November on the Coast

I love visiting the Oregon Coast. I mean, anyone that has been there can understand why. My good friend Paul invited me to come to Portland with him for a few days to celebrate his birthday. Naturally, I agreed without hesitation. Our friend Alexa also tagged along for our weekend adventure.
With no real plan in place. We rented a car and piled in. 
This was one of those amazing trips where you don't know where you will be staying that night, or where you will be traveling to, aside from a general direction. 

The next three days were filled with waterfalls, coastal swims in the freezing rain, a herd of elk, and Voodoo Donuts.
