Feb 25, 2016 - Pacific Beach State Park

Pacific Beach SP February 18-21 Normally we don’t camp in February up here in the Pacific Northwest. Recently, however, we had a nice time over on the Pacific Coast. We’d planned to put in at a RV campground on the tip of the Ocean Shores peninsula during this trip. That campground is near the Worldmark time-share condo where friends Bill and Marlene went for a short break. The plan was that we’d stay overnights in our RV, with Nick, and see Bill and Marlene during the day. But the night before we left home, Marlene texted that she’d come...

Jul 16, 2013 - Pacific Beach, WA

Yesterday we pulled up our roots at the Lewis Army Travel Camp. I was sad to leave. Will miss seeing Mt.

The campground sits high on a cliff overlooking a quiet beach. The town is small with only a couple of shops. At night all we hear is the ocean. Charlie has had some nice bike rides on the beach, and the dogs have enjoyed it as well, since it is littered with dead crabs, various kinds of shells, and other interesting...

Sep 25, 2007 - Pacific Beach, WA

AFter spending four days in Forks and two days on Victoria, BC we moved camp down the West Coast to Pacific Beach, WA and the US Navy's REsort and Conference Center RV Campground. Becky is a Retired Major in the US Army where she served as a nurse for over 20 years and Dick is a Retired Captain in the US Navy so we were eligible to use the facilities. This part of the trip was intended to just be a place to relax and perhaps visit a few local spots. George and Becky spent two nights there with us before saying good-by and heading back to...
