Walking the long path to the beach at Gearhart, Oregon

Walking the long path to the beach at Gearhart, Oregon

Gearhart, Oregon, is one of those sweet little seaside towns you can’t get enough of:  gray shingled houses, climbing roses over picket fences, small cafe filled with the smells of homemade bread, and a long walk through tall grasses that leads you to a pristine beach.

But for the full Gearhart effect, sit on a bench nestled in the grasses and let the wind carry you away.

  1. Looks si relaxing. I love the Oregon Coast and take any chance to go back.

  2. Touring NH says:

    I’d love to sit there, feeling the wind and letting it blow away my stresses.

    • And that’s exactly what I did. Someone quite thoughtful (city planners, I guess) set up nice benches right in the middle of all that grass. I just sat there, stared at the sky, and wished we were spending more time there.
