Day 6: Cannon Beach x Washington x Space Needle x Pike Place Market

Jeremiah & I woke up extremely early & packed up the last of our things. We grabbed coffee before heading to Cannon Beach. 
Once we arrived at Cannon Beach, we had a bit of trouble finding out where to park, but we eventually found a public lot. We walked down to the beach. I couldn’t leave Oregon without paying homage to my 2nd all-time favorite movie ever. The Goonies filmed some of their scenes here on Cannon Beach by Haystack Rock. I really wanted to visit Mikey’s house (The Goon Docks), but the owner recently closed off the area because too many visitors were disrupting the neighborhood. Completely understandable! This place was the next best thing(: I was cheesing, squealing like a pig, & clenching my fists out of excitement. I took a few photos & then we made our way to Astoria.

There’s a small souvenir shop 30 minutes away from Cannon Beach that sold Goonies merchandise. We thought there would be a wider selection, but they only had a few things. After Astoria, we made our way to Washington.

Once we finally arrived in Washington, we parked & checked in for our reservation at the Space Needle restaurant. Once we got seated, I felt super nauseous because I didn’t know it was a revolving restaurant & I have motion sickness so I couldn’t even look out the window ): It was an unpleasant dining experience for me.

After dinner, Jeremiah & I made our way upstairs to check out the view & take a few photos. There were just too many people up there so we didn’t stay very long. If I would ever go back to Washington again, I would definitely skip the Space Needle & do something else. I wasn’t impressed at all. It seemed so much cooler when I was a kid. (shrugs).

After the Space Needle, Jeremiah & I went to the Pike Place Market. We didn’t get the chance to walk around the whole thing because by the time we got there, a lot of the shops were closing up. It was kind of an unpleasant experience there as well because everyone was just everywhere, people kept pushing & shoving others, etc. It’s definitely a tourist spot. The market seems cute to shop for groceries, but other than that, I wasn’t that impressed by it. It honestly just reminds me of the markets back at home.

We stopped by the gum wall alley & took a few photos. Interesting alley, but super gross. lol.

After the market, we went to the first ever Starbucks store. & it was extremely underwhelming. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

First day in Washington wasn’t that great, but it’s okay. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
