Oregon Road Trip – Headache Free!

Hallo and Happy Summer!

How is your summer going? Fantastic, I hope 🙂

I had a fabulous road trip to Oregon last week for a friend’s 50th birthday party near Portland. On the way, I stayed a night at Seaside on the Oregon Coast and then headed inland to the delightful McMenamin’s Edgefield property (just East of Portland) for two nights. No cluster migraines this time…hooray!

Here are a few photos from my trip:

Have a great week!
