Jul 24, 2016 - Neskowin, OR - Lighthouse & Whale Watching

(Ron Writing) After breakfast and listening to one of Pastor Glenn’s taped messages, we left Newport about 11 AM. Our first stop was just a couple miles north at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area & Lighthouse. The area is high on a bluff overlooking the ocean with 270° views and a beautiful view of Newport. There are rocks just off shore with large colonies of sea birds – one of the largest “common murre” colonies is on these rocks. The 93’ lighthouse is the tallest of the lighthouses on the OR coast. It was built in 1873 and is still...

Jun 27, 2016 - Glorious Oregon beaches!

Back in Oregon! Ahh! Our friends planned a coastal biking trip, complete with beautiful views, big hills, and no shoulders. My poor bike from Goodwill never stood a chance. Instead, I more than made do by hitting yoga class and soaking up some sun at the beaches. Great times with great people topped off the days. We had a condo here at Neskowin and called this place home for many years. In the words of 6-year-old Christopher, "Ahh, it's good to be at the beach!"

Jul 27, 2015 - Day 20

We were a half-mile into Oregon, still above the Columbia River, when the traffic came to a stop. One lane on the bridge was closed for construction. Who says states are lacking money for highway projects. We entered Oregon at Astoria and turned toward the ocean. Our first stop was the Lewis and Clark national historical park-Fort Clatsop. Here a reconstruction depicts where the Lewis and Clark expedition spent the winter after arriving at the Pacific Ocean in late 1805. From the park the coastal highway turns south. The Oregon coast is as...

Lay of the land

Jun 7, 2015 - Neskowin, Oregon

We left our RV park at 5:45 AM and it was foggy. At 6:05 we entered Oregon and at 8:52 we stopped for gas in Coos Bay, OR. It was $2.97 a gal - 42 gals filled us up. The roads are good and smooth so we made better time than expected. We killed a little time having breakfast at Coos Bay's golden arches. Breathtakingly beautiful all the way to the water's edge is the view today. We arrived approximately 1:30 PM at Neskowin Creek RV Park where we will spend the night. We traveled 255 miles today. Tomorrow we will be on our way to WA.

Jun 18, 2014 - Neskowin Creek RV Resort

Just a few miles south of Wheeler is Neskowin where will spend a couple of nights at one of our membership parks. This one sits right along Neskowin Creek with a short walking distance to the beach. This park is also a haven for small rabbits as anyone will tell you that has spent anytime in this resort. Before we left Paradise Cove, we took a day trip up to Astoria and visited the Flavel House Museum. Captain Flavel was the first person to guide ocean going vessels across the Columbia River Bar. Interesting bit of history and a lovely old...

May 28, 2013 - Neskowin, OR

May 27 Today we headed to Tillamook Oregon. We have been staying in Neskowin about 40 miles south at a ROD RV park. This park has a indoor pool and hot tube and is very well kept. The first stop was at the Tillamook air museum with an old blimp hangar and was it ever large maybe over 1 ½ football fields long. It was something to see and had a assortment of old world war two planes in it. Being a person that loves to walk around old airplanes and kick the tires and think back to what life was like over 60 years ago in the air world. I was...

Sep 9, 2012 - Neskowin Beach

While we were visiting Cape Kiwanda we got talking with a lady who vacations there every summer. She asked if we had been to Neskowin Beach. We said "Neska-what?" She told us it was her favorite beach and is known for "Proposal Rock". It was only a short drive south so we couldn't pass it up. "Proposal Rock" is actually an island, and at low tide the island and the beach touch each other. We were fortunate enough to arrive at low tide. Even though we just had a nice long walk along Cape Kiwanda Beach, we got the energy to walk out to...

Aug 15, 2011 - Neskowin Creek RV Resort

We have been in this great little beachside community since last Thursday. I would like to say I have been too busy to keep the journal updated, but that wouldn't be quite true. Neskowin is a very small community on the beach. It has a resort/condo/hotel, a very small post office, convenience store, rv resort, restaraunt and a small very charming beach neighborhood. A great place to relax, read, ride bikes and enjoy the beach. We've been doing all of the above. I have some pictures, but the wifi is so slow here I'll post them when there is...

Happy hour at their RV with their friends, Jeanie & Carl and Barbara & Joe. It went long into the evening. Then Murray and Shelle came to our RV. Twas a long but very fun night.

Jun 15, 2008 - Neskowin Creek OR

On the way to Neskowin we stopped at Drift Inn in Yachats. We again confirmed that the seafood chowder is the best so far. Neskowin Creek RV Park, another membership campground, has nice, grassy level sites in a foggy valley surrounded by mountains. There are many rabbits who will eat carrots out of your hand. We walked the beach, saw Proposal Rock and young men scrambling up it.
