Sep 6, 2016 - Warrenton, OR

September 6, 2016 With all of our chores we did not begin to eat until almost 8:00. As I sat down I realized I must have dialed my friend, Rayne from Sonoma, by mistake and canceled the call. I had a voice message and it was Rayne, “ Deb, just read your blog. We are in Warrenton with friends at our favorite house exchange that is about 5 minutes from you!.” We agreed to meet at Arnie’s Café for breakfast and then for dinner at their place tomorrow night. What is so eerie is that I had a birthday card for Rayne that I needed to mail from the...

Jun 10, 2015 - Visiting Fort Stevens

I am playing catch up! Just in case you thought we fell off the face of the earth. I have forgotten to do the travel blog here lately. So I went and retrieved our photos. We went to Fort Stevens in June to visit our friends OT and Norine. We had a fun week there. OT and Spike each rode their recumbent bikes every morning, while I walked. There are lots of bike/walking trails there. And notice that we actually got a sunny camp spot! Lots of the camp sites are shady, but if it is hot outside, the shade would be welcome!

Heading to the East!

Aug 3, 2013 - Fort Clatsop, Warrenton Oregon

We visited Fort Clatsop near Warrenton Oregon. Fort Clatsop was the encampment of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the Oregon Country near the mouth of the Columbia River during the winter of 1805-1806. Located along the Lewis and Clark River at the north end of the Clatsop Plains, the fort was the last encampment of the Corps of Discovery before embarking on their return trip east to St. Louis. It took just over 3 weeks for the Expedition to build the fort, and it served as their camp from December 8, 1805 until their departure on March...

Aug 2, 2013 - Peter Iredale Wreck, Fort Stevens, Clatsop County Fair

This was a busy day, we attended the Clatsop County Fair, on the way we saw a doe. Now we have been to a lot of fairs in our time, some being county fairs, this one has to be the smallest one we have attended, not a lot to see, the flower garden was a wonderfully peaceful place, it had rained before we got there so there were rain drops on some of the flowers and leaves. One of the historical gems on the west coast is Fort Stevens. Not only from it World War II role but for the Peter Iredale wreck. Fort Stevens was an American military...

Jul 23, 2013 - Oregon Coast

It's another cool (55 degree) foggy gray sky morning here in Warrenton OR. The sun has been coming out 15-20 min in the late afternoon. Went to church Sun. and a street fair after church. Fair has quite a variety of food, crafts, flowers and produce. Enjoyed walking around. Had the best crab cakes. Went to Seaside yesterday and had lunch at Norma's a well known restaurant. Food of course was excellent. Chuck is really enjoying his clam chowder. The last 3 places he had chowder it should be called clam stew, it was so full of solids. I had...

Jul 20, 2013 - WA to OR

First an update on the past few days at Pacific Beach Resort and Conference Center. That area and the area here in OR are full of wild berries. Some raspberries and some blackberries. Unfortunately the won't be ripe for a couple more weeks, but the plants are loaded with unripe berries. Wish we could come back in a few weeks. The high temps were in the low 70's or high 60's, and the lows were in the low 50's. There was usually fog or low clouds around until the mid afternoons. Walking the beach was cold, windy and foggy, but I still enjoyed...

We are parked up in Fred Myer parking lot in Warrenton, Oregon. Got here about 5:30 and it is raining and cold. Unreal the traffic out on the 101 highway. Pam is cooking supper. Rice, gravy, fried pork chops and butter beans. Sorry Doc, but I had too have some home cooking..... Driving thru Seattle, the interstate went under tall buildings!

Jun 16, 2012 - More on the Northern Oregon Coast

Well, the weekend is here and our near-empty loop at Ft. Stevens State Park is filling up with campers – groups of campers with lots of kids. It is amazing how much “stuff” people bring with them – bicycles, skateboards, Razors, boats, pets, large BBQ grills, tables, chairs, boxes and boxes full of wood and the required hatchet to chop the wood, and screened-in tents for sitting outside without getting swarmed by mosquitoes. I suppose all this “stuff” is the norm or perhaps when we use to tent camp we were minimalists even then. The state...

Jun 13, 2012 - Central and Northern Oregon Coast

We’ve been on the Oregon coast now for about 2-1/2 weeks. According to the Mile-by-Mile Guide, we started our coastal trip in Newport at Mile Marker 141. We are now at Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton around Mile Marker 6.8 – just a short hop into Washington. The coast highway, Highway 101, is primarily a two-lane winding road. The posted speed limit never topped 55mph and, when driving through town, it dropped to 25-30mph. So, the drive up the coast was slow. Most of the time, Highway 101 ran straight through towns with the exception...

Feb 20, 2012 - Warrenton, OR

The weekend really flew by; we drove to Clackamas on Friday and packed things to bring back to the trailer. The drive was really tense, we had torrential rains most of the way. It was really good to pull into the driveway. On Saturday we saw two of our granddaughter's basketball games (her team 'St. Agatha Storm' won both games)! After the second game we went to lunch at Oaks Bottom Pub with our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. They have really good sandwiches! We finally got on the road late Saturday afternoon and got back to the RV...

Senior Trip

Feb 17, 2012 - Warrenton, OR

We left Cannon Beach this morning and arrived at the Astoria-Warrenton-Seaside KOA in Warrenton, OR at about 11:00 am. Setting up was easy and we are settled down for six days. Looking forward to just relaxing. On Tuesday we ate lunch at Bill's Tavern; one of our favorite places on the Coast. It is a brew pub that produces some good beer, and the burgers are worth the trip to Cannon Beach. I had the Chili Burger which is wonderful! In the evening we saw "The Gin Game" at the Coaster Theater, it was very enjoyable. The weather has been rainy...

Jul 1, 2011 - Warrenton, OR

7-1-11 Warrenton, OR Many events have happened since the last entry! We really have been very busy, and it all comes to a screeching halt tomorrow when we drive the short distance home. We had a super time in Great Falls, MT. We learned the “real story” about the very difficult portage around the Great Falls (5 of them). The amount of water coming over these falls was very impressive. We also had a super time in the Charles Russell Museum. It’s an amazing complex! After driving to Helena, we went on a boat cruise to see the “Gates of the...
