Day 25 – The Beach, Oregon Coast
After leaving the Avenue of the Giants, we continued, yet again, up the coast. However, the scenery began to change as we passed from California into Oregon. The clouds were heavy and damp, a chill hung in the air. It gave the coast such a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. We couldn’t help but feel like we had somehow time-warped to Ireland.
We began passing scenic overlooks before stopping on a quiet beach with enormous black rocks scattered across the sand and rising from the waves. The sand was almost as dark as charcoal, littered with smooth white driftwood and vibrant flowers. They were such a contrast to the grey sky and dark waves! It was breathtaking!
We loved this spontaneous stop so much. It was such a perfect introduction to Oregon!!
