old town. The drive north from Newport along a rugged, narrow cliffside road was made a bit more exciting as the skies opened up to a major rainstorm. One last stop before arriving at The Inn at Spanish Head was Depoe Bay. The Bay, affectionately called Devils Punchbowl was churning and boiling and basically living up to it's name. We spied a place we will one day return to that looked amazing - Whale Cove Inn, Depoe Bay.
