Daily Travel time to see the Oregon Coast for the first time

I have maps and charts to tell me the approximate "driving times" between towns, but how much "real" time do you need to see all there is to see there? We like to stop and take pictures, actually see the towns instead of just driving thru. We are from Texas and have never been to Oregon so we want to take in as much of your beauty as we can. We are driving from Portland to San Francisco in eight days. We are not short on time and could change our plane tickets to give us more days if needed. We are seniors and are interested in Lighthouses, scenery and restaurants.

Thanking all of you in advance for your help. We leave Texas on the 24th of July.

I found that out the hard way online looking at hotels up and down the coast. Thanks for the heads up on Cannon Beach, I'm just sorry we missed the Sand Castle Festival.

If you really want to experience the coast, give yourself a week in each region (north, central and south). Each area has a lot of unique things to experience. 2 days in each region is a good start, but you can literally pull over every 10 miles and spend a few hours at the park, view, hike, or towns/bays.
