Our trip also included hiking in the Multnomah Falls, visiting the cities of Portland, Newport, and Seaside, eating cheese and ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, boogie boarding, exploring light houses and logging camps, taking an ocean boat tour, and of course, spending a lot of time exploring the beaches.

If any of you are looking for a new vacation spot, I would highly recommend Oregon. Not only is there no humidity, but you basically find any kind of landscape you want: oceans, mountains, forests, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, everything.

So overall, I agree that the Pacific really is terrific. I could easily have spent another week there, but, sadly, returning to reality is all part of the vacation process. I hope you all are getting relaxed and ready to return to the reality that is college! Only three weeks til move in day!
