Manzanita

Back in September 2013, I traveled to Manzanita, Oregon to spend some time with friends in a beautiful beach house.  I really enjoyed taking photos and felt inspired by this place.  If you’ve never been, the Oregon coast is one of those “must see” regions.  There’s just something very magical about the tiny coves of beach towns, with large jutting rocks.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy my pictorial memory of this trip.Manzanita, Oregon

Clouds reflections on Manzanita Beach

We were fortunate enough to have a perfect beach day. We went for walks on the beach, visited a friend’s new property they’re building, cooked breakfast, shopped for small goods in town, ate a wonderful homemade chili & cornbread, knit, hot tubbed & spent time talking to one another. It was a very relaxing day filled with simple pleasures.

On the way home, Marie & I stopped in Canon Beach for some coffee beans from The Sleepy Monk. We also stopped at a Rite Aide to buy $10 knock off tom’s shoes. On a whim, we decided to take the short ferry ride from Oregon to Cathlamet, WA via the Columbia River. With a break in the rain, it was absolutely gorgeous and peaceful. It’s also only $5 for the trip, for both of us and the car!

I was inspired by all the reflections in the water. The tide was out and yet a thin layer of water remained.

    I’ve never been to Oregon. Is Canon Beach where they filmed The Goonies?
