I love road trips, especially if I don't have to be behind the wheel. I wasn't even expecting the trip until a week before it was set to happen. Being spontaneous brings me joy especially when the road leads to beautiful explorations.
Over the weekend I went on a road trip to watch a Gary Numan show in Portland with my friends. I met nice people, ate good food, played with a three month old baby. I thought we were just going to hang out in Portland the next day but we ended up taking a spur of the moment detour along the Oregon coast. This has been a dream of mine for a long time. I finally got to experience it and it was amazing. It is so dreamy at Cannon Beach.
While we were driving back up the coast into Washington we stopped off at another park,
Cape Disappointment. There was a breathtaking view and North Head Lighthouse.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest. I love that the roads that lead to beauty are so close. I love that there are so many places to explore.
Cape Disappointment was anything but disappointing. Being there makes the other things in life that are disappointing dissolve into the ocean air, at least in that moment. I went with a heavy heart and left with a sense of peace and feeling of awe.
