Located at San Narciso, Zambales is Crystal Beach Resort. It’s near the church and city hall and has a stunning view of the sunset. It’s an eco-friendly resort that is peaceful and chill. Like literally, if there’s a word to describe our two days stay there, it would be “chill”. They have different forms of accommodation — huts, tents, rooms, attics, you name it. You can bring your food and grill your own (with corkage fee but for us, we didn’t pay anymore. Idk why). Bringing your own alcohol is a no-no. They have their own bar and restaurant inside too.
What I love about this place is that it’s spacious and clean. You can chill at night by the shore — they provide banigs to rest in front of the restaurant. Though I would suggest to bring some Off lotion and insect spray.
We made it to Portland early enough to spend the morning people watching. We waited until the world famous Saturday Morning market started and walked by the vendors’ wares with Beau.
It turned out that most of what you should do in Portland is eat, and eat we did. We had giant hamburgers from @tiltitup and finished off with ice cream from @saltandstraw. I don’t think I had been fuller yet on our trip. Oh yeah, and caught all the cool street art including this piece by @jeffsheridan 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Chris caught up with old friends and I made new ones. We enjoyed our time with company, but had to continue our journey down the Pacific coast. You’d think that we would have been able to do it all on this trip, but I do wish we had spent more time in Oregon. If go back, we’ll be at Mt. Hood and cruising down HWY 1!
I've been a little distracted from painting and all things arty lately, instead I've been admiring the art in streets of Paris and falling in love with the history, the people, the cobbled winding streets, with the new languages (and sexy accents) and the large glasses of wine. Safe to say im feeling inspired.
