Exploring Fort Stevens

For our one and only camping trip this year, Fort Stevens State Park had everything, including 3,700 acres of wetland, forest and dunes, and even a shipwreck! The campground is one of the largest in the Western United States with over 9 miles of… Continue Reading “Exploring Fort Stevens”

Hooray For Camping!

Our first camping trip of the year. Finally. Not that we didn’t try earlier. It seems that pandemic camping is in. When things began to open up in late May our favorite campgrounds filled up quickly, without us. And last month, when we tried… Continue Reading “Hooray For Camping!”

The Cruise Continues – On to Astoria!

We woke to sunrise on Day 2 of our cruise ready for our first port of call:  Astoria, Oregon, the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, founded in 1811. (Here’s Day 1 if you missed it.) After coffee and a light breakfast I… Continue Reading “The Cruise Continues – On to Astoria!”

Heceta Bay Lighthouse stands 205 feet above the Pacific Ocean on Heceta Head north of Florence. The light shining from the… Continue Reading “Lighthouses of the Oregon Coast”

Highlights from the Oregon Coast!

It was a rainy trip down to the Redwoods those three days spent on the Oregon Coast.   Though it had been sunny and dry all month, the forecast changed the week we were to leave. Whatever.  We packed raincoats and umbrellas  and headed… Continue Reading “Highlights from the Oregon Coast!”

Postcards from Seaside

There’s nothing better than waking up at the ocean, walking through grassy sand dunes, and watching the waves roll in. It does wonders for the soul. – Susanne

Road Trip to the Columbia River Gorge

We were promised two days of sunshine earlier this week, and so to celebrate we drove south for a night at the Columbia River Gorge. Our plan was to take in the waterfalls on the Oregon side; then spend the night at Skamania Lodge… Continue Reading “Road Trip to the Columbia River Gorge”
