It was good news when we woke up yesterday morning and we hadn’t floated away in the Walmart parking lot … that was some rainstorm we had, but by morning the skies had cleared.
Our normal travel day’s range in the area of three to three and a half hours, but lately we having been putting in much longer days. If we were heading south down the Oregon coast we would definitely plan to drive no more than three hours to our next destination because there are so many pullouts to stop and admire the views along the way.
On this trip, where we are heading north, we are treated to amazing views but there are only a few pullouts that you can access from the northbound lane and most of those have not been big enough for us.
The other reason we have pulled some longer travel days was to gain a few extra days to spend in state parks along the coast, and the first one was to be our stop for last night and tonight. When we pulled into South Beach State Park there was only one section open for first come first serve and those sites were all to small for us so we went on to plan B. Instead of the state park we are spending a few days back at the Port of Newport Marina, a favorite of ours 🙂
From now on our travel days will only be a few hours and hopefully the weather cooperates and we can enjoy the extra time at our destinations.
And the weather did cooperate last night when we enjoyed a nice walk along the beach watching the sunset. Unfortunately I didn’t bring my camera but I got some okay pictures with my cell phone.
Until next time …
