May 17, 2013 - Friday through Monday at Coyote Rock RV Resort and Marina
Friday, May 17, 2013 - Coyote Rock RV Resort and Marina Before leaving Netarts, we bought one dozen oysters and a shucking knife so we will try them tomorrow for lunch. We are going to try grilling them. We are now leaving what is known as the north coast and heading to the central coast area. Our coast tour will take us 364 miles through one of America’s great wonderlands, with wind-sculptured coastlines and historic lighthouse and bridges. We are taking our time driving down Hwy 101 as it is a picturesque and winding highway; not a...Jump to full entry
Oct 21, 2012 - Coos Bay to Brookings...
We pulled out of Coos Bay around 11am to pretty skies and a mid 60's temperature. Grateful for that as rain was predicted for the day. It was a lovely drive as we made our way south on PCH 101. We made several stops along the way although not near as many as I would have liked. So most of today's pics were taken at speeds varying from 35-55mph. I was especially sad to fly by the Port Orford area, it is truly beautiful. Perhaps we'll make it back on a day trip, but with lots of rain in the forecast, it's doubtful.Sure looking forward to the...Jump to full entry
Oct 20, 2012 - Bandon, Oregon...
Today's post covers one day last week when we took a drive to Bandon to frolic on the beach. Well, sort of. You don't do much frolicking in October! But we did have a great time checking out the Coquille River Lighthouse and watching a couple of harbor seals, sea gulls & a whole lot of surf. The ocean is so mesmerizing. I really could sit by it for hours and if I lived in this area I would be down there regularly. Afterward we headed back into the Port of Bandon where we visited Weber's Pier. We enjoyed some chowder at the Chowder House and...Jump to full entry
Oct 19, 2012 - Depoe Bay Drive...
Today's photos were taken on a day trip we made to Depoe Bay, which of course is not far from our campground near Lincoln City. We tried to wait it out for nice weather but the rain just doesn't seem to want to quit. So, we put on our jackets (with a hood for the rain drops) and took a drive. We also stopped for a bowl of chowder at the Chowder House. Very good I might add. I'm learning to actually like it, which I didn't for most of my life. I've noticed a change in my taste buds in recent years which is a good thing I suppose. It has...Jump to full entry
Oct 16, 2012 - Three Capes Scenic Loop....
Today we drove the Three Capes Scenic Loop, a 35-mile byway off U.S. 101 between Tillamook and Pacific City, known to be one of the most scenic areas on the north coast. We started our day at Cape Kiwanda State Park. Cape Kiwanda is the smallest of the three capes but not necessarily the least interesting. There is an interesting sandy protrusion named Cape Kiwanda, and one of the grandest and photogenic haystack rocks on the entire Oregon coast, Chief Kiawanda Rock. They say if you look closely, you will see the profile of the Chief with...Jump to full entry
Oct 15, 2012 - Coyote Rock RV & Marina, Oregon....
We're staying at a beautiful place about 8 miles south of Lincoln City on OR-229 on the Siletz River. It's a Passport America park and is one of the nicer PA parks we've visited. As I mentioned earlier, we were booked into Site 5 backing up to the river. But it would have been impossible to receive our satellite TV & Internet so we chose to move to the back of the park with the river off to our side. It worked out just fine and it was actually quite interesting to watch folks traipse back & forth to the dock & their boats. It's been raining...Jump to full entry
Oct 15, 2012 - Siletz Bay...
We left Scappoose to good weather & clear skies as we made our way to the Oregon coast. We were grateful for that because rain was predicted, if not that day certainly the next. We traveled south on OR-30 for just a bit before going over Cornelius Pass and picking up Hwy 18 until finally reaching PCH 101 just north of Lincoln City. We traveled 8 miles or so before turning left on 229 for 1.5 miles finally reaching our destination, Coyote Rock Campground & Marina. We'd called ahead for a site on the river, something we rarely do. But even...Jump to full entry
Sep 22, 2012 - Portland to the Oregon Coast
Portland is a big city. We were challenged to find the right freeways to get us west. Part of the city has freeways on top of freeways. We found ourselves on 5 and 6 lane highways where we needed to make left turns and we would be in the right lane. However, the guys persevered and we made it. I guess if you live in Portland you'd figure out the best way and time to travel the freeways. We eventually found US 18 which took us to the coast and Devils Lake where we spent the night. The weather has cooled to the 60's and is breezy. Karen is...Jump to full entry
Sep 13, 2012 - Lincoln City
We continued south today, past Rockaway Beach with it’s unusual style & brightly painted homes, to just south of Lincoln City, to stay at the Ocean Lake Elks Lodge off-site campground. Lincoln City and the smaller communities are lovely beach towns on a beautiful part of the coast with rocky cliffs and wide sandy beaches. It can also be very windy and they celebrate this wind with kites and their Summer Kite Festival. Check out this site for Kite Festivals along the Oregon & Washington Coast. The Lincoln City area had a lot of quaint shops...Jump to full entry
Aug 28, 2012 - Florence to Lincoln City Elks
We traveled from Florence to Lincoln City (Oceanlakes), a distance of 73 miles. The Elks own a private rv park here called 'Wapiti Park'. Wapiti Park has 40 back-in sites and sits on about 40 acres of privately owned land. The park sits right on the edge of Drift Creek, and during the winter rains we understand that most of the park is covered with water when the creek rises to flood stage. There is also a herd of 20-30 elk that visit here from time to time, and we will definately keep an eye out for 'heavy rain' and 'elk'.:-) Mike and NancyJump to full entry
Aug 15, 2012 - Oregon Coast for a Week with our Granddaughter
Thursday we picked up our Cheyenne and headed to Yachats to stay in the Sea Perch RV Park next to the Ocean. It is a small park but has great views over the ocean and easy access to the beach. While driving over to Yachats, we received a call from Judies cousin Marshall who was on a trip through Oregon. He had spent some time in Lincoln City and was going back to Portland but was willing to come south to meet with us for a while. We picked a spot in Waldport to meet and had a nice visit while looking out at Alsea Bay. It was good to see...Jump to full entry
Jul 6, 2012 - Crabbing
Well we explored north and south of where we are staying so today is a free day, so of course, we went crabbing! We loaded up all the equipment and Sage and went back to Lincoln City. Another thing I don’t know if I have said, but there are dogs everywhere on every beach – we have not seen any restrictions regarding dogs – another thing that is very different from Florida. It was pretty cloudy when we left, but continued to clear as we drove towards Lincoln City. By the time we arrived it was partly sunny and about 60 degrees. We got all...Jump to full entry
