Be sure to check out my recap from Day 1 here!
The second day of our trip started with a trip to Voodoo Doughnuts because doughnuts. They were every bit as delicious as they look and I thought they would be after seeing them on numerous food tv shows. Per usual, we don’t compromise well so we bought a lot. We ended up getting the voodoo doll (stuffed with fantastic raspberry jam), maple bacon bar, peach fritter with cream cheese frosting, Homer Simpson strawberry and the Portland cream.
We ate a couple doughnuts in the car on our drive to Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast. Let me just say wow! This little town is not only quaint but equally adorable.
Of course we had to take a million pictures and walk along the beach. The scale of the photos doesn’t allow you to see how big Haystack rock. It’s huge! I even found a couple whole sand dollars that had washed up on shore. They are perfect.
Words and pictures cannot describe how incredible this place truly is. We will definitely be back to visit Cannon Beach. Cutest beach town ever.
After Cannon Beach it was on to Astoria. Astoria was way cute and the perfect place to grab a late lunch. Before we found lunch we found the house from The Goonies movie first. It’s hilarious because Astoria is such a sleepy little town, but the homeowners have had to post large signs close to the house warning trespassers that the police will get called if they see you looking at the house.
I snapped this picture from our rental car. The house featured from the movie is on the left. Yea, I live life on the edge.
The Fort George Brewery was the best. The building is really old and very industrial. Also, the view was incredible. We were able to see the Columbia River and across to Washington state.
Our waiter was adorable and brought us a couple tasters to try. I ended up loving the fruit sour and the spruce ale. The spruce ale doesn’t contain hops at all and is made with spruce tips from the forest instead. It was super crisp and refreshing.
After all these carbs we decided to check out the Astoria Tower. We didn’t go all the way to the top, but we didn’t have to. These are the pictures from the viewpoint. Simply spectacular in every direction.
And just like that we headed back to our hotel in Vancouver, Washington.
