So, the first trip that inspired this #TravelThursday blog was from 2007...it was the second time I had been in the USA. The first time was a trip over the bridge at Niagara Falls to Buffalo. The company for that trip was very good, but Buffalo wasn't the prettiest place in the world. So my husband had to do a LOT of convincing to get me to go back to the USA again. But he convinced me that the west coast would be fine. He was right. This was our first of 5 trips to Oregon! Not only does it have beautiful scenery, but it has tax-free shopping! If you ever have a chance, go to Oregon!
We drove a part of the famous Route 101 that goes along the whole west coast of the US. Check out some of the wonderful scenery....and an added bonus for me are the number of lighthouses along the pacific coast! I love lighthouses!!!
Heceta Head Lighthouse
Siuslaw National Forest - love the blurry effect while driving (note: I'm the passenger!)
Cape Creek Bridge near Heceta Head Lighthouse
Myself and Hubby overlooking the beaches
Yaquina Head Lighthouse
Just a taste of the vastness of the coastline of Oregon!
