Wednesday, September 2nd ~ Southern Oregon Coast
In my humble opinion, there are not many places on this planet that are as beautiful as the Oregon Coast. I may be a little prejudiced, since I was born in Southern Oregon, but after traveling far and wide, I still get a little awed whenever I am fortunate enough to return here.
With a combination of large trees and beaches, looming cliffs, rocks and pounding surf, piled driftwood, gentle hiking trails, tidal pools to explore, shellfish to consume, and a comfortable climate, it offers up something for everyone.
Today our journey took us from just below the California to Oregon border along the 101 Highway through Brookings, Gold Beach and are overnighting in Bandon by the Sea.
The lighthouse was already closed by the time we got there, so had to take a photo from far away. Hoping to get closer to another lighthouse in the next day or two.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that I am “home”. Having been born in Southern Oregon, I think I will always think of this state as “where I am from” even though I have lived in California now twice as long as I lived in Oregon. I wonder if other people feel this way. Will the place you were born always feel like “home” to you?
