Oregon Trip!

We had a weekend trip to Oregon when my sister was here couple of weeks ago, we visited Portland and Cannon Beach, and the Seaside Area. It was more of a food trip because we just stuffed our faces with all of the yummy food that Oregon has to offer.  Based on my research a must stop is the famous Voodoo doughnuts (I was totally disappointed) and find nothing special about the place. The doughnuts are fun to look at (reminded me of Gordughs doughnuts from Austin Texas) but Gordughs is so much better, moist and (IMO) worth the sugar coma you’ll get. Another place we visited was the Thai restaurant POKPOK! I had read good reviews and even Giada De Laurentiis recommend the place for good authentic thai food. I totally loved their fish sauce chicken wings, it was just the right amount of fish sauce flavor!Not overpowering at all. I think I will go back to Portland just for their wings! I think my hubs and sis find it “OKAY”,I disagree with them!

Cannon Beach was fun but the water was too cold for me. We checked out the famous Haystack Rock and it was gorgeous as I expected. We had fun strolling in the fine sandy beach, enjoyed our left over Voodoo donuts, iced coffee and just people watching.

Last place to check out was Seaside.  It was super crowded though because they had a volleyball tournament when we visited. We only stayed for a couple hours, it was just too loud, crowded, and hot for me. I was really ready to go home and see my Riley Puss after not seeing him for 2 days! It was a fun weekend with my sis and Hubs.
