    I love Clam Chowder and haven’t had any that compares to Clam Chowder on the Oregon Coast. A quest for the best Clam Chowder would be a good excuse to visit Massachusetts and Maine, which are closer to me than the Oregon Coast.
    I enjoyed the movie Goonies! It’s one that they show frequently on the weekends and I enjoy watching it even if I don’t catch the whole movie.

      I would love to visit New England some day and will most DEFINITELY try their clam chowder.

    I totally LOVE the Goonies!! So many lines from that movie are woven into my family’s life. One of my dreams is to go to Astoria, and find the house. . .
    Yes, I love clam chowder, but my preference is for Manhattan rather than New England.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I loved the Goonies as a kid too. I’ve been to Astoria a bunch of times. It’s a fun place to visit. I haven’t found the Goonies house, yet.

    We rented a house in Otter Rock, about two blocks away from Devil’s Punchbowl. It was the BEST vacation ever. There’s a Mo’s right at the end of the street. Best shrimp sandwich I’ve ever had (served on Texas Toast – crazy good)

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I saw some rental houses around there that looked pretty cute. Someday I WILL go to Mo’s! Dang it! I always miss it.

    As a native Bostonian, I’m a fan of New England Clam Chowder.

    I still love Goonies and watch it every so often. 🙂 And clam chowder is delicious!

    We have a Devil’s Punchbowl out here too, but its nothing like that area. In the middle of the desert, its just a big bowl out of rock that you can go hiking through. When its warm enough, they do full-moon hikes through it at night on the weekend. 🙂

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Full moon hikes sound like fun! I like the sounds of your Devil’s Punchbowl.

    Goonies never say die!!! I was actually going to submit a spark thing for the Ignite talk at FitBloggin’ and include some Goonies stuff, but I totally chickened out. ;( Oh well… love that movie! 🙂 Looks like you had a wonderful time, and the weather looks gorgeous. And I love going to Mo’s and staring out at the ocean and slurping my clam chowder. So good!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Man! Everyone’s been to Mo’s except me!

    Gosh, looks gorgeous! And, even though I’m a product of the 80’s (I’m 42) I never saw Goonies. Or Purple Rain. Or Say Anything. But don’t tell anyone, I don’t want to ruin my reputation!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Oh man! You gotta catch up! I bet your kids would love The Goonies.

  8. Cheryle

    I am 44 AND a native Oregonian and have never seem Goonies, either! (hangs head in shame)

    I love the Oregon Coast … One of my most fave places in the world. I am hoping to go there for my birthday in June. 🙂

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Travesty! How have you not seen that movie?!?! You must change that.

  9. Diane, fit to the finish

    I never saw the Goonies either! I am now sorry I missed it. My sister lives in Oregon but I’ve never visited her out there.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You should visit her. You’d love it. Where in Oregon does she live?

    We lived in Boston for several years so I love Legal’s clam chowder as well as chowder in Maine – man oh man I am salivating just thinking about it! Would love to make it to Oregon one day. We loved the Goonies – been trying to get my 10-year-old to watch it!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      And I would love to go to Maine or Boston some day!

    Forget Mo’s! You need to try to the clam chowder at the McMenamins LightHouse Pub in Lincoln City. The best clam chowder ever. Seriously. Have that and a Ruby and you’re set.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      That sounds good. I saw the McMenamin’s at Lincoln City but we didn’t stop. I’ll have to remember it for next time.
