With two of our kids living on the West Coast, it was plenty of incentive to head that way ourselves. Besides, I had dreamed of seeing San Francisco for thirty-five years. So after a few days there with son, Mark, we headed on up to Oregon to visit daughter, Kari and her partner, Ken, in Portland.
2003 - Our first trip to Oregon had to include a trip to the ocean. Hug Point State Park between Arch Cape and Cannon Beach was their favorite which is where these photos were taken.

In 2006, we reversed the order and went to Oregon first and then to California.
The Autumn of 2014 found us on the road west again as we journeyed to Portland for the open house at Kari & Ken's new home. I have blogged about this trip before......
I did fly to Portland by myself a couple of times, but our preference is always to drive. Hopefully we will be able to do that another time or two.
