Nature & Books belong to the eyes that see them.
Those photos look so beautiful and peaceful. I'm glad you were able to get away for a bit.
Thanks, Diane. I've lost count of how many times we've come up to this wonderful campground, but it's a short drive (under two hours) and one of our favorites. We have the place pretty much to ourselves, although it did fill up a bit over the weekend. We are certainly happy to get away for a little bit before the long winter!
Just, just, just, just beautiful, Les! Love it and thanks for sharing your pictures with us. So lovely. I'm really, really hoping that by next summer we can finally take our Oregon trip...feels like finally, but I guess it's only postponed a year. Sigh.
Awww, thanks for you nice comment, Kay. We have been so lucky to have such great weather while camping this past week. Only one day of rain, which we didn't mind. I hope you guys are able to get back to Oregon next summer!
So pretty and peaceful. Much needed at this time.
Stacy, we've been here for a little over a week and it's been wonderful! Peaceful, good weather and a great way to escape all of the news.
Aaahhh....Nehalem! We love that campground and beach, too. It looks like you're having perfect weather. What a wonderful interlude in these trying times. Your photos are gorgeous!
Laurel, Nehalem is one of our favorite places on the Oregon coast. We always stay in the F Loop down by the horse camp. It's first-come, first-served and in the off-season, we almost always have our end of the loop to ourselves. Well, if you don't include the deer or elk! It's been a great 11-day stay and we're thankful we were able to get away and spend some time around a campfire, walks on the beach, both of which provided a great distraction from politics and news.
Wow that's gorgeous. So glad you got to RV. I think my husband & I should plan a trip down the 101. So many wonderful sights to see! What a great trip you had.
Susan, we had a grand time. Lots of sitting outside in the sunshine doing absolutely nothing other than talking, reading or watching the elk & deer wander about the campground. Ah, a trip down 101 would be marvelous. We've done most of it from San Diego, CA to Forks, WA. There are some areas where it's not easy to navigate in an RV, but for the most part, we've had some great stops along the way. You could spend a couple of months and still not see everything! Of course, if you do plan a trip, be sure to let me know when you'll be in OR. We're right off 101!
Just so beautiful and peaceful. I'm looking at that campfire. We have to be within a 30-minute drive of whatever hospital my husband is working at, which means we end up in "city" campgrounds. We've rarely been allowed to have a fire. Our new campground doesn't have rings but will allow propane fire pits. I've already been on Amazon trying to find a tiny one. We'll see if I actually buy one.
Jen, it was so peaceful. Now that the summer season is over, there are very few people in the first-come, first-served sites. I think our loop had 6 rvs in it during the week. It was a little busier on the weekend, but nothing like the summer months. As far as a "real" fire, we're kind of over it. We always wind up buying wood at the campground and it's never dry enough, so we wind up with a lot of smoke after the tinder and kindling have burned. We've decided to get a propane fire ring and have this one on our Amazon list: Outland Firebowl 870 Premium Outdoor Portable Propane Gas Fire Pit. I think it will be a lot easier and still provide us with warmth and an active flame. I'll keep you posted!
