West Coast

Going through our personal photos never ends up at the top of the to-do list. Last April we drove the west coast from Los Angeles to Vancouver over the course of a week. What an amazing trip it was despite it being rainy season. Some of our favourite places we stopped were Pismo Beach, Santa Cruz, Monterey, 19 Mile Drive, San Francisco, Avenue of the Giants, Oregon Sand Dunes, Cannon Beach, Seaside, Seattle, Skagit Valley and finally Vancouver. Here are a few of our favourites from the trip, most of the black and white shots Jon took with an old Canon AE-1. Enjoy!


I’ve always wanted to go to the Tulip Festival in Washington… mission accomplished.

Beautiful! I have done part of this drive with my parents a long time ago when I was in high school. We made it all the way to the Red Wood Forest. Beautiful photographs Jenny and Jon!

Beautiful photos. Brings back memories from a similar trip I made with a friend waaaaaay back when I turned 21. The Pacific coastline is so breathtaking. I love the B&W shots Jon :)
