Planning to visit the West Coast next Summer from the Uk for 3 weeks. I have a mind to fly into Vancouver and then take the train down to Portland, then pick a car up and return from San Diego. There will be 2 of us, we have driven down from San Francisco to San Diego before and will look forward to doing it again. However we have no idea what to expect from south of Portland. We love dramatic coastlines, old towns, good food and welcoming accomodation. Would welcome some suggestions. One other point, there is somewhere north of Seattle where the Union Jack is still allowed to fly on US soil. Does anybody know where this is?
