Going to the beach with kids usually reminds us of this:
So when we heard that you can drive right onto Gearhart Beach (just an hour from us), we were eager to try it.
Sure, they probably didn't think idiots with sedans would try the whole beach access thing. But hey, who needs 4-wheel drive when you can just cross your fingers and hope it works?
(Spoiler alert... it worked!)
We went to Seaside for dinner and carousel-ing.
