Tommy Takes On: The Oregon Coast Day Seven

The final day of our epic adventure! This bittersweet and final day was half adventure and half driving back home to Olympia, Washington. It was hard to believe that over the course of two legs, we had seen the entire Oregon coast from north to south. Truly a dream trip and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to take it on with The Peoples Coast (@thepeoplescoast).

We knew that we needed to go out with another gorgeous morning - so you guessed it, we were up before the sun! We left Bandon and headed north to Cape Arago, Shore Acres, and Sunset Bay State Parks outside of Coos Bay. We had all of Cape Arago to ourselves and I enjoyed a gorgeous overview while I called home to my wife and wished her a great day. One thing that is tough about these trips is being away from her - especially this time because she was sick. Having the opportunity just to say hello in the mornings with a view like this meant a lot.

The air was cooler this day and the sun was not breaking through quite like it had during the rest of the trip, but as we know, the Oregon Coast is absolutely gorgeous no matter the weather.

 

After enjoying the gorgeous views from above, Evergreen and I hiked down to the bottom to enjoy yet another beach entirely to ourselves. We found the perfect piece of small driftwood to play fetch with and Evy got a lot of excited energy out of her system. 

We made out way back down to Sunset Bay so Evergreen could enjoy some less rocky, more playable coastline. I wanted to make sure that she was nice and tired because we had a big drive ahead of us that day... She thought it was a great plan too.

After thoroughly enjoying our morning on the water, we headed back over towards Charleston Harbor. As I mentioned before, we were always on the hunt for crabbing boats and unloads - there was once again nothing going on though. We still enjoyed getting out and exploring the docks and the small harbor town. I personally love the small detail you can find in all things nautical.

And just like that... Our journey had come to an end and we had a long, but gorgeous, drive back home.

I just wanted to say a very sincere thank you to The Peoples Coast (@thepeoplescoast) for partnering with us on this adventure. As someone who was born and raised in Oregon and frequented the central and northern coast... This trip and this coastline holds a very special place in my heart. It was amazing to be able to experience it from top to bottom and to also meet many great people along the way. This was a "dream" trip for me and I am so fortunate to have been able to take it on.

Until next time, Oregon Coast! Which will definitely be soon.

Tommy
