When Macy and I had to scratch from our eventing debut I was determined not to stay home and mope about it. I called up a friend and asked if she’d want to go to the Oregon Coast with me. Luckily she was game!
So the dogs and I hopped in the car and headed to Portland! We picked up my friend and headed to the ocean.
If you haven’t been to the Oregon coast, you really should go. It’s stunning, and quiet, and super duper dog friendly. Siri ran the length of 3 different beaches and both dogs had an absolute blast.
We ate some amazing seafood, I got to run on the beach, and was constantly walking around saying “look how pretty that is.” While it wasn’t the same feeling as running cross country on horseback, it was really great.
Our last night in Portland we went to Stella Taco, a fun street taco joint and honored my favorite dog by eating delicious tacos and drinking margaritas.
It was a great trip all around and definitely made not going to an event bearable.
