For those of you familiar with the iconic 1985 film, the Haystack Rocks meant the world to kids from the Goon Docks. It had always been a lifelong dream of mine to venture to the setting of the movie and find my own "treasure." The Pacific Coast of Oregon has to be one of the most breathtaking drives, even though California's sometimes-congested Pacific Coast Highway usually takes the spotlight.
This was my view from the inn and I was able to listen to the waves as I fell asleep each night. And not a far drive from the inn was the actual Goonies house that brought back so many memories and a childhood dream come true.
