Goonies, Cannon Beach, Multnomah, Horsetail Falls and Poplars...

Can you visit Astoria, OR without at least visiting the house from Goonies? My parents probably could have done without.... They humored me... Next visit I'm visiting all the sites. I may even throw in some sites from Free Willy and Kindergarten Cop. What an incredible place...

The neatest part about this house, besides when I screamed in the driveway "Brandon don't you dare come home without your brother, or I'll commit hari Krishna..." "That's hari Kari, Ma." Just kidding... You can hear the sea lions bark, and they have the most incredible view. No wonder the goonies wanted to save it!

So amazing!

How beautiful is this building. Love the textures and colors.

We stopped by Cannon Beach, which was beautiful as always. I remember it kind of took my breath away when I saw this as a child fog rolled away and I thought it was a giant ship coming at us. I should have brought my camera, all I had was my iPhone. The pictures still turned out okay.


As we were walking back to the car, the sun came out. I'm going to look for real estate listings and move here. Immediately. Drew can come if he wants.....

My parents know how to make the most of a road trip, and know all the hot spots to see. A quick side trip to Multnomah Falls. Reminded me of Europe. All the green! It was really incredible, a must see.

Bark and moss.... The texture....

Wet and beautiful.

A road trip with these views? Yes please.

Just down the road was Horsetail Falls. Next time I want to take more time here and hike around. We,we're trying to make it home by 1 AM. So it was a quick stop.


Perfectly charming.

This poplar farm is so incredible. Pictures will never do it justice. Oh travel.... You complete me.
