Journal Entry:
Left Seattle with Amy. The Washington coast was a little bit of a let down, very little of Hwy 1 actually runs within sight of the ocean, and there is quite a bit of clear-cut visible.

The Oregon coast was spectacular. We stopped in Seaside to stretch our legs and ended up spending about 2 hours napping on the beach. The sun was incredible. We stayed at the Viking village in Newport. The clerk described the cottages as rustic. I think I'd use funky. Our floor (and walls and doorways) were about 10 degrees off normal, and not always in the same direction. It was cozy though, and quite reasonable.
