We stopped on the way north at the Drift Inn in Yachats where the seafood chowder is to die for. And we found another new favorite-mac n jack African amber. Alas our favorite gift shop there is closed. There was a farmers market so we got some outstanding blueberries and zucchini.
South Beach State Park is bigger than Sunset Beach, the sites are bigger but ours has some overhanging trees that were a nuisance. The weather on the way up was cool and overcast but the sun came out while we were setting up.
We found the South Beach Fish Market recommended by Trip Advisor, not exactly elegant, but great fresh fish. It's just down the road from the campground. They have this wonderful appetizer-type thing called salmon candy. We also had fish and chips and dungeness crab.
The next day we golfed at Agate Beach Golf Club, a 9-hole course. It is very nice, on a bluff above the ocean. It was cloudy when we called about a tee time but by the time we got there the sun had come out and it got busy. We had a fun time. Of course, when we talk about golfing, I am still on the mend from my broken wrist. Dr. Leathers says no driving or irons until the beginning of August. So I can only putt and chip.
We had lunch at Georgio's, another Trip Advisor recommendation. The view is fantastic; it's right on the beach but the food is just ok.
