Cape Kiwanda Road Trip

Today’s blog post is part two of my road trip to Cape Kiwanda in Oregon last December. Part 1 was sharing the Oregon waterfalls that we visited in the Columbia River Gorge. Pop over to check out that post if you haven’t already.

I had not been to the Oregon coast for about 10 years, so I jumped on the opportunity to go to Cape Kiwanda (which is at Pacific City) when I was asked. It was kind of a last minute trip. We rented a home by the beach, which was perfect.

My friend invited a few of his photography friends to join us there and it ended up being a really great couple of days…I made so many new friends.  🙂  My favourite part of the whole trip was having a fire (and eating Pop Tarts) at the beach in the evening.

Sunrise and sunset are so beautiful at Cape Kiwanda, so I suggest that you make sure you are at the beach during these times. You can drive vehicles on the beach and have fires, which was fun.

I have to thank my mom for letting me borrow her brand new Subaru, which only had 200 km on it, to take there. I brought it back with 1700 km and full of sand. Sorry mom!  🙂

I hope you enjoy this video. The Oregon coastline is a beautiful place and this video allows you to see it a bit better than with just photos.

A special shout-out to Braedin Toth for the amazing photos and video. You really need to check out his YouTube page, too.  ?

    That sounds like a really fun trip! I love that you could drive on the beach – most of the beaches here won’t allow people to drive on them.

    You end up in the most awesome looking fun places. Plus who doesn’t love going to the beach let along getting to build a fire and maybe spend the night. Great looking jeans you have on there.
