I really wanted to share some of the photos I took whilst away in America so I have divided them into three posts as there were so many and it seemed a shame just to have them on my computer. The first post includes pictures from Oregon, San Francisco and Santa Cruz.
We stayed with family whilst in Oregon so got to see quite a bit of this gorgeous green state as they were really excited to show us around where they live. They lived really near Mount Hood and, despite the wet weather, it was so fun driving around seeing local landmarks such as Multnomah Falls and Hood River.
We were also very lucky to have family in San Francisco too and they were kind enough to show us round the city for a few days and take us to see things we wouldn’t have been able to get to very easily ourselves. First, we went to China Town for Dim Sum, then to the Golden Gate Bridge and finally to see the Giant Redwoods in Muir Woods.
Santa Cruz is the perfect American beach town complete with sea otters, surfers and a boardwalk themepark so for this part of the trip we were very content just to wander about and soak up the Californian sun.
