Jun 28, 2018 - Leg # 15 - Lincoln City, OR

/// Thursday - June 28, 2018 A Treavel Day: Feeling quite punky, I spent most all morning breaking camp and preparing to hit the road. We are both suffering the full effects of nasty colds. Ugly.... We finally departed Winchester Bay at 10:45 A.M. I wish we had been feeling better during out stay here. It really is a nice place. Our route today would be north on the Scenic Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 101) approximately 100 miles to Lincoln City, OR. The weather today was very nice, the road conditions were good and traffic was heavier than...

Jun 5, 2017 - Police Activity

We left Tillamook for Lincoln City, OR today. We have to pick up a couple of prescriptions for Sue from Rite Aid. I made reservations last week for a couple of days in case the prescriptions weren't ready by the time we got there. They were. While waiting in the parking lot with Winnie for Sue to pick up the prescriptions, I was watching a strange man with a dog stagger around the parking lot. He was wearing a pair of ski goggles with yellow lenses. There was another RV in front of me and he kept disappearing behind the RV near the doors....

Jul 19, 2016 - Lincoln City, OR...the Coast

We had a nice easy drive from the Portland area out to the Oregon coast. We left around 10 am which seemed to help us miss the Portland traffic. Then our GPS took us over a couple low mountains on a beautiful drive and before we knew it we were on Hwy 101. We’re staying in a state campground, which was a bit of a challenge for parking. They always say the spaces are long enough, but sometimes the roads aren’t wide enough to allow Jay to back in our 40 ft RV. But he did manage and we got set up for a couple nights here. We drove south into...

Jul 17, 2016 - Lincoln City, OR - Devils Lake RV Park

Our trip from Florence to Lincoln City, OR was along 76 miles of coastline in the rain so no travel pictures were taken. It took about two hours since there were several small towns along the way. We are staying at the Devils Lake RV Park at the very north end of Lincoln City just off of US 101. We have a long pull-through that is a little unlevel and the sites are pretty tight but we have a 50 amp full hookup with so-so free WiFi, very strong Verizon, and a clear shot to the satellite. We are in site 53 which is just the first of three...

Jun 28, 2016 - Kites, a Hike, and Farewell

There was a kite festival in Lincoln City this past weekend. Tom has done some kite flying and we have enjoyed previous festivals so we headed north once again through our previously traveled towns a Yachats and Newport plus another 25 miles to Licoln City. We parked in the local Outlet Mall where there was a shuttle bus to the beach and the festival. But we opted to walk the mile to the festival instead of busing it' We had our lawn chairs and hit a Subway shop on the way then found a spot facing the field where the kite demos took place....

May 4, 2016 - April 2016

April 1-30, 2016 The last activities at RCB kept us busy for the first half of April: Dinner and dancing with friends, Hand & Foot cards, Saturday night at the movies in the cul-de-sac, splish/splash pool party, friends Larry & Judy arrived from Hemet for game day and one last Board Meeting. Then the sad part of April --time to say goodbye to our winter friends as we all leave RCB for our summer homes. We got the park model summarized, golf cart on jacks and the garden cleaned up—Shana flew to Palm Springs to ride back to Anacortes with us....

Oct 13, 2014 - Lincoln City, OR...

Had an uneventful drive from Scappoose to Lincoln City, Oregon, although the traffic was heavy in most of the small towns which seemed a bit unusual. We traveled I-5 a short distance which was crawling along & even after we eventually got on OR 18 it was still heavily traveled. Perhaps because it was a 3 day holiday? We normally stay at the Coyote Rock RV Park on the Siletz River but this time we enjoyed Wapiti Park, an Elk's member park located on Drift Creek Road. It's the 2nd time we've stayed at an Elk's Lodge since joining last year....

Aug 7, 2014 - Sometime life happens...

Last night we learned Bev's sister is not doing well in Seattle and is back in the hospital. While we realize our presence isn't needed there, Bev's desire to be of support and encouragement to her sister is very strong. I completely understand and so today we rolled out of the Florence headed to Seattle. As we continued north along Highway 101, it became most apparent Bev had picked up whatever was bugging Linda. Well now what do we do? We've left good friends and a wonderful place for rest but we're miles away. We pull off the highway and...

Nov 8, 2013 - Lincoln City, OR

11/8 1030 We pull out of Gig Harbor WA headed for Oregon. We head west and then down the coast on the Pacific Coast Highway, RT US 101. They use the term highway very loosley. There are places where it is a very narrow 2 lanes lots of steep and lots of tight turns. We cross the Columbia river as we cross into Oregon and it is a very impressive river. In Northern Oregon we go by a huge old Airship hanger that they have converted to an aviation Museum. Mostly a really nice drive with lots of it along the coast or in beautiful forest. Some of...
