Oregon Trip: Brookings, the last city on my coastal tour

From Coos Bay to Brookings is about 1.5-2 hrs of driving. However, The southern coastline is so beautiful that it took me about 6-7 hours. Click this to see the pictures.

On my way down I thought about the top 5 thoughts in my head on this trip so far:

5) I wish I could stay on THIS beach a little bit longer (after chilling on the beach for a few hours)

4) What else is there to eat...typically 1 hour after I've left the restaurant

3) I wish I had my suby

2) I wish I had my suby ;)

1) The Oregon Coastline is so fuckin beautiful. One of the most beautiful I've seen; only 2nd to the Chilean Coastline of Patagonia

I had dinner in Brookings and was talking about my itinerary with the bartender. After talking to her, I came back to the hotel to cancel ALL my hotel reservations and make all new ones. Good thing too, because according to her my second week in Oregon would not have had the luster the first week did. In fact, I would have dreaded it.

On a sidenote, courtesy the helpful bartender: Crescent City, CA; Brookings, OR; Port Orford, OR. These cities are all 27 miles away from eachother (going from South to North). The reason: This is the distance that a team of horses can be led in 1 day.

So after making my adjustments, I quickly drove back up to Cape Sebastien to watch the sunset. I walked up and down the beach looking for the perfect perching spot. I applauded the sun...good job, sun!
