With our 'get up and go' days being numbered (12 weeks until Baby Moe is due!), I've been anxious to get out and explore as much as possible. And when I saw last weekend's temps were going to be in the 60s, I was even more convinced I wanted to shake up our normal weekend routine.
Sunday morning, we headed west toward the Oregon coast for a little hike and some fresh air. I chose Sweet Creek Falls because it wasn't too far from Eugene (45 min or so) AND it was close to the beach, which we rarely visit, but often calls my name.
The Sweet Creek trail follows the creek and the falls for a little over a mile with gorgeous views around almost every corner. While it wasn't a challenging hike, it was some serious nature eye candy.
After our little hike, we headed another 20 minutes to the coast where we ate sandwiches on the beach and I walked along getting my feet cold and sandy.
If given the time, I would probably walk on the sand for a few hours, but after 20 min or so, I turned around so we could head back to Eugene.
If you live in Oregon, what are your favorite hikes? Or what do you do when you want to shake up your usual routine?
