Mount Hood -the view from Portland, Oregon
Wahoo ! We left Seattle under blue skies and plenty of sunshine. By the time we crossed into Oregon the sun was blinding us-loved it. Saying good bye to family-hated it ! They will be in our hearts all the time .
Big Smooches to all of you !
We planned on boon docking somewhere along the Oregon Coast at one of the pull outs. Silly us, we forgot how quickly it gets dark and Oregon signage jumps up on you without warning. So we passed several suitable sites before we landed just south of Beverly Beach, Oregon. It was about 6pm when we stopped and lucky us we had some delicious left over chili that my sister in law had made and we had the oh so incredible bread from Ken’s Artisan Bakery in Portland.
Let me digress here, if you are ever in the Portland area make Ken’s a priority stop. He makes the most delicious bread in the entire Universe. So crusty, so chewy, we always buy the Country Blonde Boule-and the largest loaf available. It keeps all week in the brown bag they put it in for you. Once we left Ken’s we just ripped off pieces and ate it on the road-oh so good. And for sopping up the chili-well I thought I died and went to heaven. We also got some pastries for the morning-his Morning Rolls are so cinnamon with just a very slight hint of citrus and I swoon over his caneles. That is one place I’m going to miss terribly !

Love the views !It’s starting to rain a little so we are snuggled in with our wine and some good reading material. We plan on staying here just a couple of nights then head further south-probably to boon dock around Pistol River and Gold Beach Oregon. Happy Trails to all of you!
