I got a little behind on posting, hope you enjoy our coastal trip in Southern Oregon.
If you’re traveling the Southern Oregon coast, you must explore the 12-mile section of the Samuel Boardman State Scenic Corridor. From Brookings to Gold Beach, there are rocky shorelines, natural bridges, and dramatic scenery.
We decided to stop and beachcomb at the beautiful Miller Creek Beach. This little one is definitely a toes-in-the-sand kind of girl ~ I think she may also have saltwater in her veins.
Why waste hours on the internet, playing video games, or watching YouTube when adventure and exploration awaits on a barely touched coastline. This is how kids should spend their time (and Grandma’s, too).

The kids spotted crab bodies and pieces of sand dollars as we walked the length of the shore. It is a blessing to be able to share these times with my grandchildren ~ I hope they always remember our travels together.
The viewpoint to the Natural Bridge is a 30-second walk from the parking area. A steep trail leads down to the arch. The kids wanted to try it, but we turned around after the grandson (in flip-flops) nearly slipped off the side. The trail is narrow and steep. Photo tip: opt for the morning to avoid the sun in your lens.
Our last stop for the day, the rocky and beautiful Harris Beach. Sadly, there was a water advisory in effect due to a bacteria spill. That didn’t stop some families from allowing their children to play in the water. Gross. It’s human waste people.
The spill didn’t stop us from having fun and enjoy our last dose of vitamin sea. With rock formations galore, we spent our time scrambling, climbing, faux whale watching and being in awe of Mother Nature.
Next, the end of the trip. Join me for a morning hike on the Oregon Redwood Trail and breakfast with the family at the famous, Samoa Cookhouse in Eureka, California.
