The Perfect Oregon Coastline Getaway/Hideaway
I am a California who stays a week in Summer and at Christmas on the Oregon Coastline. Have stayed in several towns from Manzanita down to Bandon. Pacific City is like finding the perfect girlfriend. And no one will find you here. Easy drive down through Salem and across a lonely isolated highway with a bunch of 1 lane bridges. You have to KNOW Pacific City is there. I found the Murray's house while jogging on a rainy Christmas Eve. It is so perfectly located to the Dune Boardwalk that takes you up
over the Dunes in about 2 minutes and drops you and your glass of wine right down onto a beach to die for. You'll discover how unusual the sandscape is but you'll immediately see Haystack Rock
and as the Sun sets behind it each night you won't be alone from the top of the Dune Station. If you
run out of wine, another sunset watcher will share. Nearby is the totally fun Pelican Inn. Most everyone around you enjoying the Gigantic Gotta Climb Dune and Haystack Rock out in the surf has to drive back home to Portland or Salem that night after their daytrip while you simple walk down the street 5 minutes back to ShorePine Beach House. You gotta find the tiniest breakfast spot in the world. 5 tables
across from the gas station. To die for. Easy daytrip up to the Tillamook Cheese Factory or Oceanside or down the coast for lunch. But you'll always want to be back to this house, if you ever left in the first place. Watching old Alfred Hitchcock movies on the DVD player. sitting out behind on
the perfectly placed private deck or up in the Read a Book loft. or listening to some Smooth Jazz off
your laptop. and wondering.......should I retire here? Shore Pine is a house.....Pacific City is a tiny
Oregon Coastline town, hideaway, I think about, dream about, nearly everyday back home in California, counting the 6 months down to my next stay. always wondering if I should just buy a 1 way ticket.
