Every once in a while it’s good to disappear. To pull on your coziest fleece, to tie on your sneakers, to escape into the woods or underneath the covers or anywhere that gives you a rest from the sameness of your usual days. If nothing else, disappearing reminds you that your usual days don’t really have to be so usual. For the past week, James and I have been exploring the Oregon coast from our perch at my brother-in-law’s family beach house. There have been checkers played with beach stones, big pots of fresh tomato sauce on the stove, breathless hikes, and foggy, spruce-filled forests.
If you’d like to follow along, I’ve been posting instagrams when I’ve been able to find a signal. If not, I’ll be back in this space next week. Refreshed, renewed, and ready to begin again with more breaks for reading good books and beating James at board games.
Cheers to disconnecting.
I agree- I did a bit if that on Vancouver island- but already could do it again! Great photos!
It looks amazing there, happy vacationing!
What lovely photos. I'm heading to the beach this weekend, so this post totally gets me in the right head space. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

i've been dying to visit oregon- and even more so now! i've love your and your husband's instagrams, so perfect!
I was in Portland and Oregon wine country this Spring and I would've loved to have explored the coast. Your photos are gorgeous — enjoy being unplugged!

Your vaca pics have been amazing! Makes me want to so desperately escape!
I'm so jealous! I especially like the pictures of the water; they make me want to wade out into the ocean and go swimming, even though I rarely swim! Have fun on your break!
Great photos, makes me wanna travel again even though I just returned home. 🙂
I want to be there! It's gorgeous! Vacations are always a good thing (bonus points for being able to disconnect)! These photos are beautiful!

Looks beautiful, and in some ways very similar to where we spent our vacation!
Absolutely stunning pictures! The more I see of the PNW, I have the urge to go! One day!! Enjoy your time off! Kristina x
Ahh it looks lovely there! It reminds me so much of Vancouver Island which is where I grew up. 🙂

Looks incredible. Hope you have a great time!
This looks like heaven on earth! Such a wonderful and beautiful place!
Looks like an amazing time in the pacific coast! Enjoy the rest of your vacation 🙂
unspeakably beauty-full. wow.
The pacific northwest is so incredibly stunning and awe inspiring! Are you all close enough to Florence to make a day trip? Those gigantic dunes are so rad, one of the coolest things I saw on a route 1 road trip ages ago.
Erin, publish a coffee-table book of your photos and I will be your first drooling customer. You have a gift, girl.
I am from Oregon and currently living in Arizona. AZ has its charms too, but all these lovely OR photos are making me quite homesick!
