Camping in Oregon

Finally back home in British Columbia.  We arrived from Australia and immediately set out on our annual family camping trip on the coast of Oregon state.  We go to a lovely state campground, at Nehalem Bay State Park, just south of Cannon Beach.  This photo was taken from the viewpoint on Hwy 101 as we approach Manzania and the campground.002

The campground is behind the sand dunes, and between the bay and the river.

This is the path from the beach to the campground,

And from here you can turn around and look at the beach.

Walking along the beach is great exercise, and we can literally walk for miles.

The waves are fantastic.  Nothing like letting the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.

It was great fun to have the whole family there, and to spend time with our grandchildren.  Highlights were the delicious, lively, and fun meals – note that I am closest to the wine.

Another highlight was teaching the grand-kids to play bocce ball,

I love the focus on Tommy’s face – he won that game!

And, of course, we loved the sunsets over the ocean.

And so, until next year.
