Oregon and the Sea Mist

I had a great time in Oregon this weekend! It was kind of a random, spontaneous trip that I took with my old roommate Emily to Eugene, Oregon to see her family. While we were there for the weekend, we got to see a lot of fun stuff like the coast and some rivers. We drove all day Friday and got to Eugene about 2 am. So we snuck into Emily's house because this was all a surprise to her parents! Saturday morning we went into Eugene to the Saturday Market. It's like a big sidewalk sale of artists and veggies and who knows what else. I've never seen so many hippies in one spot! At one booth, there were some horns attached to a headband and I was about to say something about it when I noticed the girl sitting at the booth was sporting a pair. (She must have been a Mormon!) We also went out to one of Emily's favorite spots where there is a lovely covered bridge and a forest by the river. On Sunday after church, we loaded up a lunch and with the whole family to the beach! We went to Heceta where there is a really pretty lighthouse and area to picnic, and stick your toes in the water. It wasn't too cold but we sure didn't take our swimming suits! We had a really great trip and even the 12-hour drive wasn't TOO bad!

Cute pics! I'm jealous. The oregon coast is a place that I've always wanted to visit! So green and lush!

Wow. How fun! Your pictures are amazing. I don't know if it's the photographer or the scenery. Must be a combo of both!! :)
