Since we didn't have far to drive today, we left later than usual. It was a beautiful drive, some of it through the Siuslaw National Forest. The mountains are not at all rugged. The highest elevation we drove through probably was no more than 750-800 feet. Maybe they should be called hills instead of mountains.
Lincoln City was incorporated in 1965 from the communities of Oceanlake, Delake, Taft, Cutler City and Nelscott. The population is about 7,000.
This afternoon I took a nap, something I almost never do. I didn’t sleep well last night, though, so I guess my body needed a little refreshing. When I woke up, the fog had lifted and the sun was shining. I went to the riverfront to check it out and saw several people fishing from the docks.
