Summer weekend bliss: Beach and berry-picking

We did last weekend right. I'm still on a bit of a high after two days of balanced fun and relaxing! With days like that, every weekend would feel like a holiday weekend.

The forecast was for the 100's in the Portland area for Saturday, so we did what a lot of other folks did and went to the coast. We left around 8:00 AM (we were already sweating in the house) and didn't get back till bedtime. The weather was absolutely perfect at the coast, and we went hiking, played on the beach (literally), visited our favorite places, and even went to a movie.

We hiked at Oswald West State Park, just north of Manzanita, and we did a beautiful and comfortable hike out to a point where we looked out over the ocean and saw a whale jump! Then we laid on the beach in Cannon Beach and husband built a moat system while I read a book. Then we made it up to Seaside for the evening. The whole day was just pure fun, and without the stress of packing for an overnight or camping trip for just one night.

Then, on Sunday morning we went to our fave berry farm and picked raspberries, blackberries, marionberries, and a few blueberries--although the blueberries aren't quite ready yet so we'll have to go back!

I know the 4th of July holiday is coming up, but this past weekend is hard to top!

  1. Coastal raspberries. Everything about that just sounds somehow perfect.
