Guys. Maybe it’s because I’m currently in the Nevada desert, but I am missing the Pacific Northwest. Sure, the desert is a must see, but for anything longer than a few days, I’d gladly pass.
The Pacific Northwest is where you want to spend your summer. I’m just saying. Not Portland or Seattle but the smaller towns along the coast. It’s perfectly lovely in August.
I’m so glad we were able to spend so much time there this summer. Warm but not hot days, cool nights that often require a sweatshirt are just the best. Beautiful green forest, breath taking coastline, it’s perfectly lovely in all its Twilight Vampire glory.
There’s hiking and beaches right next to each other. Long bike rides along coastal scenes are magical. I’m pretty sure that if I had to pick a summer retirement destination, the Pacific Northwest is where I’d hang.
If you haven’t been, go visit! It’s spectacular.
