Portland Day 4 + travel to a beach

Right now Jay is laying on the couch on the bottom level of our tugboat house. Today we enjoyed lots of laughs, good food, a gorgeous day on the beach and I’m enjoyed the sounds of the Columbia River with all of the windows open from the second floor of the tughouse.

We had a late brunch at Tasty n sons that was AMAZING! Tasty potatoes, sweet biscuts, French toast and a biscut bfast sandwich with fried chicken.!

Cannon beach – about 1.5 hours west of Portland

We drove through the wilderness – winding roads, about 1,600 ft elevation at the highest point and huge trees. Seriously I cannot believe how many and how enormous the trees are in and around Portland. We spent a good chunk of time taking Polaroids at the beach, watching dogs fetch driftwood in the waves and little kids frolic in the icy cold water. We walked up and down the streets near cannon beach enjoying touristy shops and some ice cream. Our ride back into Portland was not as nice we hit lots of traffic and were whiney that we had missed our designated nap hour!

We also had a late dinner at Beast which was amazing! They have family style seating and only two seatings per night. I’m to sleepy to explain all of the dishes but just know that Jay and I ranked this meal in the top few of all time.
