After wrapping up our school year with testing and poetry at the park, we took a full week to vacation on the Oregon coast at Pacific City.
This was the view from the house we stayed in at the beach with friends for a whole week. Even when we weren’t on the beach, we could still watch the waves. We were one row back from the beach, with access just a few houses down, so it was the perfect set up.
Just as a note if any of you are considering house plans right now: lofts full of children make the living room very loud.
The Oregon coast is cold, but we still like the water and the sand.
And we can count this as school and not vacation, because my husband took the boys to the McMinnville Air and Space Museum about an hour away. They spent all day there, and I preferred being on the beach with small children to all going together!
Pacific City has a giant sand dune, and so we had to hike up it, see the view, and then run down.
I almost gave up about 2/3 up, but I was glad I didn’t when the view on the other side took my breath away.
It was worth it, but I didn’t climb up again.
The climb surely justified the chocolate I had that night, too, right?
