DAY 4 - OREGON COAST ROAD TRIP

Day 4, Oregon Coast Road Trip: Cannon Beach (think Carmel, CA) through Seaside (think Ocean Beach, CA) and on to Astoria, a working port, mostly shipping logs to China these days. It's really sad to drive along so many roadways with their 'beauty strips' of trees to hide the stumps and spindly planted "forests." People have to make a living but it's too bad hemp wasn't chosen as the building material of choice a long time ago. Oh well, enough of the rant. This visit to Astoria we skipped the great museums we've visited in the past and went to the Lewis and Clark exhibit at the state park. Then on to our hotel, the Cannery Pier, built right over the water. The pic of the water and bridge is from our balcony over the Columbia River. We went over the high, don't look down, bridge to Washington for dinner at The Depot.

DAY 3 - OREGON COAST ROAD TRIP


We took a beautiful walk on the beach outside our room at The Inn at Spanish Head. Then got on the back roads along the coast going north toward Cannon Beach. The sun was out today, after a true rainstorm yesterday. We stopped at Cape Lookout and hiked to the point, a nice 5 miler with views to the surf below. There were some pretty impressive drop offs so we were careful on the slippery, muddy trail. Then on toward Cannon Beach with dips into pretty little bay towns along back roads with little traffic. Then the Stephanie Inn - what a treat! The beach here is gorgeous, long, flat and at sunset people come out to enjoy the views of Haystack Rock. Had a fabulous dinner and breakfast. Now, on to Astoria . . . .
