I've been back in Canada for a few weeks now and I'm already missing the foggy west coast. We set out on our adventure on sunday morning and spent the next day and a half driving through BC and Washington before arriving in Canon Beach, Oregon for a couple days. I can't even count the amount of times I commented on how beautiful the views were or how green the trees were along the way (sorry to my car mates haha). But seriously, the drive was incredible! 

In Canon Beach we stayed in the teeniest, most darling cabin that was a five minute walk to the beach. We explored the small town, picnicked on the beach and hiked through Ecola State Park (which I would highly recommend!) Despite the rain, we embraced the west coast weather and spent most of our time outside, soaking up our surroundings.

After our time in Canon Beach, we hopped back in the trusty old Camry and headed up to Portland for a few days. Portland definitely lived up to the hype! There is so much to do and see and explore- I'm sure we could've spent a few more days wondering around the city.

I put together a little list of some of the places you should hit up if you're traveling to Portland! Disclaimer: most of them have to do with food or coffee. sorry not sorry.
