Found some friends at the beach this morning!
When you canโ€™t make up your mind...order a bit of everything ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜
Perspective changes everything. Drone shots are still my favorite. Theyโ€™ve given us the ability to see views previously only seen by birds.
๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ is our reaction to this Oregon-inspired picnic basket made of goodies from the Oregon Cheese Trail and put together by @thewedgeportland. We're honored to see our Premium Aged Cheddar in the mix along with @hotlipssoda , @rubyjewelicecream , Columbia Empire Farms, @smithteamaker , @olympiaprovisions , @almachocolate , @oregonolivemill and @cacaoportland. A National Picnic Month must! . . . . . . . . #cheese #cheeselovers #cheeselover #dairy #oregon #oregoncheese #bestoforegoncoast #pnw #bestcheese #yummy #yum #cheeseplease #tasty #delicious #food #forkyeah #portland #portlandoregon
Such a gorgeous sunset tonight!
My first capture of the Oregon outdoors. The memory of taking this shot is a vivid one, as I was glued to looking through only my camera at that time. When I clicked the shutter and saw what I photographed, I quickly looked up to realize this small eruption had grown 5 times its size in seconds. Before I knew it, I was drowned on land. #worthit
Day 2 (Astoria to Tillamook): hikes, brews, beaches. Thereโ€™s a solid pattern emerging already and I like it.
Nice spot to enjoy the view between property showings today. Astoria is so beautiful when the sun is shining! โœจ
Sweet summertime
Ready for our next adventure, who else is impatiently waiting on their next trip?!
Enjoying the best the Oregon Coast has to offer, made better by a downwind shuttle!
The mountains were fun, but it feels great to be back here.
I went hiking in an undisclosed location and found 16 plants of Lilium occidentale. Known as the Western Bog Lily, it is officially ENDANGERED. The Western bog lily is federally listed under the Endangered Species Act, and listed as Endangered in California and Oregon. The western lily grows at the edges of sphagnum bogs and in forest or thicket openings along the margins of ephemeral ponds and small channels. ย It also grows in coastal prairie and scrub near the ocean where fog is common. #oregon #exploreoregon #beach #pnw #pnwwonderland #pacific #bestoforegoncoast #pacificbeach #instagramoregon #oregonexplored #oregonbeach #getoutdoors #getoutside #nature #wildlife #pacificcoast #bandon #instagramoregon #ocean #pnwcollective #wilderness #coast #oregonlakes #coastexplorer #discoverthePNW #oregonnw #wildlife #westbysouthwest #itsyouroregon
Life is swell. ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐ŸŒŠ
Ask yourself thisโ€”If someone took everything you owned away from you, could you still smile? Could you still be happy? All I need is humor, good people, adventures, and...LIFE ๐Ÿ”†
Probably the most surreal moment I've ever experienced. This whale's head was somehow completely out of the water for a good 6 seconds, just swimming alongside these rocks a couple of yards ahead of me, but I was too in shock to take a picture. Even though I could have had a better picture, I'm still incredibly proud to have gotten this one! . . . . #exploregon #oregonexplored #jj_oregon #pnwonderland #pnw #iloveoregon #bestoforegon #bestoforegoncoast #bofo1k #oregon #oregoncoast #pnwcollective #pnwexplorations #westcoastbestcoast #oregonnw #traveloregon #oregonisawesome #conqueroregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwside #pnwisbeautiful #upperleftUSA #westernnature #coastexplorer #lostinoregon #cascadiaexplored #thepeoplescoast #oregoncoast #onlyinoregon #pnwroamers #oregonshores

The weekend is almost completely in sight!!
No matter how many times I go back to this place it will never get old. As a kid this was the place where I would imagine dinosaurs roaming or goblins hiding in the rocks. My imagination still runs wild when I come here, and so do the memories.
When the sun gives you one last wink at the end of the day...
Beautiful day at the Oregon Coast yesterday. Spent the day at Short Beach near Tillamook. Tried out some rock stacking. - - - - - - - - #beach #tillamook #oregoncoast #bestoforegoncoast #westcoast #summer #getoutside #hike #ocean #oregon #pnw #thegreatpnw #pdx #pnwlife #pnwonderland #summertime #driftwood #womenphotographer #dirt #sand #life #lifestyle #love #happiness #thisismyhappyplace
Never turn your back on the ocean. Especially at sunset, it's far too beautiful for that!

"Oh no, love, you're not alone You're watching yourself, but you're too unfair You got your head all tangled up, but if I could only make you care Oh no, love, you're not alone No matter what or who you've been No matter when or where you've seen All the knives seem to lacerate your brain I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain You're not alone. Just turn on with me, and you're not alone Let's turn on and be not alone Gimme your hands, 'cause you're wonderful..." -Bowie โœŒ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒŠ

This one. My adventure partner in life. A few weeks ago we went to Portland for the real royal wedding. We'd booked a couple of extra days there but had no plans for lodging or activities. When we picked up the rental car they offered us a 5-door Mazda. Cut to: us in the parking lot of Mountain Shop in Hollywood, Portland taking turns climbing into the back of the car to see if we'd fit. We did. And so we rented a couple of sleeping bags and headed west to the beautiful Oregon coast. On the way we tried to reserve a camping spot at a state park but the system wouldn't let us because of the late notice. We resolved to go and see anyway. When we arrived, we were greeted by a "campground full" sign but we decided to check to make sure. Lo and behold, the ranger had one spot left right on the sand dunes of the ocean beach. Lou came prepared for the wedding, not camping, so she tied on a pair of my jeans and we hit the beach to watch the sunset. That night we made a meal of roast corn and miso ramen over an open fire then climbed into our car for some shuteye. We've been so many strange and beautiful places together and every day I count my lucky stars that I found such a fun, strong, creative, adventurous playmate! . . . @canonusa 5Dmk2 40mm f2.8 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #oregoncoast #relationshipgoals #cannonbeach #relationship #couplegoals #bestoforegoncoast #traveloregon #relationshipquotes #oregon #outdoors #hiking #lovequotes #exploregon #oregonexplored #youroregon #couples #oregonnw #relationships #exploreoregon #girlfriend #bae #dating #bestoforegon #pacificocean #boyfriend #portlandnw #truelove #pacificnorthwest #dannythedp
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow." -Mary Anne Radmacher
Catch & release, or catch & keepโ€ฆ when youโ€™re sturgeon fishing on the Columbia River, it doesnโ€™t matter. The adrenaline rush & those hard fighting fish are what itโ€™s all about!

It's easy to feel small in this chaotic world we live in. Sometimes you need to do something to ground yourself. Do yourself a favor, pay some unsuspecting person a sincere compliment today. It can be your barista, co-worker, grocery store clerk or complete stranger, just pick someone and do it. You're about to feel really good when you see their face light up. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Just running around, chasing the light.
A path through the dunes after a rainstorm. I always love walking up the dunes from the beach, and suddenly the sound of the ocean becomes muffled and the wind is calm.
Swooping in. Was Lucky enough to catch this location at low tide. The tide pools were filled with marine life and itโ€™s amazing what you can find when you look hard enough. ___________________________________________________________ #oregon #cannonbeach #cannonbeachoregon #marinelife #seagull #westcoast #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #neverstopexploring #visitoregon #visitoregoncoast #travel #travelgram #travelinspo #travelphotography #pnw #cascadia #pacificnorthwest #explore #roadtrip #coastal #tidepools #lowtide #bestoforegon #bestoforegoncoast
