We’ve been coming here at least once a year to enjoy the sunsets, the beach, the jacuzzi tub and some us time. Our favorite place to stay at on the Oregon Coast.
Hanging out with Nicky, Dan and the little dude…

Spending our Saturday afternoon testing out beds inside Sears - that's just how we roll
Big plates of yummy Vietnamese food
Plus this awesome cream puff

Scenes from our Saturday visit in Seattle…
Arrived to the Everett train station at 9:40, just on time for our 9:52am departure on the Amtrak Cascades.
However, a few minutes beforehand I received the first text notification that the train would be delayed until 11:06am.
Second text notification delayed until 11:26am.
Actual time of departure: 11:43am, almost two hours of waiting. Instead of arriving in Portland at 3:05, now this was looking closer to 5:00pm…
Arriving into Everett... delayed due to snow!
Waiting inside King Street Station.. Amtrak decided to halt our train in Seattle and continue it as a different train number, departing at 2:10pm.
For Portland bound passengers inconvenienced by this new time schedule (arriving around 6pm), Amtrak offered an alternative... this bus, which they said would leave around 1pm and get us into Portland by 4pm
But the bus didn't leave until 1:30pm, and then we got the snow
The snow was slushy so it was slow going
It was heaviest around Centralia, when the road was reduced to one lane.
After almost 8 hours on transit, we finally made it to Portland by 5pm
Scenes on board the train…
We really liked our seats... Big window, generous legroom, comfy seat and right in front of the luggage rack for easy access to our bags
Business class, featuring more legroom and complimentary drinks. On this train, our regular coach seats were similar and at the cheaper ticket price
