Larry & Lee Ann's Journey travel blog

Our drive looked like this much of the trip today...

The area is full of winery's...

We have arrived!

Arriving at the campground...

This is our spot...Quiet!

Drift Creek...Small but pretty :)

I like driftwood...Stop along 101...

Not sure why, I just like this pic...

Looks cool, sounds great!

Not flappping, just soaring along...

This one was flapping :)

The lovely Fogarty Beach...

Yep, he takes his Ipad everywhere! Face timing with his sis here...

Otter Loop Road...

Chowder time!

View across the street...

The sidewalk was like taking a shower! See all the people getting...

Yaquina Head Lighthouse, along Pacific Coast Highway...

The birds were taking off & landing regularly, several makes & models...

Larry, enjoying our visit at Oregon's tallest lighthouse...

Hey, look who's lookin' at me!

No sand down here, just plenty of black rocks...It's not cold, just...

Yep, no jacket just blown hair 10 minutes later :)

View in front of our truck...

One last shot back at the lighthouse as we make our way...

Shooting out the window as we head back home...

Oh no, missed the sun! Ah well, I'll catch it another day...


Had an uneventful drive from Scappoose to Lincoln City, Oregon, although the traffic was heavy in most of the small towns which seemed a bit unusual. We traveled I-5 a short distance which was crawling along & even after we eventually got on OR 18 it was still heavily traveled. Perhaps because it was a 3 day holiday?

We normally stay at the Coyote Rock RV Park on the Siletz River but this time we enjoyed Wapiti Park, an Elk's member park located on Drift Creek Road. It's the 2nd time we've stayed at an Elk's Lodge since joining last year. The first lodge, in Billings, MT had no hookups but allowed us to drycamp on site for a small donation. This park was located outside of town with 40 sites, electric & water, dump available on departure. There was one motorhome there when we arrived so we had tons of space & it was oh so quiet!!!! Loved it, we'll definitely stay here again :)

Spent the afternoon exploring different beaches near Depoe Bay & enjoyed a large bowl of clam chowder for lunch. I seldom eat clam chowder but sure love to order it along the coast! It was a bit windy but none of the predicted rain appeared & it was in the high 60's so not cold either. I did put a light jacket on when we stopped to visit Yaquina Head, Oregon's tallest lighthouse. Standing 93 feet tall at the westernmost point of the basalt headland, the lighthouse has been a bright beacon of the night, guiding ships and their supplies along the west coast since the light was first lit on August 20, 1873. We spotted a harbor seal diving in the heavy waves & enjoyed watching him for awhile before finally moving on. It was a great day!

Well, that's it for now. Stay tuned as we make our way down the Pacific Coast Highway. It is absolutely beautiful!
