Last Saturday night a friend of mine on Instagram tagged me in a post.  It was a photo of Northwest Travel Magazine with a cover image of a little boy playing in the sand with an Airstream in the distance.

She continued:

“Please tell me this is you or else I’ll be on dish duty tonight.”

I had to smile (big) because that was my photo and she recognized it.  I had no idea the magazine was out on newsstands yet so of course the next morning I had to drive to the store to see it for myself – and there it was.   Thank you Susy for letting me know xoxo

The article that my photo represents is about traveling in the Pacific Northwest over Spring Break with a focus on RVing.  My favorite mention in the piece is the recommendation of visiting Jetty Fishery in Oregon. We actually stayed there shortly after I took the cover image for this magazine.  I truly believe that Jetty Fishery is a hidden gem and if you are a fan of dungeness crab, this is the place for you.  You can either rent a boat and catch your own crab or simply pick and choose from the fresh tanks they have on site.  I clearly remember during or visit, people pulling off the road to enjoy fresh cracked crab at picnic tables overlooking the bay.  Truly, truly a beautiful spot.  Here is my blog post about our visit to Jetty Fishery if you’d like to learn more.

This was our last stop during our Oregon Coast trip last year and I can honestly tell you, from the bottom of my heart — Jetty Fishery is a true hidden gem.

After our beautiful day that we spent at the beach we headed north on Hwy 101 and arrived at Jetty Fishery.

We could not believe our eyes.

To us, we just discovered a hidden gem and probably one of the most perfect spots that we had ever been to with our Airstream. The spots here come with full hookups, are covered with grass and come with amazing scenic views of Nehalem Bay.

It could not have been more of a perfect place for us to be.
