This was the warmest day this spring in Salem and thanks to Ivana’s and my host family, one of the best days of our lives.
We started our day with breakfast, and strawberries of course. Our first goal was to go to Mary’s Peak, a place from which we could see the ocean , Willamette valley and other mountains. It sounds like a heaven on earth. We drove for two hours to get there and when we almost reached the top of mountain, we saw snow. Even though it was such a sunny day, there was so much snow that we could not pass through any further. That was only 2 miles away from our final destination and we were very disappointed. But that didn’t stop our host family from making this day perfect. We took some pictures on the snow and we decided our new destination. I think you’ll never guess what was our next plan.
It was to go on to the coast!! From mountains on one side to the Oregon coast on another.
The tour began in Cape Foulweather, at a place known for Captain Hook. In a little shop, Ginny bought rings for me and Ivana and we love them. Al bought postcards for us so we will never forget this trip. Little things to remind us on this wonderful day.
On our way to the next destination we stopped in Nepoe Bay, and then we went on dinner at Fogarty Creek. The food was so delicious and view on the coast was amazing. After we filled our bellies, we went on the beach nearby and wrote our names in the sand. We took some really nice pictures there.
Our last destination was Jaft beach in Lincoln City. It was too good to describe. We were playing with the waves; we ran away from them and we even got wet. We watched seagulls and seals in the water that were only like 15 meters away from us. They were so cute. People were coming with their families or friends, they made beach fires and really enjoyed spending time on the beach, and I was really jealous that we couldn’t stay any longer. It was late already and we had to go home. On our way home Ivana and I sang. We never sing in public, so you can imagine how happy we were.
Thank you Al and Ginny for making this day perfect!
