Ah…the Oregon coast, the stuff dreams are made of. Having grown up in southern California I spent plenty of time at the beach but in the Pacific Northwest you don’t go to “the beach” you go to “the coast”. True to form the coast is much different than the beach. Oh sure enough there are beaches on the Oregon coastline (some really great beaches!) but the beaches take a back seat to the coastline which can be rugged, rocky and dramatic. In places, miles of sea stacks dot the coastline and old growth forests grow practically up to the incoming waves. A trip to the Oregon coast will not soon be forgotten.
