Day 4 Portland to Cannon Beach – Part 2

Yesterday’s post was a little long so I decided to split it up into two. After we left Eugene, headed to Portland to meet a friend, saw Multnomah Falls, we actually headed back to Portland to eat.

I ate at Uno Mas and the tacos were really good. And it was in a cute food area.

Before we left for our road trip I did a little research and found some fun murals/street art I wanted to check out in different cities. I found a bunch of really fun ones in Portland!

I walked around the corner while I was waiting for my food and found this cute one. If you want to see this, the address for the Pie Spot is 521 Northeast 24th Avenue, Portland, OR 97232.

I turned around and behind me was this gem:

After lunch we headed to get some ice cream, based on my cousin’s recommendation, at Salt & Straw. They have fun ice cream combos and flavors. I’d totally recommend it if you’re in Portland.  They have three locations in Portland, we went to the one at 2032 NE Alberta St.

The reason we went to this location was two of my murals were down the block from the ice cream shop. So we took a little walk and found two that were on my list.

This motivational mural is at 21 Street and NE Alberta Avenue.

This amazing “You Are Confined Only By the Walls You Build Yourself” mural can be found at 22nd and NE Alberta Avenue. IMG_20150304_154248

I LOVED this one! The colors, the details, the font, everything. So I decided to take close up pictures of the quote so you can all see the details.

After our awesome ice cream mural walk, we got back into the car and headed to Cannon Beach. My cousin raved about this beach, and we’d also heard it was beautiful from other people and it’s been on our list for a while. We made it to town just in time to see Haystack Rock at sunset.
