Sometimes I forgot how lucky we are to be Oregonians.
Some of the country's prettiest beaches and mountains are just a short drive away.
Back in November Ryan and I ventured to Bandon, a small beach town on the southern coast of the state.
It wasn't a short drive, but it was a beautiful one.
Pretty scenery, walks through Old Town, a Game Park with baby cats, some of my favorite seafood, the best candy store I've found to date, and cozy beachside fires.
You're not too shabby, Bandon.
