Moving into our little cabin, we knew there wasn’t a dishwasher already installed. We had imagined getting a countertop dishwasher and possibly placing it on top of the dryer but then quickly realized that the cabinet above the dryer did not have enough space for the d...

We woke up bright and early the day we were headed to Coquille (pronounced Coke-keel). The home next door to us was up for auction and although it had too many leans against it to make it an affordable property to purchase as a vacation rental, we were determined to se...

Newport is so far my favorite “beach town” on the Oregon Coast. It’s quaint and cute and has two really fun down town areas – the Nye Beach area and the historic downtown area off of the Yaquina Bay. I love to stay in the South Beach Campground just south of Newport. T...

If the Redwood Forest could talk, I imagine it would have all sorts of wise words of wisdom to impart. The regal trees stand what feel like miles above my head with circumferences as big around as a sedan. The feet of the Redwoods expand past their trunk size to give t...

Florence, Oregon is known as having the largest dune complex along the coast of the entire US. It’s home to lots of off-roading adventures, events, and tourists flock there for their off-roading fun. It also has a magnificently long shoreline with soft sand as far as t...

People travel from all over the world to experience Cape Arago in Charleston, Oregon. The beauty of its rocky cliffs and views as far as the eye can see make it one that is hard to surpass. A quick drive up past Sunset Bay will yield a very small drive way that opens i...

When I first heard there was a Sunset Bay in the Bay Area of Oregon, I was a little skeptical. To me, Sunset Bay sounded like a place that belonged in Hawaii, with warm waters and never-ending sunsets. I pictured hula girls swinging their hips in grassy skirts and a bi...

Lakeside, Oregon could be known as a small town with many lakes. For such a small town of only approximately 1700 people, Lakeside is the home to two lakes that make up the Tenmile Lakes, and Eel Lake “next door”. The lakes have many creeks, streams and waterfalls betw...

As you travel down Highway 101 in Oregon on the coast, you’ll see hundreds of signs for parkways, beach access, camping, scenic lookouts, and more. Many people miss most and have to pick and choose as they travel the Oregon Coast as there are far too many to see in a w...

About Me

Hi, I'm Blume! I recently moved to the Oregon Coast where I live in a tiny cabin, high up overlooking Tenmile Lake, surrounded by a rain forest on the Oregon Coast. It's like living in a tree house...
