I’ve been wondering lately why some people are compelled to blog about their travels and others aren’t. I now know 100% why I blog, because if I don’t, I forget what the hell I did and where I did it! I do remember how those places made me feel, and some of the experiences I had, but specifics? Forget about it! (DONE-forgotten!)
This little photo essay is a great example of just that. I took this trip down the Oregon Coast with my 2 friends in Aug. 2010. I know it was fun. I know I loved Cannon Beach. I know I had some damned good fish tacos. I know we went to the Tillamook cheese factory on our way to Portland. I know I got lost in Powell’s book store. I know I had the best flour de sel caramel with chocolate ripple ice cream I’ve ever had in my entire life at Ruby Jewel’s, but that’s about it.
I was already in “travel mode” knowing my 6 month adventure was creeping ever closer in April 2011, so I took loads of photos of Cannon Beach. Here are a few of my favorites.
Damn I wish I’d had my blog back then!
|Summer in Oregon. It was COLD!|
|Jonathan Livingston Seagull, I presume?|
|Fish heads, fish heads, roly poly fish heads.|
|Surfer at Cannon Beach.|
|One of the most interesting coastlines in North America, no doubt about it!|
|Me and my girls leaving Cannon Beach on our way down the foggy coast.|
|I’m pretty sure this was called Pacific City? I just can’t remember.|
|Doe a deer, a female deer. In Portland.|
