Pacific Ocean/Siltez River
Finally, July 3rd we got our first glimpse of the Pacific Ocean, made my heart sing! The Oregon Coast is so breath taking and I could spend hours (literally) watching the waves come in, waves go out, waves come in..... The top pic is looking west from Highway 20, soon to intersect with Highway 101, just outside Newport. We left Sutherlin, OR and our friends in Winston, OR to head to heaven. I fell in love with the Oregon Coast our first trip up here in 2006 and am always ready to head this way again. Coyote Rock is located outside Lincoln City on the Siltez River, a fisherman's paradise and importantly for us a Passport America Park, they gave us the PA discount for a whole week and reasonable rate for the other 3 days we're here. The last pic is looking out thru the back window of the RV, nice scenery eh? Yesterday we drove down to Depoe Bay and Yaquina Lighthouse, both favorites. Went to a HUGE Fred Meyers (Kroger) grocery/everything store, would be easy to get lost inside. Groceries are higher since we left Arizona but still have to eat. Fuel, specifically diesel at $4.19, is about the same but with the 10 cents a gal from Kroger and rebate from our bank's credit card, we've got it down to $4.04 right now. The sweet California cherries we're getting here are so wonderful, am eating my share and Dave's too. As we get closer to Washington, I'll switch to grapes in the form of Washington wine...................... Tomorrow is Yaquina again, low tide so we're hoping to get to the tidepools. Friday is lunch in Newport with a lady I knew when working at DHL. We're managing to stay busy and give thanks everyday for health and attitude to live this lifestyle. Hope you're all well and enjoying your summer in Arizona, Tennessee, Arkansas or where ever you are. We think of you often, sending love and hugs, Kathy
