somewhereawesome #28: Endless coast – road to Manzanita (chapter 5)

Pacific City – Cape Meares – Tillamook – Nehalem Bay – Manzanita

We just drove up the coast, listened to Arcade fire, drank great coffee, opened the windows and enjoyed endless bay and shore line views! coasttrip-26

It felt that we went to the coast at a great time (April) – empty beaches, only locals in the restaurants and just a laid back atmosphere. But apparently summer here is never getting too crowdy – a little bit different to busy california: “They’re not the types of beaches packed with people in bathing suits and kids splashing around in the surf.  They are vast, empty, windswept beaches and even on a warm summer day there is a brisk chill to the air and a layer of fog that settles over the ocean.”
