From the moment we crossed her southern border back in July, Oregon has tugged at our heart-strings. From her rugged, wild coastline, wind-swept beaches, lovely lighthouses, and artistic bridges, to her funky coastal towns and bike-friendly cities, we have loved it all and we will be back.
Today, with somewhat heavy hearts, we turn our rig south. We have created some fabulous memories, reconnected with RV friends and met a few more along the way in this fascinating state.
I leave you with a slideshow of some of the beauty you will find if you travel to Oregon. If you have the chance to visit, DO NOT pass it by. Until we return, farewell Oregon.

I know we have seen most of these pictures before, but great to see them again. I hope that I can find a friend who will want to travel with me, up the coast to see all of the beautiful landscapes you have shared with us. Glad you enjoyed it so much and thanks for sharing your joy.
Thanks for the comment Joan and I hope you can find that friend. Oregon is not to be missed. 🙂
Jenny Patterson visited me last week here in Arizona. She says you are not at Yellowstone now. I tried you on fb, but found your account inactive. Hope everything is OK. I would love to go up the coast with you . Maybe next summer?
Yay! I’m back to getting email notices again when you post!
I’m glad I didn’t miss this one because you have some lovely shots of my favorite coast.
Hope to catch you on your next trip north. Y’all come back again soon….
We will and I will definitely look you up. Lucky you to live in Bandon. 🙂
I’m actually in Coquille… just 17 miles inland (following the Coquille River which empties into the sea at Bandon). Bandon’s notorious wind and fog had me back away a bit from living right on the coast, but it’s close enough to enjoy as often as I like.
Have a safe trip as you head South! I have a photo workshop scheduled for the end of January in Big Sur, so I’ll be headed in your direction then.
For some reason I thought you were in Bandon but certainly close enough to enjoy the beautiful coastline. 🙂
You probably got that impression because I visit and blog about Bandon so much. 🙂
Even though we didn’t have near the nice weather you did, we also fell in love with Oregon. Have fun on your trip south.
It is quite beautiful. Are you still out traveling or are you back in Canton Marsha?
Beautiful photos and very inspiring. Thanks for sharing…..safe travels !
Thanks Ingrid. Where are you now? Back home?
Yep, in CO. Was in New Orleans last week. Still too tired to write about it….lol. Story forthcoming eventually!
I have never been to New Orleans so will be anxiously awaiting your post. 🙂
LuAnn, the photos of Oregon are all beautiful, like being there with your adventures! Travel safe my dear friend, Penny 🙂 xx
Thanks Penny 🙂
Where are you guys right now?
Right now we are in Susanville, CA for a short stop, then on to Reno. We are planning to spend some time in Mammoth, enjoying the fall colors. I am sad, however, to be leaving Oregon. 😦
It is beautiful, sigh I miss it so. It is really barren up here in this part of se washington! 😦
Perhaps someday you will return. 🙂
For sure, I have lots of family in Oregon, but actually LuAnn, we are gearing up for a world wide trip (if finacially possible) next year so wish us luck! We want to meet other bloggers in other countries, We have already gotten so many invites, it’s just awesome and what a great experience for Christina’s children also! 🙂
That would be so amazing! I will be praying for this for you and your family. 😀
At this point a bit of a dream, but becoming more goal oriented with each passing day, so we’ll see, I would really love to meet you guys though, sometime later this year maybe? Penny 🙂
We have to be in Encinitas by Nov 1 to do some volunteer work. We will be working 3 days one week and 4 days the next and are planning to be there through February. Having said that we still can get away so perhaps we can figure out how to get together. Maybe I can head your direction. Let’s talk more about that.
Sounds like a plan, with maybe a little travel for each of us or … we can figure it out … how fun!
I would so love to meet you. 🙂
Ditto, something to look forward to! Yes! 🙂
You describe my feelings about Oregon so well. Thank you for the trip down memory lane.
We feel the same way and haven’t even seen the coast yet, we’ll save that for spring. We will be in California tomorrow, so long beautiful Oregon, until spring.
Wait till you see the coast. You may never want to leave! Safe travels dear friends. 🙂
We totally feel sad like you do. Have thoroughly enjoyed your posts thro’ Oregon these past few months. Even tho’ we stayed at many of the same places I learnt something new from every post of yours that I read. Looking forward to seeing ya in the mountains!
Since we use your blog posts extensively for our road map, we have learned a tremendous amount from the two of you. So grateful that our paths have crossed and we’ll be seeing you soon in the mountains. 🙂
Looks like paradise!
It’s an amazing state! 🙂
This too has been a wonderful travelogue. Sharp clear pictures and beautiful writing. Thanks. Have a great Winter wherever you land.
Thanks Gale. We will be in So. Cal most of the winter but will make our way towards Sedona later on, perhaps in March. I will keep you posted. Hope all is well. 🙂
Beautiful slideshow! We’re in Bandon this week and love it here! Will head back to SoCal mid-Oct, but haven’t picked a route yet. Looking forward to reading about your trip south.
We will be taking the 395 back down as we did pretty much the entire OR coast heading north. We have heard it is a beautiful drive and the colors should be spectacular. 🙂
Lovely pics…..and friends. I can see why it would be so hard to part ways….♥ paula
Thanks Paula. Yes, it is difficult to leave but the good news is, we can always return. 🙂
something else to look forward to! ♥
Thanks for creating the slide show. If you aren’t there in person pictures are a wonderful way of taking you there momentarily and giving you a taste for what you might want to go and see for yourself. We are headed to OR (north coast) Monday for a week. Will be camping at Nehalem Bay State Park.
Have a wonderful week Ardythe. Hope you enjoy OR as much as we did. 🙂
Gorgeous, Luann. So gorgeous. Watch out for me. I might steal your computer or wherever you hide your photo archives. Hehe. 😀
Oregon is gorgeous. But I’d be looking more forward to your California blog posts. Very exciting.
Thanks Rommel but my photos pale in comparison to yours. 🙂
Ahhh We’re going in circles. 😀 bwahahaha.
