Day 35 - Seaside, OR - TT

It was a slow three hour drive from Newport to Seaside. Not really that far but a lot of small towns and slow cars gawking at the ocean. We are at another Thousand Trails campground for another four nights. I believe that this puts us at 52 nights within their system. I think we got our money’s worth.

After setting up, we headed down to Cannon Beach, which is around ten miles south of Seaside. The picture on the left is the rather famous Haystack Rock. Or at least I think it is.

This is the view to the north. It is around low tide again so the waves were quite a ways out. It was windy and, in my opinion, cold and wet. Parking was a little crowded but that’s partly because we have a 20’ truck. We had the two dogs so we didn’t explore town today.

Thought the rock in the first pic looked familiar, so that's its name. I rode by it after staying in Long Beach, north of you, once you cross the Astoria Bridge.

I’ve seen a lot of pictures of this area but this is the first time I’ve stopped. Bridget’s oldest went to school here for a year so she’s been here before. It’s a pretty nice town and the beach would be better if the sun was out.
