Warrenton, OR – Florence, OR
Having followed the Columbia River to the ocean, I traveled with my friend Stephanie down the Pacific coast from the northernmost point of Oregon, to somewhere near the middle (Florence, to be precise). While it looks foggy, I was assured that in fact it was extremely nice weather for the Oregon coast. Actually, the sun shone on us most of the day, and the water wasn’t even too cold on our bare legs (once we got used to it)! We camped at Tillicum campground in the Siuslaw National Forest, listening to the waves crash on the beach. Tuesday morning, after a cup of coffee in Florence, we headed inland to Eugene, through the coastal range, dripping with mist. Lovely!
