How I Spent My Summer Vacation: Sarah Cruickshank

LMPR is throwing it back to that perennial school day assignment of, “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.” In the first of a three part series Account Manager, Sarah Cruickshank, revisits her summer road trip to the scenic Oregon coast. 

Among several weekends away in 2015, my one big vacation was a road trip through Oregon – a holiday I eagerly anticipated. While not my first time in this beautiful state, the 10-days I spent journeying through Portland, Salem, McMinnville, and Troutdale – with a final stop in Seattle, Washington – were certainly some of my favourite. The food, scenery, and countless activities all contributed to an unforgettable time away – one I’ll cherish for a long time to come.

See some highlights from my journey, below.

Room 215 is widely regarded as the most haunted room in Edgefield. Also where I lay my head for my stay! Lucky for me, no ghost sightings this time.
