We really like this park. The sites are spacious and we picked 30 amp service with cable, sewer and water over 50 amp service, sewer and water with NO cable. They have pickleball courts, although they were just resurfaced and the lines need to be painted on them. The manager said they are supposed to paint the lines Friday. Woo-hoo! Maybe we'll get to play! But the manager also told us the contractor has taken three years to get the pickleball courts done. THREE YEARS!!?? That's ridiculous! (Don't hold your breath, Sparky, says E.) Oh, well, I can definitely ride my bike for about three or four miles around the perimeter of the park on residential streets so I'm happy about that. And you can, too, Eldy! (R-I-I-I-G-H-T!)
Seaside is where Lewis and Clark's expedition ended at the Pacific Ocean.
In the town of Seaside, there is a little aquarium where seals do all kinds of antics and routines to get you to feed them. There is a family fun park in the middle of town with a big carousel and lots of fun stuff for the kids or grandkids. There are the usual cute shops, boutiques and neat little restaurants. Seaside is where Lewis and Clark ended their journey as I mentioned and a statue marks the spot at the ocean's edge in town. We drove to the trail end just to see the "Turnaround" where people come in with their cars, check out the statue as they drive around and go back out, so we did just that.
And of course, Cannon Beach is also a well known destination for its great shops, boutiques, eating spots, and its famous trademark, Haystack Rock. We saw it from afar today, but we'll plan on getting closer and checking out the tide pools soon. Beautiful weather today...The rainy days are becoming less and less and the sunshine is starting to kick in. Temperatures are in the sixties and creeping upwards a bit. Great weather!
