The secret is out, Oregon is scenic, beautiful and it’s beaches are far more stunning than their reputation allows. Known for it’s douglas fir’s and variety of greens this state has something to offer to anyone – cities, culture, forests and an abundance of beautiful beaches.
The land where the green meets the blue has to be considered Oregon, you just feel it in the air in there, maybe it’s the months of rain it gets that washes everything away although it only showed me sunny days and the clean and uncrowded beaches, even on a long weekend. Maybe it’s the haze that settles on the landscape and blurs where the sea ends and the hills begin.
In 1859 Oregon became the 33rd state on Valentines Day and it’s hard not to fall in love with this state. Entering Portland through thick clouds on a Sunday morning we broke through the clouds to find hills of smothered in green trees. Coming into land a thought that ‘I was home’ had crossed my mind. Yes, Oregon felt very familiar from where I come from, the people are friendly and so welcoming that it’s no wonder that Portland’s population is rising.
