How I Spent My Summer Vacation: Sarah Cruickshank
LMPR is throwing it back to that perennial school day assignment of, “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.” In the first of a three part series Account Manager, Sarah Cruickshank, revisits her summer road trip to the scenic Oregon coast.
Among several weekends away in 2015, my one big vacation was a road trip through Oregon – a holiday I eagerly anticipated. While not my first time in this beautiful state, the 10-days I spent journeying through Portland, Salem, McMinnville, and Troutdale – with a final stop in Seattle, Washington – were certainly some of my favourite. The food, scenery, and countless activities all contributed to an unforgettable time away – one I’ll cherish for a long time to come.
See some highlights from my journey, below.
We made some strange new friends in our one night in Portland.
Enjoyed some (unplanned) beach time in Pacific City, Oregon.
Who knew that Oregon boasts its very own “Cruickshank Road”?!
Just one example of the hundreds of original artworks that adorn the walls at the McMenamins Hotel Oregon in McMinnville, Oregon.
Edgefield is, without question, my new favourite vacation destination.
The famous “red door” leading to one of Edgefield’s many scenic gardens.
Room 215 is widely regarded as the most haunted room in Edgefield. Also where I lay my head for my stay! Lucky for me, no ghost sightings this time.
On last hurrah at the Jay’s game in Seattle before heading back to Vancouver.
