Aug 3, 2019 - Seaview WA – Long Beach RV & Camping Resort

Drove over to Ilwaco WA (just down the road a piece from Long Beach) to check out possibilities for Roger to go charter fishing for salmon. Found a couple of good options, but when Roger saw the boat from Pacific Salmon Charters come in with a boat load of fish, his mind was made up. He signed on right away to go fishing the next day. Then we drove to Long Beach to get his fishing license and stopped for dinner at a local restaurant. I had some terrible clam chowder and Roger didn’t have much good to say about his oyster stew, so I don’t...

Retired at Last!

Oct 3, 2017 - Cape Disappointment

The scenic trip on Hwy 101 to Cape Disappointment was spectacular. Lewis and Clark finally reached the Pacific at this point. The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center was wonderful. They were true heroes. Fort Canby was built in the mid 19th century and manned through the end of WWII. It was one of many coastal forts. At one point over 300 soldiers were stationed there. There are two lighthouses in this area because so many ship wrecks happened at the changing mouth of the mighty Columbia River.

Jul 17, 2015 - Made it back to the ocean

Got to Seaview on Wednesday. Another TT that I am not impressed with. The sites are small and the utilities are hard to get to. The weather has been good and is predicted to be good while I am here. There is a Sand Sculpture contest going on with the judging Saturday afternoon. I went down to see what was going on today and found some were already working on their sculptures. I think I will go back tomorrow and see who wins. There is a rodeo going on July 26th I might go to. Have not been able to find any square dances within 50 miles of...

Jul 14, 2015 - TT Long Beach, WA

On this, a beautiful sunny day, our drive of 30 miles was more than just easy, it's was wonderful. This move took us over the bridge connecting Astoria, OR with Washington. The bridge spans the Columbia River near it's mouth of the Pacific Ocean. It's here that Lewis and Clark ended their trip and stayed for several months preparing for their return. They and others in the Corps of Discovery left footprints all over this region. Upon our arrival, we quickly setup then set off for our long awaited beach venture. We try to walk 4 to 6 miles...

Sep 4, 2014 - TTN Long Beach, WA

Rebecca drove us out of the park and continued half way to our destination of a total of 94 miles. Her portion was the narrow, windy, hilly part, she thinks Dave plans these difficult portions just for her, he just smiles ;) She often says, the 24 hour deodorant quits early on those type of drives. Another ;) We arrive at TTN Long Beach just in time for a big rush of RVs coming in to town for a very popular car show weekend. It'll be the last big hurrah for this little town and their tourist season. And, as we find out the RV park will be...

Aug 25, 2013 - At the Beach

Long Beach Thousand Trails RV Park, Seaview, WA Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013 4:30 pm Hi. I’ve been here at Long Beach for 3 weeks. I wanted to spend August and September along the coast this year to avoid the interior heat of the Pacific states. Last year, the temps in those months were in the 90’s and 100’s along the I-5 corridor. So, I’m here on the coast where the weather has been mostly cloudy with occasional sunshine, but the temperatures have never reached above 71 degrees. I left Randle just south of Mount Rainier on Aug. 4th in bright...

2013 Summer Tour

May 8, 2013 - Southwestern Washington State

Days 63-65 of The Big Trip On Monday, the 6th, the trip from Seaside, OR, to Seaview, WA, set a new short-day record of 32 miles. We were parked and set up before noon and that gave us an afternoon to do a little exploring. Near Thousand Trails is the Cape Disappointment State Park, where there are two lighthouses. Every parking lot required a Washington parking pass and we had to find where to buy one of those. The daily passes were $10 and an annual pass was $30, so we opted for an annual pass, since we would be in Washington for about...

Sep 20, 2011 - My Aching Feet

We left home about 10:30 and decided to hike to the first lighthouse instead of drive. We stopped at the trail head for the 0.9 mile hike through the woods. It was all still very wet and at the trail head they had a sign saying to watch where we were walking on the trail as there might be frogs. Frogs? It wasn’t too long before we saw our first frog. I almost stepped on him as he jumped out of the way. He was one of 6 we saw on the hike. We also spotted a couple of banana slugs. The trail leads to North Head Lighthouse. It was established...

Sep 19, 2011 - Cranberry Museum

It was very foggy this morning and, of course, cool outside. It got down in the low 50’s and we have been turning the fireplace on every morning. We didn’t get left until about 10:30 and drove to the town of Long Beach. The first place we stopped at was Marsh’s Free Museum. We have never seen a place like this. Most of the antiques are up on the ceiling or hanging from the ceiling and the rest of the place is a souvenir/gift shop. Carolyn is not too thrilled about places like this and before too long, she finds me and says she is going out...

Sep 18, 2011 - Misty Day

We are moving down the coast about 90 miles to Seaview, population 650. It is next to the town of Long Beach which boasts of having the longest beach in the world - 28 miles long of hard packed sandy beach. No rocky shores or sea stacks. No huge trees washed up on the beach and you can actually have the beach to yourself. As we are getting ready to leave and are dumping our tanks, we meet a couple doing some traveling with their 30’ Wildcat 5th wheel and are thinking of going full-time. They still have their house, but are thinking of...

Mar 26, 2008 - Gram Cracker: "Oh the weather outside is frightful....

Well, here I am in the Great Northwest. Things are certainly different here. The scenery along Highway 101 is spectacular. At certain points the highway dips down quite close to the ocean. There are tsunami warning signs all over the place. If its a local tsunami, you have maybe 15 minutes to get to high ground. With a distant tsunami, you have 4 hours. We arrived in Washington state today, around Chinook, Washington. During the few hours that we have been here, it has rained, snowed, and hailed. afterwards, we had a beautiful rainbow. All...
