Oregon, central coast, short trip

Our first trip since January due to the virus, we just made a short run to the coast.  Not too crowded during the week, but reservations have picked up, and it's going to be hard to find spots for the summer.  We got a good one with a view.  I observed, in almost darkness, a bobcat, and two mornings, the dog child and I saw a fox because we are early risers.  I almost wished I had stayed longer.  There were many kayaks going down the river and back up, because before going much farther, they would run into the ocean. 

I get the drift, I can only add one picture here, so I am trying a link to Wordpress to see if it works.

So pretty!! One day I’m going to have to head that way. 

There is a way to add more than one photo but I think I had to post then go back in to edit and then I could add more photos. Kinks that need worked out.... I’ll see if it can get fixed. But your Wordpress link worked.

Good.  I'm not used to doing that with a link.  It's ok if anyone looks.  I tried to write it a bit different so it wasn't all the same info in both places.  I didn't think of editing to add photos.

Dog-child and I took a chance on the weather and made a run to the coast for three days with the Five Wide, to Washburne state campground again.  If one doesn't like the weather, just wait a few minutes, and it will change.  Got the usual good gas mileage pulling with Xterra.

One favorite trail was closed due to damage to a bridge which was disappointing.  But we walked the half-mile trail to the beach.  It isn't that far to the ocean, but you have to go north a ways to go under the highway along a creek.  Another day we walked two miles, mostly uphill which goes to another trail to the beach.  It goes by little creeks and ponds in the dense forest. The two miles downhill was preferable.  If one was really ambitious,  one could walk on to the lighthouse.  Also, we ambled up a steep hill to see what was there.

Washburne is probably best for small to medium RVs.  It is sometimes fun to watch bigger rigs get in their spaces.  We went during the week, so it was quiet which it won't be soon.  The campgrounds are going to be crowded, but if not too picky about when and where, it's possible to find space.  It's easier to make reservations six months out, but I'm not wild about that.  There are a couple yurts, a place to walk in with a tent, and another area for hiker/biker folks.  I got a space with enough bushes to provide privacy.
