On a whim, hoping to make the most of our adventure, we decided to skip our flight and drive back up to Portland via Hwy 101. I, being the pragmatic non-spontaneous sort, had to let go of my planned agenda but in reality it all went off without a hitch - even finding cool places to stay (old town Eureka & Florence) along the way in the busiest time of the summer! What's not to love about staying in big old houses (a Victorian & a Craftsman) with no AC?! There were amazing sights the whole journey north from vineyards, to redwoods and some stunning rocky coast lines. Here's a few last scenes from our trip through northern California up the Oregon coast, back home to Portland.
