Salishan at Gleneden Beach, Oregon
The beaches in Oregon are truly dreamy. No matter which area along the coast you drive you are certain to see picturesque scenes of vast sandy beaches. I've never before seen beaches where the sandy shore travels so far out before you even touch water. It's an incredible sight to see, and, it's cold. After the beach walks we drove back to our hotel room, turned on the fireplace, and sat on a couch facing the sliding glass doors. Although it was very cold outside, you have no choice but to open the doors and listen to waves crash against the whale cove rock formations. We slept with the slider doors open all night and the fireplace going. I think of that hotel room in Depoe Bay almost daily.
