I have to admit that I forgot about just how stunning the Oregon Coast is. The contrast of the thick pine forests, the dramatic sky, the rippled sand dunes, massive driftwood and the shimmering ocean is soul nourishing. The feeling that came to mind was one of expansiveness. I felt miniscule in the landscape, as if I had melted into it's beauty. I loved to see the freedom for the kids to run against the wind, leap from sandy peaks and follow their happy toes into the low tide. We stayed at the State campground yurts, which are a perfect combination of comfort and simplicity.
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
