January Camping Visit to the Oregon Coast

It’d been ahwhile, probably a year or two, since I’d been out to the Oregon coast. This time I was headed for Seaside although we camped at Bud’s in Gearhart which neighbors seaside on the beach to the North. Again I was filling the role of staff surf photographer and again I won’t be posting the surfing shots only the lifestyles.

After driving 3 hours from Packwood on one of the most scenic drives I’d taken in awhile I landed in Gearhart and we immediately hopped on the bikes to go watch the sunset in Seaside. photo: Nia

Pour Over Coffee Camping

In the morning we woke up and boiled some water to make pour-over coffees which really hit the spot.

We checked some spots and ended up heading South to Short Sands beach to spend the day.
