Everything We Did, Saw, and Ate in Oregon… to the Best of My Recollection

I thought that the best way to summarize our trip was in photos and links to some of the fab places we visited while we were on vacation in Oregon. It has taken me an entire week to put this post together and I am still not sure I remembered them all. We went from Astoria, Cannon Beach, Hood River and finally Portland. The views were scenic, the air crisp and the food and drinks were ever flowing. Here is everything  that I loved and you will love about the great state of Oregon.
