Hitched up and pulled out Friday night for a nice weekend! We’ve been keeping the trailer packed so it’s ready to go when we are. We can get home on Friday afternoon and be on the road in no time. Found a great site at Nehalem Bay, and enjoyed an unexpectedly nice weekend. After the wettest winter on record in Portland, the sunshine was an incredibly nice treat! Just over 24 hours- a lot of fun packed into a very short amount of time…I’ll let the pictures tell the story:
We spent a fun afternoon hiking around Oswald West State Park located right off the highway between Cannon Beach and Manzanita! We’ve driven by many times and never stopped -glad we did this time. Who knew! Great hiking trails through old growth forest, suspension bridges along swift moving creeks and a sweet little beach at the end, that is obviously a favorite surfing destination.
Our beautiful weather during the day continued into the evening with moody, colorful skies! I can never tell what I enjoy more…watching the sun go down on the horizon or the color it paints the sky over the mountain range to the east.
We have this site reserved again….looking forward to our return!
Lovely. I haven’t seen any blog posts from you in a while. I’m anxiously awaiting Spring time for camping. You see, I am recovering from my last cancer surgery and healing right now, and I have spent the last 16 months reading other’s blogs and travels just waiting for our time to hitch up and go. Right now the trailer(1960 safari) is in the garage as hubby gives her a good polishing and a few upgrades. Spring is close…the end of my cancer journey as a new journey starts😊. I love your blog and trailer….be safe in your travels
I’m sorry you’ve had to go through this…and I’m thrilled you have the end in sight! Somehow, after facing cancer, life seems a little sweeter and you certainly appreciate the moments going forward! I wish you the very best and am excited for you that you have a wonderful adventure to look forward to! Here’s to health and happiness!!
It is hard to follow that seriousness with my frivolity. Anyone who has been touched by cancer learns to appreciate what a gift life is. In a sense, watching someone close to me suffer from cancer helped motivate me to seize the day and buy my Airstream at a young age. At any rate, I was just going to comment on how nice it is to see a new post. I am glad the two of you made it out so early in the season. My Airstream is still winterized and in Jackson Center for some maintenance. I am eager for an impromptu weekend escape like yours described above. It won’t be long now. Safe travels.
What fun! Thank you for sharing!

So glad to see your posts. They are one of my favorites. I retired from teaching last June and we have gone to Alaska and are returning from Charleston, SC. We were delivering our daughter’s dog to her. In Florida for a few days, looking for manatees. Good to hear you are feeling well.
Just a few years until I’m eligible to retire, too 🙂 30 years goes by quickly. I’m looking forward to being to travel at other times of the year besides summer 🙂 Glad you’re out enjoying yourself! Alaska is definitely on our list of places to visit! Enjoy yourself!
