Walking the Beach in Nehalem Bay State Park – Adventures on The Oregon Coast

It’s October 2020 as I type these words, and last week I was asked to put on my LifeStory Alchemist hat www.LifeStoryAlchemist.com and head to the Oregon Coast to help some fine folks work out the branding  and marketing details for a really fun project they are putting together.

It was an absolutely beautiful fall day on the Oregon Coast – the sun was shining, and the temperatures were in the low 70s!

Before my meeting I made a visit to the Nehalem Bay State Park. I had never been to Nehalem Bay State Park before.

Nehalem Bay State Park

Prior to last week, when I was in that part of the Oregon Coast and I wanted to visit a state park, I have headed either north a little to Oswald West State Park, or south to Cape Lookout State Park.

For more info about Oswald West State Park check out my Savory Travel Adventures article entitled – The Best One-Mile Hike In Oregon – Short Sand Beach Trail Oswald West State Park.

This was my first ever visit to Nehalem Bay State Park and WOW!  What an incredible start park!

Walking along that beach was glorious!

Even if you just have an hour, this is a stop well worth your time.

Wishing you Savory Travel Adventures!

The Stranger’s Guide Mediterranean Edition

Goodness!  I recently received my copy of the Stranger’s Guide Mediterranean and WOW! Great writing and awesome photos!

If you have any interest in this part of the world do yourself a favor and order a copy!

Here is a link where you can do that very thing – https://ezsubscription.com/stg/store/prdetail?pr=STGISS20-03

The Wines of Greece by Joelle Quinn

With all that being said, let me tell you about my favorite part of the Stranger’s Guide Mediterranean edition – Greek Wine by (the one and only) Joelle Quinn.

Earlier this year I was honored to attend a wine writer’s trip to Greece.

I went with an incredible group of content creators – Lynda Balslev @tastefoodtravel, Evan Saviolidis @evanwinesavvy, Jen O’Flanagan @jenoflanagan, and Joelle Quinn @joelleaquinn.

We had a wonderful time touring some of the many fantastic wineries in the Kilkis regional unit of Greece about an hour north of Thessaloniki. I can’t say enough about the wine and food that we enjoyed!

We also got to spend some time in the enchanting town of Goumenissa.  I have a few Savory Travel Adventure articles coming soon about some of the places in and around Goumenissa that are well worth your time.

On a side note – when you go to this splendid part of the world, make sure to book yourself a stay at the Dimosthenis Traditional Guesthouse run by Maria Mouzouri and her family. In addition to being a superb host, Maria is a delightful and very well informed tour guide. Lastly – If you are lucky, Maria might even get you a piece of xinomavro chocolate cake! This wine cake is soooo good!

What is xinomavro?  Glad you asked! Here is your answer –  https://winesofgreece.org/varieties/xinomavro/

Anyways let’s get back to Joelle’s contribution to the Stranger’s Guide Mediterranean edition.

Once your copy arrives you will get to read an overview about wine in Greece, and Joelle will introduce you to 3 simply stellar Greek wineries – Chatzivariti Winery, Tatsis Winery, and Sakalaki Winery.

I have been to each one of these lovely wineries and I can vouch for everything that Joelle says about them!

As I already said – do yourself a favor and order yourself a copy of Stranger’s Guide Mediterranean edition – https://ezsubscription.com/stg/store/prdetail?pr=STGISS20-03 

PS – If you ever get the opportunity, make sure to ask Joelle about the legend of the boar hunter. It’s one tall tale best told late at night over a really good bottle of Greek wine!

 

Wishing you Savory Travel Adventures!
