We originally planned to be in Portland for Ben’s birthday, but since we spent an extra day in Seattle, we were behind on schedule a bit, and had to settle for sleepy Cannon Beach & the Nahalem Oregon area for his big day. We went to a really great pizza place, Pizza a’fetta where we ordered a delicious pizza to go… then we headed to the beach where we found a nice patch of grass for a little pizza picnic. It was a relaxing afternoon.
Afterwards, we headed to nearby Nehalem where we found a campground called Nehalem Falls. It was in a really fun forest that was very similar to the fairy forest we hiked in Mt Rainier.
