Oregon Coast Loop, part 1

Here is a gallery of photos from a great road trip. I am calling it “Oregon Coast Loop” because we started by driving up through Ashland, on to Eugene, then over to the coastal towns of Lincoln City and Cannon Beach, and finished up by heading inland to Portland and south back to Eugene, Ashland, then home.

While in Eugene visited The Beanery, one of my favorite coffee houses.

For accommodations along the coast I was looking for a hotel that had ocean views and beach access. I’m so glad I found The Ocean Terrace Condominiums in Lincoln City, Oregon. We had a very relaxing 2 day stay, and the views and beach are breathtakingly beautiful.

Our first evening there, a storm was blowing in at sunset. The sky, water, and beach were glowing and you could see the rain falling in the distance. So pretty.

On the next evening the sunset was very different. The storm had passed and everything had a soft, white glow.

These are a few pictures to show a bit of the view from our condo and the lawn on the terrace area just outside our door. We could sit in the living room area and look right out on the ocean. It was wonderful!
