The Oregon Coast

Our journey from Newport to Seaside was only a small fraction of the coast (OK, almost half the coast), so you can imagine how many more wonders abound to the South.

I was lucky enough to drive from Newport DOWN in 2001, when a friend of mine and I decided to drive to San Francisco on Easter weekend. It was a great trip with fond memories and the Oregon Coast was certainly a highlight. I wish I had my old photo albums on me so I could dig out some photos and scan them, to show you The Sea Lion Caves near Florence, the tall, golden hills of sand at Oregon Dunes National Park and the perfect sun easing herself into the Pacific in the Cali/Oregon town of Brookings.

But for now, we'll have to make due with some of my favourite photos of my most recent trip. Enjoy!:

This is a very beautiful and a very graceful even so elegant destination. This place is so vast and having got all the possible amenities and facilities has been provided by their tourism department to all the potential travelers and they are getting much earning due to the arrivals of international travelers on this beautiful place. All the experience is great and fantastic and full of joy, cherish and excitement. The beaches are so evergreen and tremendous and are great sandy beaches which are looking an awesome.
