On our way home from Portland, Eric and I decided to take a little detour along the Oregon coast. In the morning we headed straight for Cannon Beach. I can't tell you how long I've had my heart set on seeing Haystack Rock in person! After grabbing some amazing crepes at Crepe Neptune (highly recommend the Smuggler's Cove, nutella wins all), we walked down to the beach and laid eyes on this...
^^ I could stare at those puppy dog eyes forever. Taking a moment to just appreciate how I struck gold with this one. ^^
We literally spent two hours walking up and down this beach hand in hand, talking about all the fun adventures we have been on over the past 5 years and what fun adventures we have in the near future. Cannon Beach was a romantic surprise that I hope to never forget. Leaving a piece of my heart there in the meantime.
^^ The Goonies House!! Obviously driving up the coast, Astoria was a must. I grew up watching this movie, and getting to see it in all its glory was well worth it. "HEY YOU GUYS!!" ^^
^^ You can see the school where Kindergarten Cop was filmed in the left corner. Astoria for the win! ^^
