Drive through Seattle, Portland, down the Coast to Crescent City, CA (Post 3)

We stayed overnight in Florence which was a great choice.  Right in the middle with only a few more hours to reach our destination in Crescent City, CA…  

We took many pictures along the way and stopped to see the seals at Newport Beach and also visit the Undersea Gardens and the aquarium.

Drive through Seattle, Portland, down the Coast to Crescent City, CA (Post 2)

Moving on to Portland and the Oregon Coast – Such a gorgeous drive through the mountains and the coast is just as beautiful. 

The coast drive is a bit scary though with steep mountains and ravines and winding roads and lots of fog…  There were times I got very nervous especially if I had someone tailgating me down a long zigzagging road…  For my mom’s sake, had to keep my composure… 

I did make many stops along the way to take pictures and to let those speedy drivers pass me…  Not a care in the world and I was not going to let anyone spoil my mood… Crazy people in this world…

Drive through Seattle, Portland, down the Coast to Crescent City, CA (Post 1)

This drive had been on my bucket list for some time and finally this year it happened…  It was the most amazing travel I’ve had in a long time…  I was not in a hurry to get to any one particular place even though I did have all the hotels booked along the way… No trouble or worries and specially, no stress…

Downtown Seattle was lovely, but you need to be in shape for the long and hilly streets…  Our legs ached for days…  Mind you, we got used to it, but by the time we were starting to feel some type of normalcy, we moved on…

Lastly, Mom and I – My travel buddy…  Amazing strength at 80.  Had her hiking all over the place…  Woman never slowed down…  It’s sad to say, she’s in better shape than I am…

 

 I will be in the middle of a close and moving.  I’m also disconnecting my cable and WiFi until the move is over and I’m settled in my new place.  Taking some time off and I’m not sure if I’ll have time at work to read or post blogs.  I’ll miss all those great posts…  Out for about three weeks…
