BC: On towards a new adventure!

FC: The Coastal Wonders of Oregon | By: Chrystina Jacobson

1: Dedicated to my mom who loves Oregon even more than I do

2: My mom and I were going down to Oregon to visit my grandparents over the summer of 2011. My grandma asked me if there was anything that I wanted to see while we were visiting...I wanted to see the Oregon coast. Oh, and The Goonies house and the Aquarium or course.

3: We arrived in Eugene and drove home. The next day, our adventure would begin.

4: Astoria! | First stop...

5: Our first night we stayed in Astoria, which is the farthest north city along the Oregon coast. Across the bridge is Washington! | My cousin, Morgan | My mom | Me!

6: The Goonies! | The Goonies was filmed in Astoria. The local jail was turned into a museum as well. I had to see it because The Goonies is one of my favorite movies...ever.

7: Data's clothes! | The actual sign that was in the movie! | My cousin, Morgan posing as a criminal | Me posing as a criminal

8: There were lots of events and people around because Astoria was celebrating a 200 year anniversary of becoming a community.

9: The Flavel house: a historic house of Astoria's founder

10: That same day we crossed the Columbia river over to Washington and visited a lighthouse on the coast.

11: The lighthouse gave a great view of Long beach, Washington.

12: Fort Stevens ship wreck

13: Once we crossed the bridge back to Astoria, we hit the road and started our journey south.

14: We also stopped to see Fort Stevens bunker and walk around the ruins of what war left along the coast. | My cousin likes making faces at the camera.

15: This big pit was used for the large machine guns

16: Fort Clatsop was a Lewis and Clark settlement during the journey they took to the West coast. This fort is near Astoria on the way south along the Oregon coast. | This man was demonstrating how to shoot a musket

17: My mom and cousin walking through the camp constructed of log cabins.

18: The next stop we made was Cannon beach near Seaside. It is very famous because of the Haystack rock that has been featured in magazines and movies | we saw this really cool sand castle on the beach! | Cannon Beach

20: Cape Mears

21: At Cape Mears there was a Sitka spruce octopus tree! The tree has 8 trunks!

22: We drove through Tillamook, Oregon and ate some cheese and jerky. We also went on a tour of the factory and tried some fresh ice cream. | Morgan | Me!

23: I Cheese!

24: We arrived in Newport and stayed the night in a nice hotel on the beach for our final night on the road.

25: Our gorgeous view from the balcony!

26: The Newport Aquarium!

27: The next morning we went to the Aquarium and I found a turtle sculpture!

28: The Wax museum | We also went to the wax museum that same day, and met Johnny Depp, Yoda, and lots of other characters.

29: We also walked around the seafood market and ate lunch. After our long day we were ready to be on the road heading home to Eugene. | This man was playing the violin but had it set up to an amplifier and sound morph program so it was really cool to hear.

30: After a long and fun four days we drove to one more town, Florence, and finally headed back inland toward Eugene. | Lighthouse in Florence

31: My trip down the Oregon coast was really fun and also really important to me. I got to spend time with my cousin who I don't see but every two to three years. I also got to see where my own mom got to go when she was a kid. It was a family event when my great grandma took her grandkids to the coast and I felt like I got to experience that with my own grandma.
