Whirlwind trip to Oregon

I’m originally from Oregon, and my husband has never been to the state before. My parents travel there every summer, so we decided to take our first family vacation and travel around the state and meet up with them for some camping and a University of Oregon Ducks football game!

We started out in Astoria, Oregon. Had a nice hotel overlooking the river and went to see the Astoria Tower. After carrying Jax up all those stairs, my legs were sore for days! Then we went to do what we really needed to do in Astoria, visit all the Goonies sites! The Goonies is my husband’s favorite movie, and one of mine as well!

Remember Data from The Goonies? This was his outfit and bike!

 

After we got our fill of The Goonies, we started driving south on the coast. There were some overlooks and beaches we wanted to see. The Oregon Coast is beautiful and very different from the Gulf Coast my husband is used to, and we wanted some pics of those famous Goonie rocks!

We also stopped at the National Historic Park of Fort Clatsop. Lewis and Clark spent a winter here getting to know the area and work with the local Clatsop Indian tribe who’s home this was. We toured the wonderful interpretive center and then got to check out the Fort!

This was all day one of our trip! Busy busy! Stay tuned for more of our whirlwind adventure to Oregon!
