Oregon’s beaches

Driving south into Oregon State, we passed over the Columbia River and through Astoria. I had somehow held a very different image of what the area would look like. Instead, I discovered beautiful countryside, quaint towns and quiet beachside resorts.

While the beaches remained spectacular, the temperature didn’t get any warmer. This was the peak of summer but the chilly wind kept the air too cool for me to venture into the Pacific.

We stopped at Cannon Beach, walking along the wide expanse of beach with few people about. They were in the restaurants and shops. I guess the day was too cold for them too.
