I'm getting a little bit nostalgic for my youth growing up in the northwest. I just saw a friend that I've not seen in about 15 years took his family to Pacific City, Oregon and that got me thinking about how we did a couple of vacations growing up at different spots in Oregon. However the most vivid memory was our trip to Florence, Oregon when we took a trip to the Sea Lion Caves. Not sure what sticks out the most about that, maybe just the calmness of the Pacific Ocean, maybe the saltwater smell and the cool temperatures, maybe it was being able to feed the sea lions themselves? I don't know, but it was good times and I'm thinking that I might want to take a road trip up there and visit the Northwest this summer at take maybe a 14-day driving trip up there, that would be a good spot to stop.
