We headed out to Neskowin on the Oregon coast last week for a quick getaway, to escape the heat and celebrate our anniversary. It’s always a refreshing reset to listen to the surf, watch the changes of the tides and the play of fog along the coast, and just to see that flat horizontal line in the distance (although I did note the absence of islands).
After exploring the Ghost Forest and tide pools at low tide, we hiked nearby Cascade Head, a Nature Conservancy Preserve that I heard about last year from an elder friend who had worked for the Oregon Department of Forestry. It was an ambitious day, requiring more recovery time than in our younger days, but paying off with stunning views of another piece of the Oregon coastline.
