A Boast About the Coast!

Oh the Oregon Coast Trail is simply magnificent! We have been out for three nights and are loving every minute of it.  It is a beautfiul trail that leads us to gorgeous beaches and through rainforesty mountains. 

Haystack Rock

One thing we love about the beaches is that every other family we run into has a dog =) There are a ton of happy dogs everywhere, running free and meeting other happy dogs. 

Our second night on the trail- a shelter- woohoo!

Yesterday we walked through Cannon Beach and picked up some more food. Cannon Beach has a couple really amazing art galleries and we had a great time taking a look before we continued on our hike.

At low tide, both humans and fun-loving dogs can cross the cape

Today we are in Manzanita where we will return to beach walking on our way past Tillamook, home of Oregon’s famous dairy-heirs.

…and sometimes our backyard looks like this!

 We hope to get a new camera battery soon  so we can send more beautiful pictures, but for now we will keep updating with the Blackberry! Thanks for following,

  1. I wish my backyard looked like yours :)!
    Lots of love!!! Maia

  2. I think that every time life gets too tough, I am going to ask myself “WHAT WOULD BLINK LOVE DO?” You guys enjoy the great trail for a change, it looks beautiful.

  3. Glorious pics and you deserve to finally have some hiking which allows you to take it all in rather than agonzing struggle to stay alive and not lost! Woo Hoo!

  4. Glad to hear things are going so well! Speaking of happy dogs, I was fortunate enough to spend the afternoon with a wonderful Cowboy Charles… he’s living the good life, to be sure! He and his favorite seven-month-old human spent most of the afternoon playing with a pile of baby toys… he’s so incredibly gentle. So we’re sending hellos and tons of hugs and kisses from all of your Charlotte fan base, Cowboy Charles included! Keep the updates coming!

  5. It is so wonderful to hear that you have had several days of good hiking for a change! As always, your pictures and writings are just incredible. Love you, Blink Team!!
