Several weeks it was (surprise) so so rainy in Portland. So we thought we'd try our luck and take a day trip to the coast. It was raining so much, we could barely see on our drive out. But we were rewarded when we arrived to bright blue skies .. and in true Oregon coast form, a cold and windy, but beautiful experience on the beach. Our day was filled with rogue waves, rich clam chowder, salt water taffy, the invigorating scent of the sea, and smiles.
