one last drive up the coast.

We checked out of the Old Town Inn around 10:30 and got breakfast at this little place across the street. It sucked. Then we drove ten minutes down the road to the Sea Lion Cave. There weren’t any sea lions in the cave, which sucked. But there were a crap ton on the edge of the water.

After the caves, was our last drive up the west coast. It was equally as beautiful as southern California, just significantly colder. We stopped to see the Devil’s Punchbowl and got to see some whales!

A whale!!

We had to head inland to get to Portland, so we had to say good-bye to the beautiful scenery and say hello to pretty Portland.

Obviously stopped to see some Christian Grey spots. 
&& then we stopped for some cupcakes

After our snack we went to the top of Portland to get a cool view.

We left Portland around 18:00. I really liked it there. A very quite but super cute little city.

After making it to Washington && checking into our motel (which for $40 was really nice) we had another stay in & eat pizza hut while falling asleep with it in bed night. Tomorrow we get to see Mount Saint Helen’s && head to Seattle.

Our path is set

Our path is set for our footsteps to follow. I cannot believe we leave in a couple of days!

So much left to do, so little time.

I added a picture our itinerary that I wrote down in my sketchbook journal. If anyone has any suggestions of where else to go or anything you can think of please let me know!
