Last Splash in Oregon

Even though we had a red eye flight home to VA, we made the most of our last day in Oregon.  Nearby, in Seaside, OR is a carousel that is over a hundred years old, but has been beautifully restored.  For $1.50 per ride, you can take it for a nice spin.


The girls loved their rides.

Everywhere we went during our stay we saw RVs.  Most are small Class C units, it makes sense, they can get into even the smallest campsites and have no trouble parking, even in downtown areas.

What better way to end a visit than to go to the beach?  We left the carousel and headed to Sunset Beach.
You can drive you vehicle right down to the water.  There is some soft sand and we saw several cars get stuck and had to be pushed out.  Four wheel drive vehicles work much better on the soft sand, but we saw one intrepid RV that made in through the soft parts and set up on the ocean front.

Everybody enjoyed the beach activities.  Ryan, Amber and the girls played in the sand.

We got a little carried away.

Amber enjoyed the nice weather and the warm sun.

Marti did too.

I guess we've lived in the South too long and are not used to cooler weather. ;c)
We went down to the water where some kids were body surfing on bogey boards.

Taylor wanted to wade in the water.

We stuck our toes in the water, too.  We quickly retreated, it was COLD!  Don't know how the bogey board surfers could stay in the water.

We saw another innovation we've never seen before on a beach, horse rentals.

The fog started rolling in, bringing some cold air, so we packed up and headed home.

On the way out, we saw this little RV, set up for beach fun.

We've said it before, Oregon is RV friendly.  We poked our nose into another campground and saw this:

A portable pizza shop, complete with an oven and they deliver!  You can get away from it all and take it all with you. :c)

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment.


  1. I can hear the ocean waves now!!..thanks for sharing your day on the beach!!

  2. I've enjoyed this trip to Oregon with you. That state park sounds like a great place to spend a couple weeks in the RV. Hope it won't be too much longer til the wheels are rolling again. Stay safe and smile every day.


  3. Oh what a lovely day at the beach! Those shots of the toes in the water looked COLD!
    That portable pizza wagon sure seemed innovative for folks with cranky teens who are sick of hot dogs over the campfire, tee heee

  4. Looking forward to being in that area next summer. It's been a while since we've been to any beach.
